North Saskatchewan Jr "B"

The North Saskatchewan Junior B Hockey League were a Junior "B" ice hockey league in Saskatchewan, Canada, sanctioned by Hockey Canada. The playoff champion played-off against the winner of the Southern Saskatchewan/Prairie Junior Hockey League for the right to compete for the Keystone Cup. In 2007, the North Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League joined the Prairie Junior Hockey League creating one league.

History[edit | edit source]

The league was formed in 1966 when the Saskatoon Macs left the Long Lake Junior Hockey League.  The first season the league included the Macs, Shellbrook Knights, Melfort TM's, and teams from Outlook, Humboldt, and Prince Albert.  These six teams made up the league from 1966 to 1969 when  the Shellbrook Knights and Melfort TM's both leave the league, and four new teams joined the league (North Battleford St. ThomasMildenUnity, and the Saskatoon Wesleys).

The league would last to the 2006-07 after which the Saskatoon Chiefs (now Delisle Chiefs), Saskatoon Quakers, Saskatoon Royals, Saskatoon Westleys, and the Tri-Town Thunder (now Carrot River Outback Thunder) all join up with the South Saskatchewan Junior B Hockey League to form the Prairie Junior Hockey League. Traditionally the North Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League champion faced off against the South Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League champion at the Saskatchewan Provincial Junior B Hockey Championship for the right to compete at the Keystone Cup -- the Western Canadian Junior B Championship.
