The Toronto Blue Ice Jets were a Canadian Junior ice hockey team based out of Thornhill, Ontario, Canada. The team played in the Greater Metro Junior A Hockey League (GMHL).


The Jets were Thornhill's only Junior hockey team after the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League's Toronto Thunderbirds have relocated to King City to become the Villanova Knights.

They were founded as the Toronto Canada Moose in the inaugural year of the GMHL in the 2006–07 season as one of seven original league members. The first game took place on September 9, 2006, against the King Wild in Thornhill, Ontario resulting in a 5-1 loss. On September 11, 2006, the team earned their first win defeating the Deseronto Thunder by a score of 5-2. The Moose finished their inaugural season with a 19-20-0-3 record. They placed fifth in the league after a season long race for fourth with the Deseronto Thunder and Nipissing Alouettes. Their first playoff appearance put them up against the King Wild in the league quarterfinals. Unfortunately, the Moose would be eliminated in five games in a best-of-seven series (3-8, 8-3, 3-5, 1-9, 2-6).

The Moose started their second season off very slowly. After breaking a long losing streak, the Moose managed to earn fourteen more wins but still only finished in eleventh place in the now thirteen team league. In the first round, the Moose were picked by the top seeded Bradford Rattlers. The Moose managed to keep it close over the first three games but the Rattlers still swept the series in four games.

On January 3, 2008, the Moose played against Kazakhstan's Torpedo UST-Kamenogorsk Under-18 squad in an exhibition game. Despite rallying to tie the game 4-4 at the end of the second, the Moose fell to the Torpedo 8-5.

In spring 2013, the Moose were renamed the Blue Ice Jets. On September 6, 2013, the Blue Ice Jets played their first game since changing ownership against South Muskoka Shield and lost 5-4. The first win under the Blue Ice Jets name took place on September 7, 2013 against the Bobcaygeon Bucks in Thornhill, Ontario. The Blue Ice Jets beat the Bucks 17-2.

For the 2016–17 season, the Blue Ice Jets were scheduled to play their first home game on September 6, 2016. However, it appeared the team never took the ice and within a week the Blue Ice Jets had been removed from the GMHL.[1] On September 13, the GMHL president stated that the Blue Ice Jets had taken the season off and possibly plans to relocate for the next season.
