Canadian Junior A Outline


HistoryEdit

This league was set up in 1968 around the Halifax Canadiens. They were an independent junior A team set up by the Montreal Canadiens which enjoyed some success in 1966-67 and 1967-68.

The league did quite well in 1968-69 and looked forward to 1969-70. Two things happened which doomed it. First, the province of New Brunswick withdrew from the Maritimes Amateur Hockey Association which meant that no team from that province could be in this league. Second, the Montreal Canadiens sold the Halifax team after the NHL changed sponsorship rules and then concentrated on getting an American Hockey League team into the city, which eventually led to the formation Nova Scotia Voyageurs, who were previously the Montreal Voyageurs

It survived for two more seasons. In 1969-70 it was eligible for the Memorial Cup. In 1970-71 it played for the Centennial Cup. After that it folded.
