A new version of the Newfoundland West Coast Senior Hockey League was established in early 2017. A new version of the Jets were included in the league. The league was originally planning a fall 2017 start, but; all obstacles were overcome and an attempt at a short season was started in March of 2017 and each team secured ice time for three home games in a abbreviated 6 game season with a single game championship.
The Jets hockey club was founded as the Stephenville Monarchs in 1975. The Monarchs joined the Newfoundland Senior Hockey League (NSHL) for the 1975-76 season. The team changed their name before following season to the Stephenville Jets
Hector Caines was the first coach for the Monarchs who debuted in Corner Brook on November 15. 1975 losing 8-4 to the hometown Royals. The club made their debut at their home rink, the Stephenville Gardens, on November 16. At the end of their inaugural season, the Monarchs finished in last place with 8 points. Beginning with the 1982-83 season, the Jets won four straight Evening Telegram Trophies for finishing first place in the regular season.
The Jets were back-to-back winners of the Herder Memorial Trophy in 1983 and 1984 as all-Newfoundland senior hockey champions.
The Stephenville Jets were deep in debt after the 1988-89 season and folded prior to the next season.
