This is the 2008-09 season of the Ontario Junior Hockey League:

ChangesEdit

For the 2008-09 season, the Ontario Hockey Association granted a group of teams the right to create their own self-governed division, segregated from interdivisional play, with a longer season, and a series of experimental rules. After a few name changes, the division was dubbed Central Division Hockey. The CDH created its own exclusive showcase weekend, its own all-star games, and an all-star challenge with the neighbouring Central Junior A Hockey League. Although its players did participate in the OJHL all-star game with the other divisions.

The creation of the CDH sparked numerous changes within the rest of the league. Most notably, the league changed its name, mid-season, to the Ontario Junior Hockey League. This came with a logo change. The OJHL implement interdivisional play between the three remaining divisions. The OJHL also renamed the divisions as such: North became Phillips, East became Ruddock, and West became MacKinnon (South was virtually wiped out by creation of CDH).

The creation of the CDH also caused many legal squabbles within the OJHL, as a few teams banded together to attempt cease and desist orders against the CDH unsuccessfully. Also, a variety of appeals were filed by non-CDH teams, but were turned down.

The CDH may or may not be a single year phenomenon, but with increased threats of realignment by the Ontario Hockey Association, downsizing may possibly be imminent for the largest known junior hockey league in existence.
