2006-07 River Rats Season

This season would prove to be disastrous for the River Rats, as they finished the regular season with a 0-24-0 record, last place in the 18 team WOAA. Georgian Bay did have a victory in mid-December, a 4-3 win over the Durham Thundercats, however they were stripped of the win due to playing with illegal players.

2007-08 River Rats Season

After dropping their first game of the season, the River Rats would earn their first victory in nearly 2 years when Georgian Bay would defeat the expansion team Shallow Lake Crushers 7-5, ending their long losing streak. Wins would be few and far between for the River Rats all season long, as they finished with a 4-22-0 record, however, the Georgian Bay would finish in 7th place, and earn a spot in the "A" playoffs.

The River Rats opponent in the quarter-finals was the Milverton Four Wheel Drives, and Georgian Bay quickly found themselves down 2 games to none after Milverton won both the games on their home ice by scores of 13-2 and 9-3. The series moved to Georgian Bay for the next 2 games, but it was Milverton continue to win by blowout scores, winning both games 3 and 4 by a 10-4 score, eliminating the River Rats from the playoffs.

In June 2008, the Georgian Bay River Rats announced that they were moving from Thornbury, Ontario to Angus, Ontario and were renamed the Nottawasaga River Rats.
