The North Bay Centennials were a junior ice hockey team in the Ontario Hockey League, who played from 1982–2002. In 1994, North Bay was on top of the league, winning the Hamilton Spectator Trophy. They entered the playoffs as the #1 ranked junior team in Canada. The Centennials defeated the Detroit Junior Red Wings in seven games to capture the OHL Championship.  With profits declining and combined with an aging facility, the team became unprofitable and moved to Saginaw in 2002. OHL hockey returned to the bay 2013-14 with owner Scott Abott deciding to keep the current Battalion Name and Jerseys  The North Bay Centennials logo from 1982 to 1999 used the Centennials name and four wheels to form the shape of a locomotive engine. Home jerseys were a beautiful white with black and gold trim. Away jerseys were stunning with black with white and gold trim. This team brought many memories to this community. Many people across the city prefer the Centennials brand compared the current Battalion Jersey/Logo Combination. The rights to the Centennials logo are currently locally owned.
