The Niagara Riverhawks are a Canadian Junior ice hockey team based in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. They play in the Niagara & District Junior C Hockey League.

History[edit]

In 1987, the Chippawa Merchants are granted an OHA Junior C franchise and are based in the Chippawa Willoughby Arena.

In 1999, the Chippawa Merchants change their team name to the Riverhawks.

In 2001, the Riverhawks defeated the Belle River Canadiens of the Great Lakes Junior C Hockey League 4-games-to-1 to win the Clarence Schmalz Cup as Ontario Hockey Association provincial Junior C champions.

In 2010, the Riverhawks leave the Chippawa Willoughby Arena for the brand new Gale Centre, located in Niagara Falls. As a part of the move the team changed colours from their original red, white and black scheme to teal, gray and white with orange trim.

In 2014, the Riverhawks were granted a name change to the Niagara Riverhawks to reflect their use of the Gale Centre in Niagara Falls as their home arena.
