Incident vs. Aces[edit | edit source]
In March 2013, in the final game of the season, a brawl erupted when, as handshakes were taking place, three players from the Sherwood Falcons crossed centre ice and charged the Aces' players. The Aces had just won the game to advance to the league final. Eight players and two coaches were suspended beginning the next season.
The team was renamed from the Sherwood Falcons on September 24, 2015 in tribute to the team that was a national finalist at the 1979 Centennial Cup.
