The Haliburton County Huskies are a Junior "A" ice hockey team from Whitby, Ontario, Canada. They are a part of the Ontario Junior Hockey League.

History[]

This franchise was founded in 1965 as the Oshawa Crushmen, and were initially a member of the Eastern Junior B Hockey League. In 1972, the Crushmen jumped to the Metro Junior B Hockey League and were renamed the Legionaires.

In the late 1970s, the Legionaires were coached by future National Hockey League coach "Iron" Mike Keenan. Keenan's star player during this time was a young Dale Hawerchuk.

At the end of the 2005-06 season, the Oshawa Legionaires were bought out by NHLers Keith Primeau, Wayne Primeau, as well as business man Peter Tosh. Keith had recently retired due to injury and created his own equipment line known as "Fury", based out of Oshawa. In turn, the Primeaus bought the local team and named them to reflect the name of his company.

In 2008, the Fury relocated to Whitby, Ontario, and the Iroquois Park Sports Centre.

On May 5, 2021 the team was approved to relocate to the renovated S.G. Nesbitt Memorial Arena in Minden, Ontario and were renamed the Haliburton County Huskies.
