In May 2013, the SIJHL announced that the Ear Falls Eagles would be joining the league for the 2013-14 season. Weeks later, it was announced that the team would instead be called the English River Miners to better serve the entire community.
On September 20, 2013, the Miners played the first game in their franchise's history. Played in Dryden, Ontario against the Dryden Ice Dogs, the Miners would fall 4-2 after giving up two last minute tallies, one of which was on an empty net. Nathan Johnson scored the first goal in team history 6:06 into the first period. Greg Harney played the first ever game in net, making 32 saves in the effort.
On October 10, 2013, the Miners picked up their first ever franchise victory, on home ice, defeating the Wisconsin Wilderness by a score of 3-1. Devan Vander Wyk scored the eventual game-winning goal 3:47 into the third period, while Holden Melgoza made 29 saves for the victory.
