Evolution

  • Prior to 1984: Curtis Hoover Juvenile B

  • 1984-1987: Colorfast Junior BB

  • 1987-1989: Strathcona Legion Junior B

  • 1990-Present: Edmonton Royals Junior B
In 1986, the Colorfast Junior BB team was renamed Strathcona Legion. We then entered the Edmonton Junior Hockey League where we remained until Joining the Capital Junior Hockey League. The team Royals was incorporated in 1989 after the loss of sponsorship from the Strathcona Legion. John Anderson,Jim Craig [still involved], and Willie Rolleman & Miles Palmer were instrumental in the formation of the Club.

The Royals evolved from the Juvenile BB team Curtis Hoover with name changes of Colorfast, Strathcona League, Dougs Place Royals and now Edmonton Royals


History

The Royals Hockey Club has been successful in many ways since its inception. The Team has won City Championships, CJHL League Championships, and Hockey Alberta Provincials. We have graduated a number of players to the U of A Golden Bears, ACAC Hockey, and University Hockey in the U.S. One of our former players, Cory Cross, played in the NHL for a number of teams, including The Edmonton Oilers.

Our greatest success, however, is the number of former athletes who are now coaches or administrators in the minor program throughout Alberta. Our original team members are now in their late 30's and it won't be long until we see their sons trying out for the club.

The Royals have every intention of continuing the program based out of our southwest community. We are proud members of the CJHL, by far the best Junior B League in Alberta.
