The Falconbridge Falcons were a senior and a junior team that played out of Sudbury, Ontario, in the 1930's and 1940's.

It was sponsored by the Falconbridge Mining Company.

The Falcons competed in the southern district of the Northern Ontario Hockey Association's (NOHA) senior series. They won the NOHA titles in 1933-34, 1935-36 Northern Ontario Senior Playoffs, and 1937-38 Northern Ontario Senior Playoffs.

In each year they went on to the Eastern Canada Allan Cup playoffs as the Sudbury Falcons.

In 1935-36 they lost to the Hamilton Tigers in the quarter final. The Tigers, however, refused to advance since they would have been forced to play a home game at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens. The Falcons took their place and won the eastern title. They lost the 1935-36 Allan Cup Final to the Kimberley Dynamiters.

The junior team won the Northern Ontario junior B titles in 1939-40 and 1940-41.
