The Almaguin Spartans are a Canadian Junior ice hockey team based in South River, Ontario, Canada. They play in the Greater Metro Junior A Hockey League. They were originally the Mattawa Voyageurs of Mattawa, Ontario.

HistoryEdit

The Voyageurs were announced in the spring of 2011.[1]

On September 16, 2011, the Voyageurs played their first ever game, at home, against the Bobcaygeon Bucks. The Voyageurs would end up losing the game in a shootout 5-4, but picked up a point for their regulation tie. On the 18th, at home again, the Voyageurs picked up their first ever win 5-4 in overtime over the Algoma Avalanche.

In July 2014, the team was approved for relocation to South River, Ontario where they became the Almaguin Spartans.[2]

In March 2015 Myles Pepin was promoted from assistant coach and was named the team's new head coach.
