Did you know that Renfrew, Ontario helped give birth to the NHL? Read more below... In the small timber town of Renfrew, Ontario, Canada, it all began with The Renfrew Millionaires (originally called the Renfrew Creamery Kings). The professional hockey team was created by Michael John O’Brien and his son, Ambrose, and attracted national attention to the town. After being rejected entry to the Canadian Hockey Association (CHA), the O’Briens created the National Hockey Association (NHA) in 1909. The NHA consisted of all-star teams like the Renfrew Millionaires, Cobalt Silver Kings, Haileybury Comets and Les Canadiens of Montreal. Within a month, the Montreal Wanderers joined to become the fifth team. With five top- notch teams on board, the NHA helped to form the foundation of today’s National Hockey League (NHL). Hockey fans everywhere owe their love of today’s game and the NHL to the hard work and dreams of Michael John and Ambrose O’Brien.
