The Trenton Golden Hawks were founded in 1968 as members of the Eastern Junior B Hockey League. They filled the gap left when the Trenton Flyers and the Trenton Apple Kings were in the league in the early 1960s.
In 1989, the team moved over to the Eastern Ontario Junior C Hockey League that season, in which they stayed until 1995. In 1995, the ownership of the team was granted the rights to a Junior "A" team, and renamed the Sting.
To fill the void in the Junior "C" loop, the Sting created a farm team known as the Brighton Buzz. After two seasons, the Buzz became the Colborne Blackhawks. Two seasons later, the team folded.
The Sting were sold to a private group and changed their name to the Quinte West Pack. After the name change, the Pack played the franchises' worst season since 1996-97. On April 10, 2008, the franchise was renamed the Trenton Hercs.
Effective noon January 8, 2009, the Trenton Hercs folded for the remainder of the 2008-09 season. After 37 games, the Hercs record was 14 wins, 20 losses, and 3 overtime losses. It was confirmed shortly after that the franchise is officially defunct.
