CALEDON CANADIANS

(1992 - 1999)

In 1992, the Caledon Canadians were formed joining the Central Ontario Junior 'A' Hockey League. The team was a powerhouse right from the start dominating league play. The team was set up by one of the inventors of 'Trivial Pursuit'. In 1993, the team moved into the Metro Junior 'A' league and continued to do well. In 1998, the owners of the team managed to secure an expansion franchise for Brampton in the OHL. The Canadians were turned over to new ownership. The team struggled in the following campaign but still had significant fan support. A delay in paying for ice time at the start of the 1999-2000 campaign, along with a completely inept town council who appeared bent on running the team out of town resulted in the demise of the team.
