We’ve partnered up!
We are excited to introduce the Innovation Cluster’s member – the newest Entrepreneur Sponsor this year to The Cube: our business incubator for technology start-ups and early-stage companies: Peterborough Petes!
The Petes originally known as the Kitchener Green Shirts were officially born in Peterborough on October 1st, 1956 as a farm team for the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens. The team we now know and love skating around the Peterborough Memorial Centre in their maroon and white weren’t established until 1974.
Throughout team history, Peterborough has enjoyed much success, which has helped to put Peterborough and the Petes on the map throughout the hockey world and paved the way for many legends such as; Zack Kassian, Zach Bogosian, Eric & Jordan Staal, Chris Pronger, Steve Yzerman, Bob Gainey, Mike Ricci, and Tie Domi to name a few. Peterborough has produced more National Hockey League players (150+) than any other junior team in the world.
The Peterborough Petes now enter their 61st OHL season as the oldest operating franchise. As the Petes win game after game, the Peterborough Memorial Centre (PMC) becomes one of the most exciting, loudest, and supportive crowds which can be up to 4,000+ fans.
