The MHG Ice Centre in Saco is the permanent home for the Portland Junior Pirates and its 14 youth teams and 2 junior teams (EJHL/Empire). This sports complex allows the Pirates to make their own hours, have a consistent schedule and grow even more.

Students from Thornton Academy, Massabesic High School and Scarborough High School, as well as local figure skaters, are also using the facility. In addition, Portland Junior Pirates Skating Schools provide skating lessons for kids of all ages.

Our own Joyce Broadwater has been heavily involved with the MHG. Her son Nick was the Portland Junior Pirates goalie for several years and is now attending college through a hockey scholarship. (Go, Nick!)
