The league folded after this season. The Quebec Aces applied to and were accepted by the American Hockey League. The Royals and the Lions were the core of a new league - the Eastern Professional Hockey League (EPHL).

The Lions folded in 1960 after only one season in the EPHL. The Royals lasted only one more season. The Aces did better, staying on until 1971.
