HistoryEdit


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.[2][3]  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.[4]

The Chiefs were eliminated in the Chinook Hockey League's semi-final by the Innisfail Eagles 4-games-to-1.[5]
