The Cumberland County Blues are a Canadian Junior ice hockey club from Springhill, Nova Scotia. They are members of the Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League and are 2010 Don Johnson Cup Maritime Junior B champions.

History[edit]

In 2007, the Blues hosted the Don Johnson Cup, the Maritime Junior B Championship. They would go on to lose in the final to the East Hants Penguins 2-0. They finished the tournament with a 4-2-0 record.

In 2010, the Cumberland County Blues won their second consecutive NSJHL championship. They won the right to attend their second straight Don Johnson Cup Maritime Junior B Championship. In 2009, after an impressive 3-1-0 record in the round robin, they were dropped 6-5 in the semi-final by the St. John's Junior Hockey League's St. John's Jr. Caps in Bay Roberts, Newfoundland and Labrador. In 2010, in St. Margaret's Bay, Nova Scotia, the Blues had a chance for redemption. In the first game of the round robin, the Blues clipped the host Bay Ducks 6-4. In their second game, they defeated the defending Jr. Caps 3-2 in an overtime shootout. The Blues third game was lost to the New Brunswick Junior B Hockey League's Charlotte County Jr. Silverkings 4-3, but they closed out the round robin strong the next day by beating the Island Junior Hockey League's Kensington Vipers 7-2 to clinch first in the tournament. On April 24, the Blues again played the Jr. Caps in the semi-final. The Blues again defeated them 3-2 to enter the finals. On April 25, in the final, the Blues beat the Bay Ducks 4-1 to clinch their first ever Don Johnson Cup as Maritime Champions.
