The Wolverines were founded on May 2, 2012, through the relocation of the St. Albert Steel from St. Albert. Their inaugural 2012–13 season in Whitecourt is being played out of the Scott Safety Centre, which has a seating capacity of 1,058. Scott Safety Supply Services Ltd. is the sponsor of the arena and a corporate sponsor of the team.
The Whitecourt Wolverines junior "A" franchise was originally established in 1976 as the Fort Saskatchewan Traders, with 1976–77 being their inaugural season. The Traders won their first AJHL championship in 1978–79, their third year in the league. After winning the championship, the team then defeated the Richmond Sockeyes of the BCHL in five games at the Doyle Cup, before falling to the Prince Albert Raiders in six games at the Abbott Cup, the eventual national champions at the 1979 Centennial Cup. The Traders proceeded to win their second league championship in 1983–84.
Due in part to financial difficulties and low attendance, the AJHL approved a deal on March 15, 2007, to relocate the Traders to St. Albert for the 2007–08 season, ending the Traders' 31-year run in Fort Saskatchewan. The team was renamed the St. Albert Steel, and became the second team to represent the City of St. Albert, replacing the St. Albert Saints who left for Spruce Grove in 2004.
After five years in St. Albert, it was announced on March 29, 2012, that the team applied to relocate to Whitecourt for the 2012–13 season. On May 2, 2012, the AJHL announced it approved the request to relocate the team to Whitecourt, where the team would remain in the AJHL's North Division and be named the Whitecourt Wolverines.
The twice relocated franchise took its current team name from Whitecourt's predecessor junior "B" Whitecourt Wolverines of the North West Junior Hockey League (NWJHL). After five years in the NWJHL, four league championships, a provincial title, and a bronze medal at the Keystone Cup, this junior "B" predecessor team folded to make way for the relocated junior "A" Wolverines.
 Inaugural season
The Whitecourt Wolverines began their inaugural season on a three-game road trip. The team dropped their opening game against the Canmore Eagles on September 14, 2012 by a score of 4–2, in which Colten Meaver scored the first goal in the frachise's history as the Whitecourt Wolverines. The team won its first game on September 15 in overtime by a score of 4–3 over the Okotoks Oilers, in which Ryan Berlin recorded the Wolverines' first hat trick and game-winning goal. The AJHL honoured Berlin as the league's first player of the week for the 2012–13 season after he earned five goals and two assists over the team's opening three games.
The team's inaugural home opener was held on September 21 against the Spruce Grove Saints – the first regular season game between the two teams that relocated from St. Albert. The Saints defeated the Wolverines 4–3 in overtime in front of 1,283 attendees at Scott Safety Centre. Goaltender Tanner Kovacs recorded the Wolverines' first shutout on September 27 in a 3–0 victory over the Camrose Kodiaks at the league's annual AJHL showcase. The team won its first home game at Scott Safety Centre on October 2 against the Drayton Valley Thunder by a score of 3–1. The victory was the first of four consecutive wins in a six-day span during the first week of October, after which the Wolverines received an honourable mention in the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) weekly top 20 rankings on October 8.
The Wolverines extended its winning streak to five games on October 12 with a 8–2 victory over the Sherwood Park Crusaders in which Jerome Raymond scored four goals. The team then proceeded to lose four of its next five games all in overtime. Despite the four overtime losses, the team earned 16 of a total possible 20 points in a 10-game span.
The team's greatest offensive outburst and margin of victory of the season was a 12–0 win over the Lloydminster Bobcats on October 27 giving them sole possession of first place in the North Division after 19 games and their first appearance in the CJHL weekly top 20 rankings taking the 14th spot. The team then proceeded to lose four straight games over the first two weekends of November, including one loss in overtime and one loss in a shootout.

The Wolverines are engaged in two programs within the community under a "Team for Success" project where players mentor young students on reading and writing, and boys through issues experienced at the junior high level. During their inaugural season, the team hosted a Hockey Hall of Fame exhibit that featured the Stanley Cup. The proceeds from the event, sponsored by Scott Safety, benefitted the Whitecourt Minor Hockey Association and the Whitecourt Girl Guides.
