Ice Hockey Wiki

This is the 1966-67 season of the Canadian Major Junior Hockey League.

This was its first season. The league was formed around the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League with the addition of the Edmonton Oil Kings and the Calgary Buffalos.

The Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) did not approve of the formation of the league. Major disputes were going outside Saskatchewan to include teams from Alberta (Edmonton & Calgary) and who would administer Canadian junior hockey. The Canadian Major League wanted junior hockey run separately from the CAHA.

October 12 notice of suspension.

The CAHA suspended the league so it was not eligible for the Memorial Cup.
