This is the 1950-51 season of the Ontario Hockey Association's Senior A series:


Note: The Ontario Hockey Association has since renamed the Senior A level as Senior AAA and the Senior B level as Senior AA. In this article the contemporary terms are used.


HistoryEdit

In 1950-51, the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association started a new level of senior hockey called the Major series. In Ontario a league at that level was formed which included three of the four Senior A teams from 1949-50. Only the Owen Sound Mercurys were left.

To fill this gap the Ontario Hockey Association combined the Senior A & B levels.

Four groups - Southwestern, Western, Central,and Eastern - each were allowed to send one team to the provincial A playoffs and one team to the provincial B playoffs. Each group set up its own system to determine the teams to advamce.

Only the Senior A champion could go on to the Allan Cup playoffs.


Southwestern GroupEdit

There were only two teams in this group. The Chatham Maroons and Sarnia Sailors also played in the International Hockey League. The two teams played a series with the winner advancing to the A playoffs and the loser going to the B playoffs.
