The Fredericton Canadiens, or the 'Baby Habs' were a professional ice hockey team in Fredericton, New Brunswick. The Canadiens played their home games at the Aitken Centre. They were a member of the American Hockey League from 1990 to 1999, and were a farm team of the Montreal Canadiens.

In 1995 the Canadiens played in the Calder Cup Finals, where they were swept in four games by the Albany River Rats.
