The Meaning Behind the NJHL

The National Junior Hockey League name was chosen for a variety of reasons. Independent status allows us to operate in multiple provinces so opportunities are not limited provincially.  More importantly, the players from our teams represent several nations, including Canada, the US, Europe, the Metis Nation of Alberta, as well as over 40 First Nations across the country. As such, the National Junior Hockey League honours the diversity of our players within our name.
