History

The team began play in 1961, in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, and was named after the NHL's Detroit Red Wings. The team was one of the founding members of the Western Hockey League in 1966, but left in 1968 to return to the SJHL. Increasing travel costs of playing in the Western Hockey League was the main reason for moving back to the SJHL.

The team is the most successful in the league in terms of league championships won. They have won 8 SJHL championships in their history. They won it in 1970, 1971, 1984, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, and 2001.

The Red Wings won the Abbott Cup in 1970, making them the Junior "A" Champion for Western Canada and earning a playoff against the George Richardson Memorial Trophy winning Eastern Champion for the Memorial Cup. The Red Wings lost the Memorial Cup competition against the Montreal Junior Canadiens.

The team won the Royal Bank Cup, representative of national Canadian Junior A Hockey League supremacy, in 2005. They won the Cup on home ice, defeating the Camrose Kodiaks 3–2 in front of 2,152 fans in the championship game. They also won the trophy in 1984, defeating the Orillia Travelways 3–0 in the seventh game in front of 2,375 fans at the Weyburn Colosseum.
