The Goderich Flyers are a Canadian Junior ice hockey team based in Goderich, Ontario, Canada.[3]

History[edit]

After the failed and short-lived Lakeshore Pirates folded in 1999,[4] the town of Goderich pushed for a new team. They were granted expansion in 2003[1] after the folding of the Wiarton Wolves. The team was named the Sailors after another Junior C team that had folded in 1993.[2] The Sailors were granted a leave of absence for the 2013-14 season to try and re-organize. On April 17, 2014, the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA) advised the organizing committee under the direction of Doug Cruickshank that they were accepted back into the Western Ontario Junior C Hockey League for the 2014-15 season. In preparation for the new season the team announced a GM a new Head Coach, and a new name Goderich Flyers Jr. C Hockey Club.

In 2004-05, the Sailors squeezed into the fourth and final playoff spot. With an automatic berth to the Western league semi-final, the Sailors met up with the Wingham Ironmen. The Ironmen swept the Sailors 4-games-to-none.[5]

The 2005-06 season ended with the Goderich Sailors in fourth place. In the playoff quarter-final, the Sailors drew the fifth seeded Walkerton Hawks for a best-of-3 series. The Hawks made quick work of the Sailors and won the series 2-games-to-none.[5]

The 2006-07 season saw the Goderich Sailors end the years in last place, the sixth seed. In the Western league quarter-final they again drew the Walkerton Hawks, but this year in the best-of-5 series. The Hawks, who were coming off of a rather strong regular season, defeated the Sailors 3-games-to-1.[5]
