History[edit]

In 1995 the Vaughan Flames joined the Ontario Women's Hockey Association (OWHA). Since 1995, the Vaughan Flames have grown to accommodate teams in all levels of play, including Senior. The club joined the National Women's Hockey League (NWHL) in 1999.[1] The Team adopted different names: Clearnet Lightning (1999 to 2001), Telus Lightning (2001 to 2006), Durham Lightning (2005–2006) and Etobicoke Dolphins in 2006-07 (the last season of NWHL). In 2007 the Vaughan Flames joined the Canadian Women's Hockey League (CWHL). In 2010 it was announced that the CWHL would reduce the number of its teams to five. The Vaughan Flames team will no longer be playing in the CWHL, while the intermediates and other young level programs continue.[2]
