History[edit | edit source]
The Chilliwack Chiefs were first formed in 1970 as a member of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League. The club was founded as a farm team for the WHL's Estevan Bruins. After a 1975-76 season which saw the Bruins finish last in BCJHL, the team joined the newly formed Pacific Coast Junior Hockey League. However, after an uneven performance while in the PCJHL, including a 1977-78 season which saw the Bruins win just one of their 48 regular season games, the team returned to the BCJHL for the 1978-79 season as the Colts. After two seasons, the Colts folded midway through the 1980-81 campaign with just one victory in 35 games, and the Chilliwack didn't see Junior "A" hockey again until the Richmond Sockeyes relocated to the city after the 1989-90 season.
