The Canberra Knights were a semi-professional Australian ice hockey club from Canberra that was founded in 1981 and played in the Australian Ice Hockey League until 2013 .


In 1981, the Canberra Knights were founded by former ice hockey players after the Phillip Swimming & Ice Skating Center opened a year earlier. The Canberra Knights were one of the founding members of the New South Wales Superleague in 1982, in which they played intermittently until they were dissolved. The team from the capital joined the East Coast Super League in 1994, which they won for the first and only time in 1998.

Together with the Sydney Bears and Adelaide Avalanche , the Knights founded the Australian Ice Hockey League in 2000 . Since the league expansion in 2002, the Knights ended the season mostly as one of the worst teams in the table. After the 2013 season, the Knights stopped playing for financial reasons and were replaced in 2014 by CBR Brave from the suburb of Phillip .


The Canberra Knights' home games were played at the Phillip Swimming & Ice Skating Center in Canberra .
