AJHL trims number of overagers allowed May 31, 2012 6:56 AM

Alberta Junior Hockey League’s annual general meeting produced some changes for the 2012-13 season, and not all of those changes are being well received.

As expexcted the league rejected a change in the playoff format and approved a reduction in the amount of 20-year-old players a team can have in the lineup. In previous years, the league permitted nine overaged players, but this season that number will drop to six.

Limiting the overaged players to six begins to fall in line with what Major Junior Leagues are forced to do, and how the USHL operates. At Tier II this makes sense in that it forces teams to continually develop young players, and makes them work a little harder to promote its older players to college.

Not everyone in the AJHL is happy with the move.

Among other changes, the AJHL will introduce new initiatives in social media and their live pay-per view service. A wise move for the league that is not well known in the States.
