They won the Herder Memorial Trophy, emblematic of the Newfoundland senior hockey championship, in 1949-50, 1950-51, 1951-52, 1953-54, and 1962-63.
The team was devastated by the death of star player George Pike along with four others in a crash in September of 1951. On March 22, 1959 another plane carrying five members of the team was involved in a plane crash on the way back home from a game in Deer Lake. No one on the plane was killed. The only serious injury was to team manager Gus Soper who was the team's manager. The arena in town Buchans Arena II, of which he was also the manager, would later be renamed the T.A. Soper Memorial Stadium in his honour.
There was also a junior team by the same name that played in the Newfoundland Junior A Hockey League during the 1970's.
