The JRC will be one team short for the rest of the winter.
The Fort Saskatchewan Senior AAA Chiefs of the Allan Cup Hockey West (ACHW) will no longer be icing a team.
"The writing was on the wall sort of, but I never thought we would actually fold and it's sad it had to come to this," said captain and long-time veteran Jamie Marshall.
Fort Sask got off to a rough start to the season with an 0-6-1 record, but there were multiple non-roster factors that led to the team folding, including low attendance.
"I think people are busier now and have access to almost any hockey game they want," added Marshall. "We were actually doing okay financially, which for our standards is pretty good, but compared to the other teams in our league they definitely have a bigger budget."
Marshall gave high praise to Scott Chartrand and Ryan Smith who have been crucial in operating the team in the past.
The Chiefs were in Fort Saskatchewan for 15 years. In a statement they said they hope to be playing senior hockey again in the "coming years."
The ACHW is now down to four teams for the 2018-19 season. The Lacombe Generals will be hosting the 2019 Allan Cup.
