CBR Brave finished third in the 2017 AIHL regular season behind Melbourne Ice and Perth Thunder, qualifying for the Goodall Cup finals series. CBR Brave beat Perth Thunder 6-2 in the semi-finals but lost the Goodall Cup Final to Melbourne Ice 1-4.
New Brave coach Rob Starke didn't have a doubt in his mind that the Brave youngster Toivonen would deliver when he took his place between the pipes in a shootout against the Melbourne Mustangs.
12 April 2014, The Brave took to the ice in their maiden AIHL match at home in front of around 1000 fans against the Newcastle North Stars.
Femmes de coeur
"All the pressure is on the goalies in those shootouts, and Aleksi stood up and made two very solid saves which enabled Geordie [Wudrick] and Jan Safar to finish it off for us," Starke said.
The Brave scored two shorthanded goals on the way to securing a 3-0 lead deep into the second period of the match before League MVP and AIHL record breaker, Geordie Wudrick, came to life and scored a third period hat trick that set up the North Stars comeback win as they scored a fourth and final goal to win the match 4-3. Over the Brave's first three seasons in the AIHL the club has built a healthy rivalry with the Newcastle North Stars. This rivalry intensified at the end of the 2015 AIHL season when the North Stars came from behind to beat the CBR Brave in the Goodall Cup semi-finals.
Webster body slammed Wudrick from behind, knocking him out cold and hospitalising the Brave player. The Ice secured a 10-9 victory in the first match after leading 7-2 before a third period rally by the Brave saw them score six unanswered goals to temporarily take the lead 8-7 before succumbing to the visitors late on. Wudrick missed a large amount of the 2016 AIHL season as a result. The inaction by the match referees incensed the CBR Brave team and fans and this carried through to the return double header weekend in Canberra in August. In amongst all the carnage there was nineteen goals scored in the first game and a further seven scored in the second game with two hard fought one goal victories being split between the two teams. 2016 saw a firm rivalry between the CBR Brave and Melbourne Ice emerge from an infamous incident involving Lliam Webster and Geordie Wudrick. A total of 252 penalty minutes were handed out during the two matches which also saw 6 players ejected, 5 players suspended, 4 separate fights and an all-out on ice melee between all the players. Brave DJ set the tone for the encounters with a rendition of The Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme) from Star Wars when the Melbourne Ice players walked out onto the ice.
It is very rare in the AIHL to see players switch teams so the move of Wudrick from Newcastle to Canberra made headlines. Newcastle North Stars head coach, Andrew Petrie, slammed the move by the Brave board to poach Wudrick weeks out from the new season, insisting the North Stars and Wudrick had a verbal agreement that he would return to the Hunter Valley.

Brave co-director, Warren Apps, responded to the news on the ACT Grandstand radio program on 666 ABC Canberra by further expressing the need for new investment due to the demand on the current facility now exceeding its capacity. Mr Rattenbury's reasons for his decision came from a feasibility study into the proposal ruling out the investment into a second ice rink for a city due to the population size of Canberra at this time. 16 August 2014, ACT Sports Minister, Shane Rattenbury, formally rejected a proposal to build a brand new ice rink attached to the new swimming complex planned for the Molonglo Valley in Canberra's south. Instead the minister proposed further review of what can be done to upgrade the current privately owned Phillip Ice Centre facility.
AIHL round one: CANBERRA BRAVE 4 (Geordie Wudrick 2, Stephen Blunden, Jan Safar goals) bt MELBOURNE MUSTANGS 2 (Maxime Langelier-Parent, Patrick O'Kane goals). CANBERRA BRAVE 4 (Dominic Jalbert, Mitch Henning, Brian Bales goals; Geordie Wudrick, Jan Safar shootout goals) bt MELBOURNE MUSTANGS 3.
The Brave didn't dominate like they did on their way to the Goodall Cup finals last season, but Starke expects it will take a few weeks for his side to find their groove.

9 February 2015, 2015 AIHL season draw changes, originally released 4 December 2014, affected the CBR Brave with an additional three games to be played in Canberra for the 2015 season after the Sydney Bears and Sydney Ice Dogs opted to play their home games against the Brave in Canberra instead of Sydney.
