HistoryEdit

In 1964 a group headed by Tiger Mackie got together to form a junior hockey club in Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, in an attempt to create a tenant for the new Port Hawkesbury Arena, which began construction in 1963. The team was dubbed the Strait Pirates, and were excepted into the Cape Breton Junior Hockey League (CBJHL) the following year.

For the 1966-67 season the Pirates actively recruited players from across Atlantic Canada and Quebec. The increased strength of the team led to them being kicked out of the CBJHL due to other teams being unable to compete.[2]

In 1992 the Northcumberland Junior B Hockey League folded and the Pirates joined the Mainland Junior B Hockey League, who subsequently changed their name to the Nova Scotia Junior B Hockey League (NSJHL).[3]

In 1998 the Pirates officially shortened their name from the Port Hawkesbury Strait Pirates to just simply the Strait Pirates.
