The Campbellford Rebels are a Canadian Junior ice hockey team based in Campbellford, Ontario, Canada. They play in the Empire B Junior C Hockey League of the Ontario Hockey Association.

History[edit]

Campbellford's junior hockey history began in 1980. The Campbellford Merchants joined the Quinte-St. Lawrence Junior C Hockey League.

In 1986, the Quinte-St. Lawrence league was falling apart and merged with the more western Central Ontario Junior C Hockey League. The Merchants and most of the other local teams, like the Frankford Huskies, were forced into hiatus.

In 1989, The Eastern Ontario Junior C Hockey League was formed in the same region as the Quinte-St. Lawrence League. In 1992, the Campbellford Rebels were formed to compete in the new league. In 1995, the Eastern Ontario Junior C Hockey League became the Empire B Junior C Hockey League to stifle confusion between the league and the neighbouring Ottawa District Hockey Association's Eastern Ontario Junior C Hockey League.

Success for the Rebels began in 1996. The Rebels won the 1997, 1998, and 2000 league championships. After disappointment in 2001 and 2002, the Rebels were again victorious in 2003 and 2004. With five league championships in eight years, the Rebels have yet to win the Clarence Schmalz Cup as All-Ontario Champions.

The Rebels finished third overall in the 2005-06 regular season. Because of a new divisionary system in the league, despite finishing the season with a losing record, the Rebels finished first in their division and received a bye to the league semi-final. In the semi-final, the Rebels drew the Amherstview Jets who beat Campbellford 4-games-to-1.

The Rebels ended up in fourth place in the 2006-07 final standings. Barely sneaking in on the final playoff spot, the Rebels came up against the top seeded Colborne Cobras who polished off Campbellford 4-games-to-none to move on to the league final.
