Media Release – June 23rd, 2022
The Fredericton Red Wings Junior A Hockey Club, a member of the Maritime Junior Hockey League (MHL) are pleased to announce a new team name. The Red Wings entered the MHL in the fall of 2019, as a rebirth of the Fredericton Red Wings from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, after 40 years. After completing three successful seasons, we’re pleased to announce the formal name change to the Riverview Ford Red Wings. The Riverview Ford Lincoln Car Dealership, located at the corner of Prospect St and Hanwell Road in Fredericton, has officially become the team’s named title sponsor as of June 23, 2022.
“This is an exciting day for our franchise. To have a local company, make this kind of commitment speaks to the confidence they have in our team and our commitment to being a leading franchise in the Maritime Junior Hockey League. Chris and Aneta Gauthier have put so much into the Fredericton and surrounding areas since taking over the Riverview Dealership, as a truly family-owned business. This is just one more thing they have and are doing for Fredericton. We cannot thank the family enough, and all the staff at Riverview for all they have done to truly make this a real partnership between sport and business” Roger Shannon, President Riverview Ford Red Wings
This new partnership marks an exciting point in the history of both Riverview Ford Lincoln and the Fredericton Red Wings, as both organizations partner to enhance the community spirit in Fredericton.
“We are so excited to be a part of this community and to support such a key component here in Fredericton. Our team at Riverview Ford Lincoln, like the Red Wings, have a high level of community involvement and a belief that supporting the community is a cornerstone to success. The core values of the Red Wings and Riverview Ford Lincoln align perfectly as positive elements of the vibrant city of Fredericton, and we are absolutely thrilled and honoured to be a part of this, and we are excited at what the future holds for both organizations.” Chris Gauthier, Riverview Ford Lincoln
