LeaguesEdit

Major JuniorEdit


Junior AEdit

The Canadian Junior Hockey League announced that an effort to focus on development of players has resulted in the CJHL reducing the number of 20-year olds playing in the leagues. Starting with 2018-19 the number of 20-year olds will be reduced by one with the maximum allowed being six by the start of the 2020-21 season. The teams can sign additional 20-year olds as affiliate players but the teams can not have the number of 20-year olds exceed the total number allowable for the season.[1]

On September 17, 2019 Hockey Canada announced that the National Junior A Championship would revert to its original name of the Centennial Cup as the event celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2020.[2]
