HistoryEdit

The Truro Bearcats were a senior team.

They played in various leagues from 1924-25 through 1954-55. Only in 1944-45 did they not play because of World War II.

The Bearcats won the Maritimes Senior Championship six times - 1924-25, 1925-26, 1927-28, 1929-30, 1930-31, and 1943-44.

The Maritimes Amateur Hockey Association did not join the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association until 1927, so it was only after that date that their champions could play in the Allan Cup playoffs. The Bearcats did in 1928,1930, 1931, and 1944. They never won the Eastern Canada championship.

Modern HistoryEdit

In 1998, the Truro Bearcats became only the second team from Nova Scotia to win the Allan Cup.

The Bearcats started off the 1997-98 season by announcing that the team would cease operation to help make away for the upstart Truro Bearcats Junior "A" team after twelve years of operation. For their final year, the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association awarded them the right to host the 1998 Allan Cup.

In the first game of the Allan Cup, the Bearcats beat the Powell River Regals 5-1. In their second game, they tied the Ile des Chenes North Stars 1-1. They closed out the round robin with a 5-3 win over the London Admirals. The victory allowed them to finish first in the round robin and advance directly to the Allan Cup final. In front of a hometown crowd, the Bearcats again faced London, beating them soundly 6-1 to win their only ever Allan Cup. This would be the last game ever played by the Bearcats.
