Originating as the Hespeler Shamrocks, founded around 1960, the team became the Cambridge Shamrocks in 1979 due to a town amalgamation. In 1982, the Sharocks were bought by Joe Holody and moved to Guelph to become the farm team to the Guelph Platers. The team has since changed its name to the Fire and then the Dominators, but had kept the "Platers" moniker until 1996, despite their parent club moving and stranding them to become the Owen Sound Platers in 1989.
The team originated in the Central Junior C Hockey League, a league now known as the Western Junior C Hockey League. In 1970, they joined the "Mid-Ontario Junior "B" Hockey League", and in 1971 joined the new Central Junior "B", the precursor to the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League. In 1974 they moved to the Waterloo-Wellington Junior League, which, in 1977, became the Midwestern "B" and have been there ever since.
Although this franchise has a long history and is very well known, the team has never experienced much success at all and often has gone for long periods of time without making the playoffs. The team has been bought and sold multiple times and has even folded for a season. In the summer of 2009, the Dominators were bought and renamed the Guelph Hurricanes.
