MJHL getting younger next season


The Manitoba Junior Hockey League will be younger next season after the league decided at its recent AGM to reduce the number of 20-year-olds teams can dress for games.
Teams will no longer be able to dress nine 20-year-olds as that number has been reduced to eight.
And MJHL Commissioner Kim Davis said that number could go down in future seasons.
“This motion was approved by the board of governors at our recent AGM,” Davis said.
“This reduced limit will be reviewed annually, with the ultimate intention of having the limit to six per team.”
Other news coming out of the AGM will see the MJHL conduct its first-ever Prospect Development Camp, July 27 to 30, at the Seven Oaks Community Centre in Winnipeg.
The camp will feature list players born in 2000 and 2001 from each MJHL club and will focus on preparing the players for a successful junior hockey career and helping them transition from minor hockey to elite junior hockey in the MJHL and beyond.
