Peterborough Petes TicketsThe Peterborough Petes got their start as a franchise back in 1956. They're the oldest continually operating team in the Ontario Hockey League. Originally, the Petes team was affiliated with the Montreal Canadiens as a developmental team. For a long time, they also wore the same colors. It wasn't until the mid-1970s that the Petes had adopted their current logo and signature maroon jerseys. The Petes have a reputation for success and have only missed the playoffs eight times in franchise history. Over the past 60 years, the Petes have won the OHL championship nine times. They've also claimed one Memorial Cup as champions of the CHL. In addition to winning big, Peterborough is known as one of the best places for young players to develop.
