Renfrew Hockey Club / Renfrew Creamery Kings / Renfrew Millionaires 1909
Federal Amateur Hockey League / Federal Hockey League Champions 1909

Team Roster
Eddie Hogan, Jack McDonald, Ken Mallen, Ernie Liffiton, Larry Gilmour, Didier Pitre,
Bobby Rowe, Bert Lindsay
Trainer - Billy O'Brien

The team was based in Renfrew, Ontario.

The 1908 season saw the Federal Hockey League return with only three teams, all professional. Brockville Invincibles, unable to field a competitive team, hired the Renfrew Creamery Kings club to play as the Brockville entry. This was unacceptable to the Ottawa Victorias, which refused to play the Renfrew players, causing the league to suspend operations.

The final season, 1909, saw the Renfrew Creamery Kings become a full member of the league. Ottawa's new entry, officially called the Senators, was organized by players who resigned from the ECHA's (and former FAHL) Ottawa "Senators/Silver Seven" HC.

The league dissolved in 1909, with only Renfrew continuing professional play when the team was a co-founding franchise in December 1909 of the National Hockey Association, the precursor to the National Hockey League.
