BC Hockey 100 Great Moments: 1986 Penticton Knights
Wednesday, January 16, 2019

Penticton has a great hockey history, from the 1955 World Champion Vees, to the 2012 RBC Cup Vees, but the Penticton Knights of the mid 1980’s were also a very dominant Junior A club. 

In the 1984-1985 season, the Knights made it to the Centennial Cup for the first time in franchise history.  The Knights finished runner-up that year, beaten by the Orillia Travelways 4-2 in the championship game.  The Knights came back and made the National Championship once again the following year, this time hosted in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia.  The Knights defeated the Cole Harbour Colts 7-4, becoming the first Junior A team from British Columbia to win a National Championship.  The Knights started a trend, the Richmond Sockeyes won the Centennial Cup the next year. 

British Columbia now owns the most Junior A national titles, winning thirteen (13) between the Centennial Cup and Royal Bank Cup, after the trophy was renamed in 1996.
