This is the 2018-19 Ontario Junior Hockey League season. This is the league's 9th season as a re-established league after the league members played in 2 separate leagues for the 2009-10 season.  The league slightly re-aligned the conferences with the North-East and South-West Conferences becoming the North-West Conference and  the South-East Conference.  The Lindsay Muskies were moved from the North Division to the East Division and the Oakville Blades shifting from the South Division to the West Division.[1]

Milton Icehawks Relocation[edit | edit source]

  • On June 18, 2018 the ownership of the Milton Icehawks, who also owns the Junior B level Brantford 99ers announced that the team will be relocated to Brantford and assume the 99ers name.[2] No decision has been made as for the future of the Junior B team, as of now the team is tentatively planning on staying put pending a meeting with Ontario Hockey Federation officials. 
  • In mid-September the Ontario Hockey Association stated that it did not approve the relocation. The OHA’s position is that it has the authority to approve a relocation,and that it did not approve this relocation. The OJHL and the Junior A teams’ position is that the OHA approved the relocation, but if it did not approve the relocation then the OHA’s approval of such a relocation is not required.  Pending the outcome of the legal proceedings, the team will be known as the “Milton Icehawks”.[3]
