The MMJHL is a Manitoba Junior B hockey league that has thrived since it’s inception in 1970.

After the creation of the Western Hockey League, founders of the MMJHL felt players didn’t adequate teams to play for in the Winnipeg area and this spawned the league. It is fabled that the “Major” portion of the name was a response to the new level of major junior hockey taking off across Canada.

Players in the MMJHL are typically local. If a player wants to play close to home after or during high school, this Manitoba Junior B league will provide a place for them.
