The Clarenville Caribous are a senior ice hockey team based in Clarenville, Newfoundland and Labrador as part of the Newfoundland Senior Hockey League. The Caribous are two-time winning Herder Memorial Trophy Newfoundland and Labrador Senior Hockey Champions and 2011 Allan Cup National Senior "AAA" Hockey Champions.[1]



The Caribous broke into the WCSHL in 2006-2007, ending the season in last place with 18 points. However, in the very next season in 2007-2008 they shot past the other three teams, ending the season in first place with 30 points. They also went on to beat the Corner Brook Royals in the first round of the playoffs, only to be defeated by the Deer Lake Red Wings in the next. A very big improvement for one year.

The following season proved to be an even bigger improvement for the team. In the club's third year in the League, the 2008-2009 season, the team went to the playoffs to win against the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts, and got revenge on the Deer Lake Red Wings, defeating them in the next round. The Caribous went on to play the Conception Bay North CeeBee Stars in the final, and won the series 4-1. Clarenville won the Herder Memorial Trophy for the first time in club history.[2]

In the Summer of 2009, the Caribous applied for Sr. AAA status to compete in future Allan Cup National Championship events.[3] After winning the 2010 WCSHL Championship, the Caribous took home their second straight Herder Memorial Trophy be beating CBN for the second year in a row, 4-1.[4] The Caribous were winless (0-3) at the 2010 Allan Cup in Fort St. John, British Columbia.[5]

In 2010-11, the Caribous went 14-10-0-0 for second place in the WCSHL. They were eliminated in the league semi-final by Deer Lake to end their hopes for a third straight league title and Herder Trophy. Again registered with Hockey Canada as Senior AAA[6], the Caribous traveled west to Kenora, Ontario to compete at the 2011 Allan Cup. The Caribous went undefeated (4-0), beating Alberta's Bentley Generals 5-3[7] in the final to win their first and Newfoundland and Labrador's second ever Allan Cup.[8]
