Team History

The team began play in 1973 when the inactive Montreal Jr. Canadiens franchise was revived and moved to Kingston as the Kingston Canadians, to play in the OHA. (The original Montreal Jr. Canadiens franchise are now the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, playing in the QMJHL). The Kingston Canadians used the same colour scheme for uniforms as the Montreal Canadiens. The Kingston logo replaced the Montreal "H" for les Habitantswith the letter "K" for Kingston. The Rouyn-Noranda Huskies are a major junior hockey team of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. ... The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (French: la Ligue de hockey junior majeur du Québec, abbreviated QMJHL in English, LHJMQ in French) is one of the three Major Junior A Tier I hockey leagues which constitute the Canadian Hockey League. ...


Some sources show the name as "Kingston Canadiens", but the english "Canadians" is correct. The team used the uniforms and logo (modified) of the NHL Montreal Canadiens. The Montreal Canadiens are the oldest established National Hockey League franchise, and one of the most successful in all of North American sports history. ...


The team played from 1973 to 1980 in the OHA, then from 1980 to 1988 in the OHL. The Kingston Canadians franchise was sold following the 1987-88 season, and the new owner renamed the team Kingston Raiders.

Notable Events
  • In 1985-1986 season, Chris Clifford is the OHL first goalie to score a goal.
  • 28 game losing streak in 1987-1988, the final seaon of the Canadians
  • A brawl during pre-game skate before a game with the Toronto Marlboros, in which Kingston forward Mike Maurice skated into the Marlboro end of the ice to get one of the nets. From then on, the OHL made the policy of having on ice officials present before the visiting team is allowed on the ice was put into effect.
