The Pembroke Lumber Kings are a Junior "A" ice hockey team from Pembroke, Ontario, Canada. They are a part of the Central Canada Hockey League and are the winningest team in CCHL (formerly CJHL) history as well as 2011 Royal Bank Cup National Junior A Champions.

History[edit]

The Pembroke Lumber Kings are the oldest member of the CCHL beginning operations in 1961. However, in 1979-80 the Lumber Kings were suspended for one season and replaced with the Pembroke Royals. The Pembroke Lumber Kings were approved to rejoin the league for 1980-81.

The Pembroke Lumber Kings won a total of 13 Art Bogard Cup championships between 1973 and 2011. The Lumber Kings broke a league record winning five consecutive league championships from 2007 to 2011, appearing in five Fred Page Cup tournaments (2006 as hosts), winning in 2007 and 2011, and finishing as finalists in 2006, 2008, and 2010. In 2011, the Pembroke Lumber Kings became only the second CCHL team since the 1976 Rockland Nationals to win the national championship.

In June 2006, Keefe became the Lumber Kings' head coach and general manager.[1]

Owner Sheldon Keefe announced over Twitter on May 29, 2013 that he had sold the Pembroke Lumber Kings to former Calgary Flames player, and Eganville native Dale McTavish.[2]. With Sheldon Keefe no longer in charge of ownership, general management and coaching duties, the Pembroke Lumber Kings success began to fade away, despite making the league finals in 2015 - losing to Carleton Place and not qualifying for the 2017 playoffs - for the first time in 13 years.

Retired Numbers[edit]
