The Ottawa Valley Lightning are a junior C ice hockey team in the National Capital Junior Hockey League of Hockey Eastern Ontario. As of the 2018–19 season, the team is inactive.

History

The Maxville Mustangs were founded in 1998. In 2010, the Mustangs were sold to investors in Papineauville, Quebec, and became the Vikings. In 2016, the Vikings won their second consecutive NCJHL championship with a seventh game victory over the Embrun Panthers for the second consecutive year.[1] After the 2016–17 season, the team announced that they were moving to St-André-Avellin, Quebec and play out of that local arena. As part of the relocation, the team also changed their name to Papineau Vikings. In 2018, the Vikings won their third championship in four years by defeating the North Dundas Rockets in seven games.[2]

The franchise was sold in May 2018 and planned to relocated to Stittsville, Ontario, and rebranded as the Valley Golden Kings. However, they subsequently announced the team would be the Ottawa Valley Lightning and but did not name a home location. On 25 July 2018, the NCJHL announced the franchise would sit out the 2018–19 season entirely.
