Windsor Spitfires’ 1945 era was a decade of success, the team featured four of the players which were later included in Hockey Hall of Fame, and they reached finals of the league two times. The club was then dissolved and remade during 70s, and was granted entry as expansion franchise too. The club came under the ownership of Peter Karmanos in 1984. The new management had the game play thoroughly planned and the plan was carried out successfully, resulting in their winning of 1987-1988 J. Ross Robertson Cup. They also won 35 out of 36 games that they played and were the very first team to remain undefeated throughout the OHL playoffs.
In 2006, it was announced that the ownership and management of Windsor Spitfires is going to change completely. With history in OHL hockey, Warren Rychel, Bob Boughner and Peter Dobrich were included in the new management group with high expectations. The 2008-2009 seasons went very smooth with a total of 57 wins for the team with only ten losses. This was the best ever season for the team. For their overall great record, the franchise was awarded with the Hamilton Spectator Trophy.
In 2009 – 2010 season, Windsor Spitfires returned to the scene with another fifty wins with only twelve losses. Although it was a very impressive record, it wasn’t great enough to win them a second Hamilton Spectator Trophy. In 2010, six of Spitfires players took part in World Junior Ice Hockey Championship in Silver Medalist Canada and Gold Medalist Canada, thus continued Windsor Spitfires’ journey down the road of success.
Till date, Windsor Spitfires have won two Memorial Cups and their current head coach is Bob Boughner. At present, Windsor’s home ground is WFCU Centre (Windsor Family Credit Union). Since the club’s inauguration, it has switched a number of different logos and uniforms. Their existing logo is a fierce looking World War II aircraft in front of a blue and red shield. Their uniform is a vintage jersey of white, cream and blue color.
