The Sioux Lookout Flyers are a Junior "A" ice hockey team from Sioux Lookout, Ontario, Canada. They are a part of the Superior International Junior Hockey League.

The Sioux Lookout Flyers were added to the Superior International Junior Hockey League for the 2008-09 season. The Flyers mark the first major level hockey in the town since the Intermediate leagues of the 1970s.

The Flyers are Ontario Junior hockey's most Northerly club at 50° 06′ North.

On September 19, 2008, the Flyers lost their first ever game to the Schreiber Diesels in Schreiber, Ontario by a score of 10-2. On September 26, the Flyers played their first home game and lost 6-2 to the defending SIJHL champion Dryden Ice Dogs.

On November 12, 2008, sixteen games into a winless season, the ownership of the team pulled the plug on the franchise. Two days later, the town of Sioux Lookout held a town meeting in regards to the team and elected to save the team as a community with the help of a Winnipeg-based investor. The team went on hiatus for three games, but returned to action on November 19. [1]

The Flyers won their first ever game on January 2, 2009, defeating the Dryden Ice Dogs, on the road, 5-4 in overtime. The victory was Sioux Lookout's 30th league game.
