At the CCAA National Hockey Championships, the Golden Shield were hoping to join the likes of the 1976-77 St. Clair College Saints from Windsor, Ontario and the 1984-85 NAIT Ooks from Edmonton, Alberta who did not lose a game in the regular season and post season en route to a national title. The round robin portion of the event opened with Cambrian topping the host Conestoga College Condors 3-1. The SAIT Trojans from Calgary, Alberta then recorded with a 6-1 victory over Conestoga. With the championship final match set, Cambrian dropped a 5-2 decision to SAIT to close out the round robin before edging the Trojans 3-2 in the championship final.
In four appearances at nationals, Cambrian brought home one gold medal, two silver medals, and one bronze medal.
