This is a list of Thunder Bay Junior A Hockey League Standings for the 1976-77 season.

HistoryEdit

On November 7, on the third game of the season, the Thunder Bay Beavers refused to travel to face the Jr. B Atikokan Voyageurs. A last minute exhibition game involving a different team was set up to not disappoint fans. The Thunder Bay Amateur Hockey Association elected to suspend the team indefinitely, fine the team, and suspend the president of the team for one season. The team refused to pay the fine and took the suspension to the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. The CAHA found in the TBAHA's favour. A week later, the team agreed to the terms of the league in regards to the suspension of the team's president, as long as there was no fine. On December 23, the Beavers returned to the ice to finish the season.

Between cancellations, games compromised by the suspension of the Beavers, and a lack of clarity in the schedule by the league's statistician during the season (often noted in the Chronicle-Journal), the season is compiled in an unbalanced fashion. Both the Eagles and the Hurricanes played the league-standard 25 games, the Canadians played 26 with one cancelled game (but according to the league, only 24 of these actually counted, oddly -- but here they are listed as counting, albeit unofficially), the Beavers played 21 games with one cancellation (the missing games are attributed to the team's refusal at the beginning of the season to travel to Atikokan), and the Jr. B Blades played 9 and the Jr. B Voyageurs played 7 (due to games that were not rescheduled).

To make good with the Blades and Voyageurs (the teams most effected by the antics of the Beavers), the league allowed them to join the Jr. A playoffs with the rest of the teams. Atikokan, which struggled greatly in the second half of the season, was allowed to take on an affiliation with the Schreiber North Stars of the Jr. B League for the duration of the Jr. A playoffs to give them a respectable chance.
