The TJHN annual Junior League rankings will return next week. TJHN will cover the Canadian Major Junior and USHL first, followed by Junior A and Tier II in the United States, followed by Junior B in Canada, and then ending with Tier III and other pay to play in the United States and Canada.
This series of articles and rankings will be based on development success. Development success being defined as in the volume of players being moved up and onward to higher levels of hockey including the NHL, NCAA, Canadian University, and other minor professional hockey.
This series will not address the depth of competiveness of each league. Some leagues obviously having a far greater competitive depth than others due to individual team and league operational standards.
Our final piece in this annual series will combine the top twenty leagues in a ranking regardless of stated or assigned level of play from its governing bodies.
This series will be published weekly, which will bring us pretty close to the end of tryout camp season, and leave only a few weeks before the start of the 2023-2024 regular season.
As always, we look forward to your comments on social media.
