The Edmunston Eskimos were a senior, intermediate, and junior team.

The town's relative isolation meant that the teams usually did not play in a league but entered the provincial playoffs as an independent team.

The intermediate team won the New Brunswick championship in 1934-35 and went on to beat the regional Senior B champion. They lost to the Senior A Halifax Wolverines.

The team then moved up to the senior level. The Eskimos entered the Maritimes Senior Playoffs from 1936-40 and in 1944-45 as an independent (non-league) team but were always eliminated early.

A junior team lost the New Brunswick final in 1938-39 Maritimes Junior Playoffs.

Another junior team played in the 1981-82 NBJHL Season.
