The Kitchener Dutchmen are a Canadian junior ice hockey team based in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. They play in the Mid-Western division of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League.

HistoryEdit

Although dating back until at least 1956, the Greenshirts changed their name to the "Ranger B's" in 1969 to better reflect their relationship with their parent club, the Kitchener Rangers. The team started in the Central Junior B league, but as part of the 1971 geographic realignment, moved to the Western Junior B league. In 1973, the team joined the "Southwestern Junior "B" Hockey League", which became the "Waterloo-Wellington Junior "B" Hockey League" and then the Midwestern "B" in 1977. The team is a long-standing member of the league and remains there to this day as the Kitchener Dutchmen.

An original charter member team, in 1992 this franchise became the first team in Mid-Western "B" history, other than the Waterloo Siskins and the Stratford Cullitons, to win the league and the Sutherland Cup. They won a second consecutive league title in 1993, but failed to come away with another Ontario Hockey Association title. The team has not missed the playoffs since 1979, a streak only surpassed by the Siskins and Cullitons. The Dutchmen are a long time farm team for the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League.
