History

When the Lethbridge Broncos returned to their original home of Swift Current following the 1985–86 season, hockey fans in Lethbridge did not have to wait long for a new team. After only one year out of the league, Lethbridge returned to the WHL in 1987–88 when the Calgary Wranglers moved south to become the Hurricanes.

The team's crowning achievement came in 1996–97, when the Hurricanes captured their first, and only, WHL Championship. The Hurricanes would finish as Memorial Cup runners-up when they lost the title game to the Hull Olympiques. That same year, they also won their division title (only done twice before, 1989–90 and 1990–91) and the regular season title. In the 2007-08 season, the Hurricanes won the eastern conference championship.[1]
