The Stratford Midgets were a junior team from Stratford, Ontario that played in the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA). They played in the OHA from the beginnings of the league in the early 1890's until 1938. The Stratford junior teams later changed their name to the Stratford Kroehlers.

They had been one of the most powerful teams in the OHA and won the playoff titles six times.

The most famous Midget alumnus is Howie Morenz.

In 1919-20 the Midgets lost the OHA final to the Toronto Canoe Club. This series featured future NHL superstar Lionel Conacher of Toronto vs. Stratford's Morenz.

The next season the Midgets lost the 1920-21 Memorial Cup Final to the Winnipeg Falcons. That was the closest the team would get to winning the Memorial Cup.
