The EOSHL became a sanctioned Senior "A" league in 2003. In 2005, the league was promoted to Senior "AAA" to compete against Major League Hockey and have a chance to win the Allan Cup. In 2006, the league dropped from 6 to 4 teams.

The team started the season as the Cooks Bay Canucks, but soon dropped it for the Simcoe County Canucks.
