The Arnprior Packers


Contact Bill Griese


Founded by Bob McLellan, Stan Reid, and Frank Smith in the late 1950's, the Packers were originally known as the Arnprior Juniors before later being named the Kenwood Rams after the Clubs first major sponsor Kenwood Mills.

The Packers name came into existence in November of 1965 when they were playing in the Central Junior Hockey League.  Two years later the Packers would merge into the Ottawa Valley Junior Hockey League, where they have been ever since.

The league has since been re-named the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League (EOJHL), but the Packers are still sporting the Green, White and Gold to this day, representing the town of Arnprior with pride. 

The Packers have won 4 Valley Division Titles with the first coming in 1980, followed by 1995, 1998, and 2012.  Also on the Packers list of accomplishments are 3 Boxing Day Championships where they won tournaments in 1981, 1997, and the final tournament ever in 2009.  The Boxing Day Tournament has since been replaced by the Fall Classic where all 22 EOJHL member clubs compete in a weekend showcase tournament. 

The Arnprior Packers pride themselves in being one of the most successful Junior B hockey teams in the league and continue to support the community and those who live and work there.
