Oji Eagles

The Oji Eagles (王子イーグルス) have a long and successful history in Japanese hockey. The team was founded in 1925 by staff of the Oji Paper Tomakomai factory.
Oji means “prince” in Japanese.

The Eagles play out of Tomakomai city (苫小牧市) on the island of Hokkaido (北海道), which is Japan’s second largest and northernmost island.

Their home rink is the Hakucho Arena with a capacity of 4015. The arena was built in 1996.
The team won the Japan Ice Hockey League championship 13 times between 1966-2004 until the league was replaced by the Asia League.

The team has won the All Japan Ice Hockey Championship (全日本アイスホッケー選手権大会) 35 times, mostly recently in 2013.

Since joining the Asia League, the Eagles have played in finals four times and won the championship twice, the last being in 2011-12.

The Eagles (10/11-13/14) along with the Nippon Paper Cranes (03/04-06/07) are the only teams to have four consecutive first place finishes in the AL regular season.

The team has historically played a very defensive game, only allowing a hundred goals against twice in twelve Asia League seasons. (88.8 GA per season, the lowest among active teams.)
