The Prairie Junior Hockey League is a Junior "B" ice hockey league in Saskatchewan, Canada, sanctioned by Hockey Canada that was formed in 1992. The PJHL was known as the South Saskatchewan Junior "B" Hockey League until the end of the 2005-06 season when they changed their name. The playoff champion traditionally played-off against the champion of the North Saskatchewan Junior B Hockey League (which was formed in 1966) in the Saskatchewan Provincial Junior B Hockey Championship for the right to compete for the Keystone Cup, but the two leagues merged in 2007.

Since the merger, the PJHL has been the only Junior 'B' team in the province; thus its champion has been awarded the provincial title. If eligible, the provincial champion moves on to compete for the Western Canadian Junior 'B' championship, the Keystone Cup.

The league draws many players from Saskatchewan, most teams draft players from nearby towns and cities, though it's not mandatory. Some teams outweigh other teams in the PJHL. For example, the Pilot Butte Storm advanced to the finals eleven years (2005-15) in a row, while the Ochapawace Thunder (0-40-0-0) didn't win a game in the 2015–16 PJHL season.
