About the Carleton Place Jr A Canadians

The Carleton Place Canadians are a local junior hockey franchise that operates in the CCHL. They have been in existence since 2009 after transitioning from the Jr B Legion Kings into the CCHL as the Canadians. The Canadians have had great success moving players on to post-secondary in the NCAA as well as USports ranks, and have had four NHL draft picks come from their organization.

“As a former hockey player myself, I recognize the importance and value of athletic therapy to be at your best.
