OverviewEdit

"Axemen" is the name of the sports teams of Acadia University, located in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. They are members of the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference and U Sports (formerly known as CIS).

Acadia was an original member of the Maritime Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) hockey league in 1919-20. The conference changed names in 1968-69 to the Atlantic Intercollegiate Athletic Association (AIAA), in 1973-74 to the Atlantic Universities Athletic Association (AUAA), and finally in 1998-99 to the present AUS.

Until 1953-54 they also played in the Valley Senior Hockey League and, when they advanced, the Maritimes Senior Playoffs leading to the Allan Cup.
