The Charlottetown Abbies were a Tier-II Junior "A" team based out of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. They played in the Maritime Junior A Hockey League. Their home rink was the MacLaughlin Arena on the campus of theUniversity of Prince Edward Island.

HistoryEdit

The Abbies have been an institution in Junior hockey in Charlottetown for several decades. In the 70s the Island Junior Hockey League (IJHL) boasted two Charlottetown teams, the Generals who played out of the old Charlottetown Forum, and the Abbies who were based at the Simmons Sports Center. The league also included at one time or another the Kings County Kings, Summerside Crystals (Summerside Western Capitals), West Prince Bluefins, North River North Stars, and the Sherwood-Parkdale Metros. Eventually the two Charlottetown teams merged, maintaining the Abbies moniker. As costs became prohibitive for an Island wide league at the Junior A level in the late 80s, teams in the league folded. Eventually, in 1991 the Abbies and the Summerside Western Capitals left to join teams in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to form the Maritime Junior Hockey League.

In May 2008, it was announced that the Abbies' management had applied for a year's leave of absence from the Maritime Junior A Hockey League, citing financial problems. In May 2009, the commissioner of the MJAHL stated in a newspaper interview that the Abbies would not operate again
