Junior C hockey in Ontario is about to take a new look, as the Ontario Hockey Association announced in their Blueline Magazine that all 8 Junior C loops in Ontario, including the Great Lakes Junior C Hockey League have committed to forming a singular Provincial Junior Hockey League (PJHL).

“The new league is taking the necessary step to better enhance the opportunities for its teams and, more importantly, to provide those enhanced standards for its players within today’s hockey structure,” said OHA Executive Director Mark Ellis in the article.

Ontario’s Junior C leagues feature 65 teams Province wide.

A committee, which was set up in 2014 was slated to have standardized rules, procedures, and other guidelines completed at the end of this 2015-2016 season.
