The National Capital Junior Hockey League (NCJHL) is a Junior ice hockey league in Ontario, Canada, sanctioned by the Ottawa District Hockey Association and Hockey Canada. The league is meant to be an interprovincial league between Ontario and Quebec.[1]

From 1968 until 2010, the league was known as the Eastern Ontario Junior C Hockey League. At the start of the 2010-2011 regular season, the league was rebranded under its new name - National Capital Junior Hockey League (NCJHL).

In April 2015, the NCJHL accepted the application of the Morrisburg Lions to join the league for starting in the 2015-2016 season. The Lions were one of 6 teams dropped when the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League re-configured and re-branded as the Central Canada Hockey League Tier 2.[2]

In March 2017, it was announced that the reigning NCJHL champions, Embrun Panthers, were joining CCHL Tier 2 in the fall of 2017.

In April 2017, four new teams have been accepted to join the NCJHL: two brand new teams - Blackburn Inferno and Bytown Royals; and two former CCHL Tier 2 teams - Metcalfe Jets and South Grenville Rangers, bringing the total to 12 teams.

On April 16, 2018 the Blackburn Inferno relocated to the Carp section of Ottawa and were renamed the West Carleton Inferno

On May 11, 2018 the Papineau Vikings were sold and relocated to the Stittsville section of Ottawa and were renamed the Valley Golden Knights.  They would be renamed the Ottawa Valley Lightning shortly thereafter.

On June 15, 2018 the Cumberland Bandits announced they would be taking a one year leave of absence.

On July 25 the Ottawa Valley Lightning announced they would take a one year leave of absence
