The Hamilton Red Wings are a Tier II Junior "A" ice hockey team from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. They are a part of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League. Prior to joining the OPJHL, the Wings played in Central Division Hockey.

HistoryEdit

The Red Wings were founded in 1973 as the second Hamilton-based team in the Niagara District Junior B Hockey League.

After one season, the league divided into two leagues and the Red Wings went the way of the Golden Horseshoe Junior Hockey League. In 1975-76, the other Hamilton team joined the Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League and became the Hamilton Mountain A's. The draw of a local Junior A club weakened the team and they took a one year leave a season later.

In 1977, under new ownership the team came back as the Kiltys. Although a very competitive team, it took the Kiltys until 1992-93 to win a Golden Horseshoe championship. With that win, the Kiltys were promoted to the newly formed Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League with a variety of other Junior B squads.

Outside of some brief troubles in the late 1990s, the Hamilton franchise has been very successful in regular season play in the OPJHL. The team was renamed the Hamilton Red Wings in 2002. They have yet to win a league championship.
