The Miramichi Timberwolves are a Junior "A" hockey team based out of Miramichi, New Brunswick. They play in the Maritime Junior A Hockey League. The team was founded in 2000 and plays their home games at the Miramichi Civic Centre.
History[edit | edit source]
The Miramichi Timberwolves joined the Maritime Junior A Hockey League in 2000 and would not enjoy regular season success for three seasons. After the third season they acquired former NHLer Bill Riley as head coach, enjoying immediate success. This success saw them reach third overall in the league and head to their first post season.
The first playoff series ever for the Timberwolves would see them matched up against the Charlottetown Abbies. The "T-wolves", (as they are known to fans) would go on in that series to sweep the Abbies four games to none. The Timberwolves would go on to the division finals but would lose to the Campbellton Tigers in six games.
The Timberwolves have never won a Maritime Junior A Championship and have never played in a Kent Cup final. The Timberwolves have reached the division finals three times. Playoff disappointments have pushed the Timberwolves to do better in the regular season where in 2007/08 they put together their best to date. Finishing with 42 wins and 87 points good for first in the Meek division, the third time they had won the division in five years.
After another playoff disappointment behind them the T-Wolves started the 2008-2009 season looking to take the next step and win the Kent Cup. They finished second in the Meek Division, five points behind first place Summerside and just one point ahead of third place Woodstock. In the first round the T-Wolves and the Slammers showed why they were so close in the standings. The series went seven games, the first seven game series that the Timberwolves had ever been a part of in their nine years in the league. The T-Wolves came out on top winning the deciding game 3-2 thanks to Andrew White, who scored all three of the Timberwolves goals. Miramichi would move on to face Summerside in the division final. Summerside was riding high having just swept the Dieppe Commandos. Summerside would sweep the series and go on to win the Kent Cup making it the second straight season that the Timberwolves were beat in the Meek Division final ( the year before they were beat by the Woodstock Slammers in six games.)
