Caledon Admirals

Admirals Jr. A Hockey ClubIn 2021, after a year of COVID-driven hiatus, both the Admirals Jr. A Hockey Club (OJHL) and the Bombers Jr. B Hockey Club (GOJHL) moved to Caledon to share a facility with the newly-acquired Caledon Golden Hawks Jr. C Hockey Club of the PJHL.

This move completed the junior hockey development system that the Arsenault Hockey Group (AHG) sought to form for many years.  With teams at all three levels of junior hockey sharing a facility inside the Mayfield Recreation Centre, player development is now possible without players moving to different facilities or cities.

Brampton Admirals

Brampton AdmiralsOn June 18, 2018, team president David Arsenault announced a move.  Citing poor local support and an improved development model by having both his Junior "A" and Junior "B" teams playing in the same arena, he relocated the Orangeville Flyers to Memorial Arena in Brampton and rebranded them the Brampton Admirals.

Orangeville Flyers

On April 14, 2011, ten days after the original Orangeville Flyers were disbanded by the league, the OJHL and the Villanova Knights announced that The Knights were moving to Orangeville under the name the Orangeville Flyers.  They played their home games at the Alder Street Community Center until the end of the 2017-2018 season, when it was announced that the team would relocate again.

Orangeville Crushers

The Orangeville Crushers was a Canadian Junior "A" ice hockey team from Orangeville, Ontario. They played in the Mid-Ontario Junior C Hockey League (MOJCHL), the  Midwestern Junior B Hockey League (MWJHL), and the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL - Junior A).

The team originally launched in the Central Ontario Junior C Hockey League, which, after the Crushers' first season in the league, became the Mid-Ontario Junior C Hockey League. In the late 80's and early 90's, the Crushers played in the Mid-Ontario Junior C Hockey League and won two straight league championships.

In the mid-90's, the Crushers were accepted into the Midwestern Junior B Hockey League, where they stayed until 2006. Orangeville was accepted to play in the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League for the start of the 2006-07 season after a vote by the OPJHL teams resulted in an overwhelming 33-3 vote. The team's head coach for the beginning of 2006-07 was to be Steve Chelios, brother of former NHLer Chris Chelios, but he was let go in late October. The President of the team, former NHLer Dale Hawerchuk, took over as head coach.

In 2010, the team changed its name to the Orangeville Flyers but, on April 3, 2011, despite three consecutive .500 or more seasons, the franchise ceased operations.

Villanova Knights

In 2007, local businessman David Arsenault (Governor/Owner) along with St. Thomas of Villanova College revived a previously defunct team, bringing it back into the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League (OPJHL) under the banner of Villanova College.

The Villanova Knights were announced officially on May 15, 2007, playing their home games at York University's Canlan Ice Gardens.

Dukes / Dodgers / Islanders / Rattlers / Thunderbirds

Thornhill Thunderbirds - WikipediaIn 1993, after a year as the Weston Dukes followed by a year as the Weston Dodgers, the team folded and their franchise was moved to Thornhill and became the Thornhill Islanders. In 1997 they were renamed the Thornhill Rattlers until 2004, when they assumed the name Thornhill Thunderbirds.

After playing in multiple leagues for many years, the players of the team started to get let go or traded for cash to any interested team and, in the summer 2006, the team disbanded.

Henry Carr Crusaders

Like the Toronto St. Michael's Majors and St. Michael's Buzzers, the Crusaders were a secondary school based Junior hockey team. The team's affiliation was with the Father Henry Carr Secondary School of the Toronto Catholic District School Board.

In 1980, they took their high school team and joined the Metro Junior "B" Hockey League, where they played until 1991, even after the league left the Ontario Hockey Association in 1989. The team was famous for its first undefeated Metro season in 1983 (34-0-2), when they won the All-Ontario Jr. B Championship, the Sutherland Cup. After five rounds of playoffs, what it took to win the Sutherland Cup, the Crusaders had accumulated 54 wins, 2 losses, 2 ties, and 2 OT losses in 60 regulation games.

In 1991, when the Metro league declared itself Junior "A", they transferred the franchise to the Weston Dukes of the Metro Junior "A" Hockey League (MetJAHL).

Henry Carr still fields a hockey team to this day, but again at the High School Hockey level.
