The OHL Arena & Travel Guide - Brantford Civic Centre, Brantford Alexanders (525 words)
The Alexanders were surprisingly good in their brief Brantford run and future NHLers like Ric Natress, Allen Bester, Dave Gagner and Mark Hunter can be found in the team photos.
The team enjoyed moderate success on the ice in Brantford, but Brantford is small and the Alexanders eventually moved on to Hamilton to become the Steelhawks, and then to Niagara Falls to become the Thunder.
The Civic Centre is still used in Brantford for all levels of hockey, the top ones being the Brantford Blast Senior "A" team, and the Brantford Golden Eagles, who play in the Mid-Western Junior "B" league.
