NOJHL Partners with JuniorHockey.com - Junior Hockey News

Published: Sunday, 20 Jan 2013

JuniorHockey.com is proud to announce that the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League (NOJHL) has joined the site as an Advertising, Content, and Prospects List Partner.

The NOJHL is one of the ten junior "A" level leagues that make up the Canadian Junior Hockey League. The NOJHL also operates under the supervision of the Northern Ontario Hockey Association and Hockey Canada.

The winner of the NOJHL play-offs competes for the Dudley Hewitt Cup with the winners of the Ontario Junior Hockey League and Superior International Junior Hockey League. The winner of the Dudley Hewitt Cup then moves on to compete for the Royal Bank Cup, Canada's Junior "A" National Championship.

In 2012, the Soo Thunderbirds qualified for the Royal Banks Cup and beat eventual winner Penticton in the round-robin before losing to that same team in the semi-finals.

"This is a big day for our league," NOJHL Commissioner Robert Mazzuca commented. "The NOJHL is very proud to be the first CJHL league to join JuniorHockey.com's programs."

"The Thunderbirds have been a partner with JuniorHockey.com for a year now," said Soo General manager Kevin Cain. "We are very happy with the arrangement and it has been a big benefit for us. Stephen has been a supporter of the Thunderbirds and now all of our member teams and players will benefit from the site's level of exposure."

"We are very excited to add the NOJHL to our program," said JuniorHockey.com's Stephen Heisler. "The seven teams that make up the league have a very valuable developmental platform that should be very attractive to players from outside the region."

The agreement calls for every player in the league to be added to the site's new Prospects List with thie Video Evaluation System (VES).

"The Prospects List with VES is a very valuable tool and will dramatically increase exposure for each individual player in the league," Heisler added. "The players are going to have to put some work, like registering with the NCAA Eligibility Center, but the VES gives prospects the rare opportunity to be seen by many from outside the Northern Ontario region."

Headquartered in Kingwood, Texas, JuniorHockey.com celebrates its 2nd season as the nation's only independent news source devoted to junior hockey. With 100,000+ views a month and over 10,000 pages of content, JuniorHockey.com is emerging as the world's foremost producer of junior hockey content.
