The Carleton Place Canadians are a Canadian junior ice hockey team from Carleton Place, Ontario. The Canadians are members of the Central Canada Hockey League and Canadian Junior Hockey League, and as such are eligible for the Eastern Canadian Fred Page Cup championship and Royal Bank Cup National championship.

History[edit]

The Carleton Place Kings began play in 1969 in the Renfrew-Lanark Junior C Hockey League. Soon after, the league folded and the Kings ended up in the Rideau-St. Lawrence Junior B Hockey League in 1971. This league later became the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. In 2009 it was announced that the team had been granted expansion to the Central Junior A Hockey League. Although the CJHL franchise has a different name, the Legion Kings are still considered the forerunner to the Canadians franchise.[1]

The Canadians played their first Junior A game on September 11, 2009. At home, the Canadians dropped a 4-1 decision to the Nepean Raiders. On September 13, 2009, the Canadians won their first ever CJHL game, defeating the Ottawa Jr. Senators 3-2 in a shootout on the road.

The 2013-14 season was a landmark season for the Canadians. They shattered both the CCHL's wins and points records en route to their first regular season title, falling one win short of shattering the 1972-73 Pembroke Lumber Kings league record for best winning percentage (47-4-4).
