The club was one of founders of the Inter-provincial Professional League in 1910, which became the Maritime Professional Hockey League from 1911 until 1914. After the MPHL shut down, the club fielded a team again in the Halifax City League until 1925. In 1940, the Crescents name was resurrected in the HCHL league until 1946. From 1945 until 1948, a Crescents team was fielded in the Maritime Senior Hockey League.
