WINNIPEG - After a four-season hiatus, the Manitoba Moose are returning to Winnipeg.

True North Sports and Entertainment announced the new name of the Winnipeg Jets' American Hockey League affiliate on Monday and said the Jets and Moose will share Winnipeg's MTS Centre next season.

The Jets announced in March that they would be moving their AHL team from St. John's, N.L., to Winnipeg for the next season.

The Moose played in Winnipeg from 1996 to 2011, and were the first tenants of the MTS Centre when it opened in 2004.

The AHL club was renamed the IceCaps and moved to St. John's in 2011 when the NHL's Atlanta Thrashers relocated to Winnipeg.

St. John's will be home to Montreal's AHL club next season, and the team will retain the IceCaps name.
