Joining the ranks of Junior hockey in 1990, the Bears were a member of the Metro Junior A Hockey League. Prior to this, the team did have a history of Junior C hockey.
The team did make hockey history on February 21, 1997 when their goalie, became the first goaltender in hockey history to score two goals (both empty net) in a hockey game against the Durham Huskies during the Metro Junior A Hockey League 1996-97 regular season.
From 1997 until 2004, the franchise was the Huntsville Wildcats. The team never truly found their groove and folded halfway through the 2003-04 season after 23 straight loses and a goals against average of roughly 10.
For the 2004-05 Season, the team reformed as the Huntsville-Muskoka Otters after Sherwood Bassin, Ray Irwin and Tom McCarthy took over ownership and have been with the league since. In 2007, the team was sold to Kris House and Jason Armstrong, who shortened their team name to the Huntsville Otters.
