History[edit | edit source]
The team was founded in 2001 with the Superior International Junior Hockey League as the K&A First Nations Featherman Hawks. After one season the name was changed to the Golden Hawks.
In 2006, the team was bought and renamed the Thunder Bay Bearcats. The Bearcats moniker was a prominent team name in the region in the 1950s.
In 2008, the Bearcats absorbed the Thunder Bay Bulldogs to resurrect and improve the city's Thunder Bay Kings Midget AAA program.
In May 2009, the Bearcats did not attend the league's AGM and it soon came out that the team was disbanding. It is not known whether or not the leave is permanent.
