The Whitewater Kings are a Canadian junior ice hockey team from Cobden, Ontario. The Kings play in the Central Canada Hockey League Tier 2 of Hockey Eastern Ontario and Hockey Canada.

HistoryEdit

The franchise was formed in 1971 as the Cardinal Broncos from Cardinal, Ontario. In the early 1980s, future National Hockey League player Todd Gill started his junior hockey career with the Broncos.

In 1983, the Broncos moved to Grenville County, Ontario and formed the South Grenville Rangers. Finding themselves in the tight Rideau Division of the Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey League, the Rangers were never able to gain a division title. Very often, in the 2000s, the Rangers were locked out of a playoff berth by their division opponents. In 2005, the Rangers finished 1st in their division with 70 points just to bail out in the first round of the playoffs. In 2006, the Rangers finished 2nd in the Rideau Division with 66 points and made it to the divisional final only to lose.

In the Summer of 2013, the Rangers were renamed the Prescott Flyers.

For the 2015-16 season the EOJHL became affiliated with the Central Canada Hockey League with a goal to establish a more linear advancement for players. The EOJHL became the Central Canada Hockey League Tier 2 (CCHL2).

Prior to the 2017-18 season the team was purchased by their Central Canada Hockey League affiliate; the Pembroke Lumber Kings and were being relocated to Cobden where they were renamed the Whitewater Kings after the Whitewater Region in Renfrew County. The Flyers former home arena would be getting a team that was joining the National Capital Junior Hockey League, as the South Grenville Rangers
