Team history[edit]Edit

The Toronto Aeros played in the CWHL since its formation in 2007. This team established in 1998 as the Beatrice Aeros (named after their sponsor, Beatrice Foods Canada). The Aeros played in the National Women's Hockey League. On March 22, 1998, Dana Antal scored at 5:31 of a 10 minute overtime period on a pass from Jennifer Botterill as Team Alberta (represented by the Calgary Oval X-Treme) defeated Team Ontario (represented by the Beatrice Aeros) by a 3-2 mark to win the Esso Nationals.[1]

During the 1999-2000 NWHL season, the Beatrice Aeros played the Sainte-Julie Pantheres in the championship game. In the second game of the final, Cherie Piper scored the game-winning goal with 9:06 left to play in the first period, and Lauren Goldstein earned the shutout for the Aeros.[2] With the 1-0 win, Beatrice earned the championship based on goal differential.

The team changed its name in 2003 to become the Toronto Aeros. In 2006-07 they relocated to Mississauga and changed their name to the Mississauga Aeros. They played their home games at the Beatrice Ice Gardens at York University in Toronto. In CWHL, the team was called the Mississauga Chiefs for 2 seasons (2007–08 and 2008-2009). The team adapted the name Toronto Furies after the 2011 Clarkson Cup.
