The Powell River Kings joined the BC Junior Hockey League (BCJHL) for the start of the 1988-89 Season with the name the “Paper Kings”, after the Delta Flyers franchise was purchased and relocated to the Sunshine Coast. The dropped “Paper” from their name for the start of the 1998-99 Season and have been known as the “Kings” ever since.

The colours of the team were also changed around the same time, with the Montreal Canadiens inspired red and white replaced with the current green and yellow.

The team has been home to several past and current NHL players including Robb Gordon, Brad Bombardir, Daniel Carr and many more. The team has also had a handful of players drafted to the NHL including goaltenders Sean Maguire and Jamie Phillips in 2012.

The Kings have been crowned Coastal Conference Champions 7 times throughout their history, including an unprecedented run of four straight trips to the league final between 2009 and 2012. The team has also made the BCHL Playoffs every year since 2001.
