In 1998, the Metro Junior A Hockey League folded and merged with the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League. The Quinte Hawks moved into the OPJHL but were relocated to Bancroft, Ontario. In nine seasons, the Bancroft Hawks would never celebrate a winning season.
In 2007, due to mounting troubles with finding appropriate ownership and supporting the team financially, the Bancroft Hawks were granted a leave from the Ontario Hockey Association.
