When the league became the Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League in 1968, the Barons came with them and changed their name in 1970 to the Elgins. The Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League was a Tier II Junior A ice hockey that lasted from the late 1960s until 1976 in Southern Ontario, Canada. …

The Elgins folded in 1973, but resurrected in as the Colonels the next season in the Central Junior C Hockey League. In 1976, the team was moved up to the shortlived “Southwestern Ontario Junior “B” Hockey League”. When the Southwestern died, the Colonels jumped to the new “Western League” and changed their name to the Pests in 1980. As expected, the Pests was considered a horrible name and was changed to the Stars in 1984. The Stars are a consistent and strong team in the Western Ontario Jr B Hockey League, and compete to this day.
