The Steel, relocated in 2007 from nearby Fort Saskatchewan where they were known as the Fort Saskatchewan Traders, were the second team to represent the City of St. Albert. The first team to represent the city was the St. Albert Saints, who relocated to Spruce Grove in 2004 to become the Spruce Grove Saints.

On March 29, 2012, it was announced the team applied to relocate to Whitecourt for the 2012-13 season.[2] On May 3, 2012, the AJHL announced that it approved the relocation of the Steel to Whitecourt to become the Whitecourt Wolverines,[1] taking their name from the simultaneously disbanded junior "B" Whitecourt Wolverines of the North West Junior Hockey League.[3]
