The New Brunswick Junior B Hockey League (NBJBHL) was a Canadian Junior ice hockey league in the Province of New Brunswick. The NBJBHL was a member of Hockey New Brunswick and competed for the Don Johnson Cup at the interprovincial level. The league was founded in 2009.  The league was renamed the New Brunswick Junior Hockey League in 2012 as a result of it becoming a mixed Junior B and Junior C level league


In 2003, the original New Brunswick Junior B Hockey League folded. The league was formed in the 1980s from the five regional Jr. B leagues of New Brunswick when the New Brunswick Junior Hockey League folded in 1983.

The void, in 2003, was filled by the New Brunswick Junior C Hockey League. In 2007-08, the league attempted to service both Jr. B and Jr. C needs in the province. A year later, the league elected to only send a Jr. C champion to interprovincial play, bailing on Jr. B.

In the summer of 2009, five of the top teams of the NBJCHL broke away formed their own Jr. B league, the NBJBHL. These teams were the Moncton Vito's, Grand Lake Moose Wild, Port City Ice Dawgs, Tri-County River Cats, and Black's Harbour Silver Kings.

Ironicly, as a result of the formation of the Junior B league, the Junior C league disbanded after the 2010-11 season and the Hampton Hurricanes jumped to Junior B from Junior C.  The league was reorganized as a mixed level Junior B and Junior C league for the 2012-13 season and was renamed the New Brunswick Junior Hockey League.
