HistoryEdit

Previous to Junior A team coming to Port Hope, and subsequently leaving it, the town has operated a series of Junior C teams by the name Port Hope Panthers.

Port Hope era (1996-2009)Edit

In 1996, the Port Hope Buzzards were founded in the Metro Junior A Hockey League. The league only lasted until 1998, when the Metro was absorbed by the larger and healthier Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League.

In November 2005, coach Bret Meyers was suspended for one season and the team was fined $4000 after the Ontario Hockey Association investigated the Predators over allegations of hazing and irresponsible public behaviour by the players of the team.[1] In January 2006, the Predators were fined $1000 and their director of operations Tim Clayden was suspended for one month for signing a player to a Junior C card without his knowledge.[2] In June 2007, the Ontario Hockey Association found Clayden guity of tampering with players from the Cobourg Cougars' roster. He was suspended for one year and the team was fined $5000.[3] In September 2007, Port Hope coach Brian Drumm was suspended for 20 games for striking a Lindsay Muskies player in the face during a game. The team was also fined $3500.[4]

The 2006-07 season, much like the last two seasons, has shown the Predators as an upper echelon team in the 35-team Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League. Threatening their third straight winning season, the Predators have the potential to be Dark Horse Champions when they playoffs commence.

Trenton era (2009-present)Edit

In early 2009, the Trenton Hercs announced that they were folding mid-season and leaving the Ontario Junior Hockey League.[5] In March, rumblings of team moving into the Trenton market came afloat. It turned out to be the Port Hope Predators.[6][7] According to OJHL commissioner Bob Hooper: “The league never really wanted a team in Port Hope in the first place.” [8] In the 2008-09 season, Port Hope was second in league attendance, while Trenton was ninth.[9]
