The Ottawa West Golden Knights are a Canadian Junior ice hockey team based in Ottawa, Ontario. They formerly played in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. Following the 2014-15 season, in an attempt to create a better player development model, the EOJHL and the CCHL set a new agreement that resulted in the league re-branding itself as the Central Canada Hockey League Tier 2 (CCHL2), reduced to 16 teams and two divisions. The Golden Knights are in the Martin Division.

History

From the 2001-02 season to the 2008-09 season, the Golden Knights won five league championships in eight seasons. Their greatest challenge in this period may have been the Westport Rideaus in the 2005-06 playoffs. The Rideaus had the Golden Knights pinned down and against the wall 3 games to 2 in the final series, but the Golden Knights battled back and took the last two nail-biters to win their fourth title. The Golden Knights had a banner year for the 2008-2009 season by winning the D. Arnold Carson trophy for the 6th time in the team's history and its 5th league championship in 8 years. The Knights also captured the 2008 Boxing Day Tournament title.

However, by 2012-2013 the team was in a rebuild year after losing 3 Top defensemen in Neil Clarke, Mitch Fournier and Sebastien Dubus, goaltender Jacob Blair who moved on to the Ottawa 67's, and a top forward in Ben Minkus.
