The Maritime-Hockey North Junior C Championship are the Junior "C" ice hockey championships for the Maritime Junior "C" leagues and Hockey North's Team Nunavut of the Territory of Nunavut.

History[edit]

Official adapted by Hockey Canada in a summer meeting in 2002.

The first ever Maritime-North Championship was won by the Chebucto Canadians of the Nova Scotia Junior C Hockey League in the Spring of 2003. Chebucto defeated the Dieppe/Memramcook Voyageurs of the New Brunswick Junior C Hockey League 4-3 in triple overtime to seal the deal.

On April 14, 2012, the tenth anniversary of the tournament, Nunavut's Kivalliq Canucks defeated Prince Edward Island's Pownal Red Wings 3-1 to become the first Hockey North-based team in the tournament's history to make the final.[1] If Pownal had won the game, they would have become the first PEI team to ever play in the final as the finals have been dominated by Nova Scotia and New Brunswick all nine previous years. Kivalliq ended up losing the final 7-3 to Nova Scotia's Chester Clippers.

In 2015, the Baffin Blizzard defeated the Kivalliq Canucks in a best-of-3 series to get to the Atlantic Junior C's. Baffin is the first team from Nunavut since the 2009 Qikiqtani Elks to get past the Canucks to get to the tournament. The 2015 tournament in Sherwood, Prince Edward Island marked the first time in tournament history that neither team in the final represented New Brunswick or Nova Scotia. Baffin made the final by upsetting New Brunswick's Western Valley Panthers and PEI's Southside Lynx beat Nova Scotia's Truro Rhinos to make it happen. This would mark only the second time a Hockey North team made the final and the first time ever a PEI team made it. Baffin led 6-1 early in the second, only to have Southside battle back to within one goal. Baffin won the game 6-5 to win Nunavut's first Maritime-Hockey North junior hockey title. Baffin was led on offence by Lodie Ipeelie, defence by Nathan Gardner, and in net by Josh Tartak.
