    Seems like one of the teams is sending out fishy emails to a bunch of goalies in ggsu, one guy said someone in the usa hockey program leaked the data to them

    This league is better than a soap opera!!! Every year it has had mass changes of teams, year 1 (2016-17) started with 11 teams, Burk's Falls, Ottawa (later Almonte), Akwesasne, Coldwater, Muskoka, Seaforth, O-Town, Essa, Glengarry, Grey Highlands, and Norwood. Burk's Falls changed owners the first year, before the season even started, delayed their start, and eventually left due to a lack of players. Akwesasne and Coldwater never started, also due to lack of players. Ottawa won season 1 then, along with O-Town, were turfed from the league. Glengarry became Smith Falls and Norwood became Cobourg.
    Season 2 (2017-18) started with returning Muskoka, Seaforth, Essa, Glengarry/Smith Falls, Grey Highlands, and Cobourg joined by Coldwater, Bracebridge, Brampton, Creemore, and Madawaska. The Almonte Sharpshooters had gone to greener pastures in the eyes of the OP, joining the NCPHL, which folded and brought Almonte back to the CPJHL along with EOHA, Lake Erie, and Maniwaki. The league was getting closer to the 16 that the OP promised. BUT, before the season really got in full swing, Creemore, Brampton, Cobourg, Muskoka and Madawaska were gone. Brampton merged with Grey Highlands because neither team could ice a team. Lake Erie were allowed to delay their start 7 weeks, due to costs (great checks and balances- should have known that before signing up). In the playoffs EOHA and Almonte, both owned by the OP, decided that their lack of players allowed them to cheat, so they pooled resources for 2 games and later got turfed AGAIN. Seaforth was allowed to recruit 5 players from local Junior C teams to play their final regular season game, and 1 game playoff, but were not allowed to use them against the league owner's team in the next series. Essa with their own rules for import players eventually won season 2.
    Season 3 started with returnees Seaforth, Essa, Smith Falls, Grey Highlands, Coldwater, Bracebridge, and Maniwaki joined by another attempt by Brampton, another try by Muskoka, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Universel College Unik, Shawville and Wexford. Lake Erie left, re-branded and eventually folded in another league. Niagara-on-the-Lake jumped ship before the season started, going to the more stable GMHL. Universel College Unik and Bracebridge folded before playing a game. Shawville remains on the CPJHL schedule, but haven't played a game and no longer exist. So then there was 9.....but how strong are the 9? Brampton has been re-branded the Greater Toronto Jaguars "due to ownership failing to meet the minimum requirements set forth by the league." Truth is they had more forfeits than wins, and were icing some players that would struggle to make a decent Juvenile team let alone play "Junior Hockey". A you tube search of their game action would show the depth of their despair. But a quick way to improve them is to give them a new name. LOL. A look at their last game sheet shows 6 skaters and a goalie dressed for a road game in Smith Falls, a goalie less than the 6 and 2 they dressed the night before. "Checks and balances" have disappeared as has player safety.

    Like in the GMHL, the top couple of teams are worth the price of admission. Essa and Grey Highlands have loaded up with imports (supposedly the league max of 6 doesn’t apply to them), but Maniwaki is probably the most talented.
    However, you are only as strong as your weakest link.....and they are the Greater Toronto Jaguars. Last year two teams were tossed for sharing players, this year it is being encouraged. On December 14th, the Jaguars dressed 13 skaters in a game against the Anglers. Unfortunately that 13 included 4 from the Seaforth Generals (one of which was the Gen’s goalie playing out). A couple nights later, the Jaguars played with 9 skaters, as those 4 mysteriously returned to Seaforth.

    and even more quietly than the Brampton Royals became the Greater Toronto Jaguars, they slipped into oblivion. No notification on the CPJHL website, just deleted from the schedule. The few players they had scattered among the remaining 8 teams.
    13 teams down to 8, but how solid are those 8? Wexford Raiders forfeited a game On February 1st, and dressed 6 skaters on February 10th......... it’s all about those ‘checks and balances’

    Does anyone know what happen with Coldwater for them to get kicked out? Just when you think they hit bottom, they are now starting to dig.

    Haven't heard yet, CTV stated 9 players were sent home for an issue at a billet's house. League drops to 7 teams, with one icing less than 10 skaters for most games, and another having financial issues. But the league is already stating that they will expand again at seasons end

    Somehow, this league manages to fall out of sight of the Deadpool. Perhaps it is the 'creative' reporting they use, when promoting the league. In reality, it is 2 leagues, a Quebec league and an Ontario league that meet in the playoffs. There are 4 teams in the Quebec area, 2 power houses (Le Becard and Manawaki) and 2 bottom feeders (Smith Falls and Le Buffalo). The Ontario area has 5 teams, with Langton, Seaforth and the league brass' own team Severn being competitive, and Wexford and Muskoka being fodder. The distance between centers, makes games between the 2 areas nearly impossible. Le Becard is an 11- hours bus trip from Langton and Seaforth.
    That reduces the number of teams each plays. Le Becard is a 4- hour trip for Le Buffalo, and 6 1/2 from Smith Falls. Le Becard is a much stronger team. They play each other 10+ times so, no surprise, Le Buffalo (only 8 skaters playing even 2/3 of their games) and Smith Falls (9 players playing 2/3) struggle to fill a roster. In Ontario, Wexford has forfeited 4 of their games, and had a win by forfeit. 5/29 games on their record were never played. The bigger shock, they have a better record than Muskoka. Rosters and travel costs have created a schedule where Seaforth and Langton just kept playing home and home games.
    This is the 4th season for the league, they have 9 active teams and 22 former teams, with 3 teams struggling and likely to drop this year......see an issue?

    DeathPool stays away due to the CPJHL being a part of the UHU sanctioning body. Their site backs the leagues that are using this organization to steal money from players and families.

    It is really too bad the OP has disappeared, both from here and the families he led down the ‘golden’ path. The shitshow that is the CPJHL continues. The league just announced that they have terminated the Muskoka Anglers and Wexford Raiders, and banned the owner of BOTH organizations, Brian Fish, for life. League President Barry DeGray, who just happens to own another team in the league, says the league will work to relocate the players to other teams in the league..... because there is no money to return to them!
    So, with a month left in the season, they are going to attempt to relocate 40+ players to the 3 teams left in their division or the 4 teams in the Quebec. 5-6 of these teams have full rosters, so someone is getting screwed.
    The one Quebec based team has played 14 fewer games than the top team in the division, and is struggling to put a team together for road games, so their existence is questionable. Realistically they are going into the playoffs with 2 3-team divisions, located 10 hours apart. Langton and Seaforth has played pretty much no one but each other for a month, and they are reworking the schedule to fill 48 games, so they will play each other at least 5 more times in the next month. Then again in the playoffs.
