The Edinburgh Capitals (SNL) played in the Scottish National League which is considered a third tier league in the United Kingdom equivalent to the equivalent to the NIHL. Certain players also ice for or have iced for their Elite League counterparts.

The Captain for the 2017-18 season was Joel Gautschi. His assistants were the two veterans, Ross Hay and Gary Hughes.

The team folded in 2018 when the Elite League Capitals did.
