The Capital Region Junior Hockey League is a junior B hockey league based out of the Greater Winnipeg, Manitoba area. The league was formed during the 2018 off-season to begin with the 2018-19 playing season.

FormationEdit

The Arborg Ice Dawgs, Lundar Falcons (senior), North Winnipeg Satelites, St. Malo Warriors, and Selkirk Fishermen withdrew from the Keystone Junior Hockey League to form the Capital Region Junior Hockey League, citing travel costs and travel safety in light of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.[1]  Leaving the KJHL with all teams sponsored by Northern Manitoba First Nations communities.  The break-up was apparently not amicable as the remaining members of the KJHL have stated they have paid for travel expenses, hotels, and meals for the visiting teams and that the expense reason was simply not true.  The parents of teams in the south had also stated they were concerned about the amount of travel their children would be doing and that also played into the decision to form a new league.

As of August 24, 2018 the new league has not been sanctioned by Hockey Manitoba but a meeting was scheduled for September 6th with the issue to be addressed.
