History[edit]

In 1968, the Jets joined the Border Cities Junior "B" league. Although not much is known about the league prior to '68, it is thought that the team originated in the "Bluewater Junior "C" Hockey League" by OHA historians. When the BCJCHL became the Great Lakes Junior C Hockey League in 1970, the Jets stayed on board. In 1972, the Jets moved up to Western Junior "B", but were sent back to Junior "C" in 1984. In 1989, the Jets came back to the Western "B".

The Petrolia Jets have petitioned the OHA for a permanent move to Forest, Ontario. [1] In late April, the governing body of the Western Ontario Conference of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League approved the move of the Petrolia Jets.[2] Their name was changed to the Lambton Shores Predators, to match the name of the local minor hockey system.[3]


On September 11, 2008, the Predators played their first game. The game was in Sarnia against the Sarnia Legionnaires. Sarnia won 8-5.
