History[edit | edit source]

The Moncton Hawks were New Brunswick Junior Hockey League Junior A champions in 1981, 1982, and 1983.

In 1983, the Moncton Hawks abandoned the faltering New Brunswick Junior Hockey League and joined the Metro Valley Junior Hockey League which until then was a Nova Scotia-based league.

In the summer of 2008, the Moncton Beavers moved to neighbouring Dieppe and became the Commandos. The Commandos hosted the 2009 Fred Page Cup.

The Commandos lost their first game, since moving to Dieppe, on September 13, 2008 2-1 to the Yarmouth Mariners.

On November 2, 2016 the league announced they approved the relocation of the Dieppe Commandos to Edmundston, New Brunswick for the 2017-18 season. The team moved into the Jean-Daigle Centre which was under construction at the time. The facility will seat 2,400 and is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017.
