History

Easily the most powerful team in the Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey League in recent years, the Golden Knights have won five league championships in eight seasons. Their greatest challenge to date may have been the Westport Rideaus in the 2005-06 playoffs. The Rideaus had the Golden Knights pinned down and against the wall 3--to-2 in the final, but the Golden Knights battled back and took the last two nail-biters to win their fourth title.

The Golden Knights recently had a banner year for the 2008-2009 season by winning the D. Arnold Carson trophy for the 6th time in the team's history and its 5th league championship in 8 years. The Knights also captured the 2008 Boxing Day Tournament title.

2011-2012 will bring a New owner and a new coach to the Knights,Blake Sinclair sold the team to Mr.Steve Sundin formerly of the Perth Blue Wings.
