League standings show Peguis with only 12 losses, in order for standings to make sense they must have had 15 losses


All four teams qualify.  The semifinals are best-of-five (1 vs 4, 2 vs 3).  The semifinal winners meet in the best-of-seven final.  The provincial championship will not be held this year and the league finalist will participate in the 2019 Keystone Cup as the Peguis Juniors are hosting the event and automatically qualify.



2019 KJHL champions Peguis Juniors

Baldy Northcott Trophy Playoffs[]

As the Baldy Northcott Trophy is the Manitoba provincial Junior B championship trophy; a new trophy will likely be used for the league playoff championship for both the Capital Region Junior Hockey League and the Keystone Junior Hockey League. No provincial championship will be held this year, the playoff champion was to be the KJHL league representatives for the Keystone Cup. However, the host of the Keystone Cup won the league playoffs, so the runner-up represents the league instead.
