The Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs also previously known as the Fort Hotel Chiefs, were a senior AAA-level ice hockey team based in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada. They had competed within the Chinook Hockey League since the 2003-04 season. The team was coached by Levi Lypka and Scott Chartrand.
The team announced in a Twitter release that they ceased operations on October 31, 2018.
The Chiefs joined the Senior AA North Central Hockey League in the spring of 2019 and commenced play in the 2019-2020 season.
The 2005-06 season was the Chiefs most successful as they posted an 18-3-3 regular season record, and defeated both the Bentley Generals and Stony Plain Eagles to win the provincial title and a berth in the 2006 Allan Cup. At the Allan Cup tournament, they advanced past the quarter-finals with a 5-2 win over the Weyburn Devils, before losing the semi-finals match to the Whitby Dunlops by a score of 4-0.
