    Hi All,

    I was wondering if anyone could help me out with the names for the following obscure junior leagues. These leagues would have been in operation any time between 1979 and 1996.

    BHL (no, not the BCHL)
    CJHL
    CoHL
    COJHL
    EJHL
    GHJHL
    GLJHL
    MJHL
    MOJHL
    MTJHL
    MWOJHL
    NAHL
    NAJHL
    NEJHL
    NOHA
    NSJHL
    NYPJHL
    OJHL
    OPJHL
    RMJHL
    SJHL
    SOJHL
    SSHL


    Seeing some of these acronyms made me feel like I was reading the stock market ticker. Anyone know any of the names? Any help would be appreciated.

    Seriously the CJHL is the Central Junior Hockey League that is in Eastern Ontario. Danius Zubris got drafted directly from this league. http://www.cjhl.on.ca/

    CJHL -- Central Junior A Hockey League
    CoHL -- (not mentioned but one is listed as ColHL -- Colonial Hockey League)
    COJHL -- ??
    EJHL -- Eastern Junior Hockey League
    GHJHL -- ??
    GLJHL -- (not mentioned but one is listed as GLHL -- Great Lakes Hockey League)
    MJHL -- Manitoba Junior Hockey League
    MOJHL -- ??
    MTJHL -- Metropolitan Toronto Junior Hockey League
    MWOJHL -- ??
    NAHL -- North American Hockey League -- Tier I
    NAJHL -- North American Junior Hockey League
    NEJHL -- New England Junior Hockey League
    NOHA -- Northern Ontario Hockey Association
    NSJHL-- Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League (A guess on my part)

    OJHL -- Ontario Junior Hockey League
    OPJHL -- Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League
    RMJHL -- Rocky Mountain Junior Hockey League
    SJHL -- Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League
    SOJHL -- (Southern Ontario Junior Hockey League?--a guess since there is a OJHL)
    SSHL -- (Could be South Saskatchewan Hockey League since the book lists SSJHL and SSMHL as South Saskatchewan leagues)

    The SJHL, MJHL, NOJHL and CJHL are still alive and well. In fact, the SJHL has had four teams advance to the national championship in the last five years. As Carolina Hurricanes' captain Rod Brind'Amour will tell you, it's not an obscure league.

    The South Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SSJHL) is a Junior B loop. To my knowledge, they haven't produced any NHL players. The South Saskatchewan Minor Hockey League is a AA minor hockey loop. A few guys in the show have graduated from there. (Brenden Morrow played his bantam hockey in Estevan, I'm guessing there are a few graduates from Notre Dame's teams in the NHL). Not sure what the SSHL would be. Haven't heard of it before.
