A Name with History
The name "Junior Maples" is a tribute to the original Maples, one of the oldest continuously operating amateur hockey clubs in the nation. The team was founded in 1924, as French-Canadian families came to Merrimack Valley for factory work and brought hockey with them. In 2016, Terrence Doyle wrote a short history of the Maples.

A Program with Legacy
The Jr. Maples pays homage to two successful local hockey programs, Triton Youth Hockey and Amesbury Youth Hockey. We would not be here today without the coaches, players, and volunteers from both of those programs. We will always remember where we came from. Together we are stronger than ever.
