The team was purchased in 2012 by Bernard Villeneuve and brought to Cornwall to play in the Cornwall Civic Complex.
Led by veterans Yves Sarault and Eric Meloche, Cornwall went 20-17-3 in its first LNAH season, finishing third overall in the regular season.
The LNAH grew to eight teams in 2013 and the River Kings compiled 16-20-4 record to finish seventh in the regular season.
Despite finishing 37 points behind the Eperviers, Cornwall took the regular season champions to the limit, eventually falling 4-3.
As stability finally arrived at the ownership level, the River Kings could never recover from a poor start and a decimated blueline due to injury.
The team was sold again, pending league approval, to Darren Madden in November 2014.
On December 4, 2014, Darren Madden withdrew his application to purchase the team.
Courcelles led the River Kings in goals (21) and points (34).
Defenceman Sasha Pokulok, the teams first ever draft pick in 2012, had 27 points in 32 games.
