New Brunswick will gain another Maritime Junior Hockey League team next season.

The South Shore Lumberjacks are moving from Bridgewater, N.S., to Bouctouche.

Members of the league’s board of governors unanimously approved the move during a recent meeting.

“The Maritime Junior Hockey League would like to extend its thanks to Bridgewater and the surrounding area for their support of the team over the years, including their many fans,” league president Troy Dumville said in a statement.

The franchise began as the Halifax Wolverines nearly two decades ago in 2004-05.

It moved ahead of the 2008-09 season and was renamed the Bridgewater Lumberjacks. The name changed again to the South Shore Lumberjacks for the 2014-15 season.

“The organization would like to thank all fans, players, staff, volunteers, and sponsors of Lunenburg County for your support since the team’s inception,” said team owner Dave Hinkley.

Other teams in the Maritime Junior Hockey League include the Campbellton Tigers, Edmundston Blizzard, Fredericton Red Wings, Grand Falls Rapids, and Miramichi Timberwolves.
