The Lethbridge Sugar Kings were a founding junior "A" ice hockey team in the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) based in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

History[edit]

The Lethbridge Sugar Kings were one of the five original member hockey teams of the AJHL, which began play in 1963-64.[1] The team folded following the 1972–73 season with the forthcoming arrival of major junior hockey to Lethbridge.[1] The team was saved by a different ownership group and renamed the Lethbridge Longhorns for the 1973–74 season, but lasted only two seasons due to competition with major junior hockey.[1] The Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Hockey League arrived from Swift Current in 1974.
