The Red Wings had an incredible championship season in 1983-84 when they captured three titles making them Provincial, Western Canadian and National champions all in one season.
They had a solid regular season where they finished in second place in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) which also earned them a playoff berth. They went on to defeat North Battleford, Melville and finally Yorkton to claim the league championship. They then proceeded to defeat a team from Langley, B.C., to win the Western Canadian Junior Hockey Championship which then sent them to nationals.
