New Brunswick Junior C Hockey League
The New Brunswick Junior C Hockey League was a Junior ice hockey league in New Brunswick, Canada, sanctioned by Hockey Canada. The winner of the playoffs competed in the Maritime-Hockey North Junior C Championships.
Dating back to the late 1960s, the NBJHL was an elite Maritime league. The league would operate for almost 15 years before ultimately folding in 1983. With this, its successor, the NBJBHL, would replace the NBJHL and operate until 2003.
Left with a void of no formal junior hockey league within the province, the NBJHL was formed in 2003. This would become the primary Jr. league in New Brunswick, a Jr. C league.
While operating exclusively as a Junior C league, starting in 2007, the League was allowed to send its top team to the Don Johnson Cup as a Jr. B representative. In 2009, the league failed to send their champion. In the same year, a group of teams fled the NBJHL to form their own Jr. B league, the New Brunswick Junior B Hockey League, leaving the NBJHL with 6 teams and as a Jr. C League.
In the Summer of 2011, all but Hampton folded. With this, the league ceased operations, and the Hurricanes moved up to Junior B thus ending the tenure of the NBJHL.
