Founded in 1959, the Kings started out in the first Border Cities Junior "B" Hockey League. In the 1960s they spent some time in the Bluewater Junior "C" Hockey League after the first BCJHL folded. When the second BCJHL came around, they were back on board. In 1971, the league became the Great Lakes Junior Hockey League. They, with the Blenheim Blades have been with the league all along. The 1971 season saw the GLJHL play as both a Junior "B" and "C" league. The top 3 teams went on to the Ontario Hockey Association Junior "B" playoffs, while the 4th and 5th place teams played off for the league's first Junior "C" title and a birth into the Clarence Schmalz Cup playdowns. The Kings made quick work of the GLJHL playoffs and in the end, possibly aided by the regular season battles against the Petrolia Jets and the Windsor Royals, won the Clarence Schmalz Cup.
