History[edit]

Richmond Hill[edit]

Richmond Hill Rams MetJHL.JPG

The Rams originated in the Metro Junior "B" league in 1969. They made the jump to OHA Tier II Junior "A" in 1972 and remained with the league until it folded in 1987. For two seasons the league participated in the Central "B" before jumping back to the Metro "B" in 1989. In 1991, the league became the Metro Junior A Hockey League. The team moved to North York in 1992, and became the North York Rangers.

In 2006, the newly created rebel league, the Greater Metro Junior A Hockey League, resurrected the Richmond Hill Rams. The team will be one of the seven teams to begin play in 2006-07 season, unsanctioned by the Ontario Hockey Association, Ontario Hockey Federation, and Hockey Canada. Ironically, the original Rams played unsanctioned hockey from 1989 until 1995.

North York[edit]

The Rangers have been in North York since 1992.

An earlier version of the North York Rangers originated in 1967, when the Woodbridge Rangers of the Metro Junior B league moved to North York. The team operated out of the Metro League until the Ontario Provincial league was founded in 1972, at which point the Rangers and four other Metro teams moved to the new league. The Rangers made it to the Royal Bank Cup in 1980 and 1983. In 1984 the team was renamed the North York Red Wings, and after the season, it folded.
