This was the 2015-16 Metropolitan Junior Hockey League season. This was the league's 51st season and final season.  The league schedule commencedon September 11th and ended on February 28th.  The league operated with a one division format with each team playing all other members three times each making for 42 league games for each team.

The playoffs consisted of three rounds.

Shortly after the season ended the Eastern Hockey League announced that they were making changes to their feeder league the EHL Elite division as a result of this change the teams that had kept their developmental team in the MJHL moved their team to the newly reorganized division.  This left the MJHL with only 6 teams committed for the 2016-17 season.  The North American Hockey League was announced as taking over operations of the league and that the league would be renamed the North American 3 Atlantic Hockey League for the 2016-17 season, in a similar manner to the Northern States Junior Hockey League becoming the North American 3 Eastern Hockey League when the NAHL took over operations of that league prior to it being merged into the North American 3 Hockey League after the 2015-16 season.
