The Kanata Valley Lasers began play in the Central Junior Hockey League in 1987-88 when an expansion franchise was granted to Kanata, Ontario, which is a suburb of Ottawa. During their first 15-years as the Valley Lasers:
Never missed the playoffs
Had the same head coach, Archie Mulligan
Won 2 Art Bogart Cup championships in 1992 and 1997
Won the Fred Page Cup in 1997
In May 2002, the Kanata Sports Club sold the Kanata Valley Lasers to Dynasty Flooring Inc. The new ownership refurbished the team, and re-named them the Kanata Stallions, and moved from the Jack Charron Arena to the Kanata Recreation Centre, which are located approximately 2 km away from each other. To date, the Stallions have yet to finish in the top 5 and make the CJHL finals. In fact, in the 2004 playoffs, the Stallions upset the Cumberland Grads in seven games to advance to the semi-finals, but lost to the Nepean Raiders in six games. It was the only time to date that the Stallions made it past the first round of the playoffs. The Stallions missed the playoffs multiple times in recent years.
Kanata named former NHL player Chris Valentine as head coach for 2008-09, but was fired in October after the Stallions slow start. He was replaced with Vince Millette. The Stallions broke a CJHL record recently with a 26-game losing streak, literally breaking the Cumberland Grads losing streak at 25 games at the start of the 1994-95 season.
To date, the Stallions have 7 alumni players playing for the Carleton Ravens of the CIS.
In April 2010, it was announced that the Kanata Stallions would be awarded the 2012 Fred Page Cup, which will be played at either their home rink Kanata Recreation Centre. In summer 2011, head coach Adam Dewan was relieved of his duties. Randy Pierce tookover the coaching helm, but was fired in February, leaving Corey Foster to replace him to finish the 2011-12 season. In March 2012, the Stallions missed the playoffs failing to win the last key games.
