Team History

When the Kingston Canadians were sold in 1988, the club's name was changed to the Kingston Raiders for the 1988-89 season by the new owner, Lou Kazowski. After a dismal season in 1987-1988, he hoped that the team would acquire the "tough" image of the Los Angeles Raiders football team. The uniforms would be black and silver uniforms, similar to those recently adopted by the NHL's Los Angeles Kings. The Kingston Canadians were a junior ice hockey team in the Ontario Hockey League. ... The Oakland Raiders are a National Football League team based in Oakland, California. ...

Lou Kazoswki was extremely unpopular locally. After a number of disputes with the OHL, he was encouraged to sell the team and was effectively barred from future ownership. The new owners included Wren Blair and Bob Attersley, who renamed the team Kingston Frontenacs after the EPHL team of which they had both been members. The Kingston Frontenacs are a junior ice hockey team in the Ontario Hockey League, based in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. ...


In their only season of existence, the Raiders finished 7th in the Leyden division and did not qualify for the playoffs. The team's coach was Larry Mavety. From this team, six players made the NHL.
