HistoryEdit

The Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen were a senior team in Kitchener, Ontario.

Their name came from a common North American corruption of the German word Deutsch which means German. Kitchener's original name was Berlin and the original settlers were German.

They were one of the most successful senior teams of their era. In twelve seasons of senior play they won their league title 5 times and the Allan Cup twice (1952-53 and 1954-55).

The Dutchmen were also Canada's representative in the 1956 and the 1960 Olympics. They won the bronze medal in 1956 and the silver in 1960.

The team folded in 1960 when the Trois Rivieres Lions of the Eastern Professional Hockey League moved in to become the Kitchener-Waterloo Beavers.
