The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) has a new name.

It has been renamed the Quebec Maritimes Junior Hockey League.

QMJHL officials voted unanimously Thursday to make the change.

The change comes as the league looks to incorporate the Maritimes within its brand identity.

“Recognizing the immeasurable contributions of our six Maritimes-based franchises to the growth of our league has been of paramount importance since I have taken on the role of commissioner,” Commissioner Mario Cecchini said in a news release.

“Out of respect for our clubs in the Maritimes and their fans, it has been a priority for me to include them in the name of the league.”

QMJHL also unveiled a brand new English logo to accompany the name change. The French league logo will remain identical.
