The Orillia Terriers are a Canadian junior ice hockey team based in Orillia, Ontario, Canada. They played in the Georgian Mid-Ontario Junior C Hockey League until 2016 when the league merged into the Provincial Junior Hockey League.

History[edit]

The Orillia Terriers are the first junior hockey club in Orillia since the Orillia Terriers of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League moved to Rama, Ontario in 1997.[1]

On September 13, 2013, the Terriers travelled to Penetanguishene, Ontario to play their first ever league game. The Penetang Kings would win the game 4-0. Gordie Weiss would get to play this first ever game in net.[2] The next night, the Terriers hosted the Huntsville Otters in their first ever home game. At 12:38 of the first period Josh Allan would score the first goal in team history. Marty Lawlor would score a hat-trick (including the game winner) and Weiss would play the entire game in net to clinch the franchise's first ever victory.[3]

The Terriers would finish their first ever season in seventh place out of ten teams with a record of 17 wins, 19 losses, and 4 regulation ties.

On February 1, 2014, the Terriers would play their first ever playoff game, losing 3-2 in overtime to the Midland Flyers.[4] Weiss played the entire game and Daniel Lee scored the first playoff marker in team history.[5]
