The St. John's Junior Celtics were a team in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador and played in the Junior B level St. John's Junior Hockey League.  The team played out of St. John's from 1984 to 2014.  The team relocated to Torbay and were renamed the Northeast Celtics playing out of the Jack Byrne Arena.

The team won the league championship in 1993, 1994, 2000, 2001, and 2007.

They played in the Veitch Memorial Trophy tournament in 2000, 2001, 2003, 2008, and 2011, winning the trophy in the last four appearances. This is the provincial Junior B title.

In those three years they played in the Don Johnson Cup tournament for the Atlantic Canada championship. The Celtics have never won this trophy.

On May 4, 2016 the three levels of team that play in the Jack Byrne Arena announced that they combining their efforts to promote the game at all levels locally.  The Northeast Minor Hockey Association has joined with the junior and senior teams to form one group designed to help promote the game at all levels. As part of this agreement, the junior team – which plays in the St. John’s Junior Hockey League and has had a player affiliation agreement with Northeast since 2011 – will change its name to Eagles moving forward.
The minor association as well as the senior and junior teams will continue to have their own executives and associations, but will come together to help each other through a separate body designed to help with promotion, fundraising and sponsorship. The agreement was reached at a recent meeting of all three organizations
