The Hamilton Aerovox was a Junior "B" team in Hamilton, Ontario. They played in various leagues under the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA). The Aerovox won the Sutherland Cup, emblematic of the OHA's Junior B championship, in 1947-48.

During the late 1940s, the Aerovox Hockey Club was Hamilton’s only Junior B team, and during this era were a solid club which vied for the OHA’s top prize.


Sponsored by one of Hamilton’s most noted industrial concerns, Aerovox, which produced electrical components, the team was comprised of up-and-coming former players from the city’s bantam, juvenile, and midget leagues.

The team, which had compiled a 10-1-1 record in 1947, was a finalist for the 1946-47 Sutherland Cup Championship, losing three games to two to the De La Salle Academy. The Aerovox team won the Cup in 1948 over the St. Michael's Buzzers.
