Junior hockey began in Perth in the late 1920s with the creation of the Perth Juniors. During the 1937-38 season the Juniors began to use the nickname Blue Wings. The original incarnation of the Perth Juniors/Blue Wings competed in the Rideau League, the Lanark County Junior Hockey League, the Upper Ottawa Valley Junior Hockey League, the Junior Big Four and the Ottawa City Junior Hockey League. During the latter part of the 1930s, the Wings were one of the top teams in the Ottawa and District Amateur Hockey Association. In 1937-38, the Blue Wings won the Ottawa and District championship which placed them in the playdowns for the Memorial Cup. The Blue Wings subsequently defeated the Halifax Canadians and the Verdun Maple Leafs before meeting the Oshawa Generals for the Eastern Canada championship for a berth in the Memorial Cup championship. The Generals defeated the Blue Wings in two games.

The Blue Wings folded following the 1939-40 season but were resurrected in the early 1950s.

The Perth Blue Wings are currently members of the Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey League (EOJBHL).

Championship SeasonsEdit


Following the 2014–15 season, in an effort to have an improved player development model, the Central Canada Hockey League added the EOJHL under their umbrella. The EOJHL was reduced in number of teams, and renamed the Central Canada Hockey League Tier 2 (CCHL2). The league also went from 4 divisions to 2 divisions and the Blue Wings were assigned to th Richardson Division.
