SJHL AGM 2014 wrapped up over the weekend in Nipawin

(SJHL Press Release)

The SJHL’s AGM was held once again in Nipawin at the Northern Green Resorts.

Scheduling was completed on Thursday June 5th. (official schedule will be completed and sent out in early July)

There will be the 3 Divisions, Sher-wood, Kramer and the Viterra Divisions. The teams in each of those Divisions remain the same as last year.

The teams will be playing a 56 game schedule the same as last year.
The playoff structure remains the same as last year.  Teams finishing 11 and 12 will be eliminated from further play. Teams 7-8-9 and 10 will play in the Best of 5 WILD CARD series.

Although some teams had a decline in their individual attendance figures, overall attendance for the regular season was up 6%. Playoff attendance was up over 60%, this attributes to different teams making the playoffs and venues with a larger seating capacity having longer runs in the playoffs.

The Governors voted in favor of having at least 65% of all regular season games using the 4 man system. All playoff games will be use the 4 man system.

The Governors agreed upon the process in determining which team would host the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup in the spring of 2016. 3 teams have expressed interest in submitting a bid to host; Estevan Bruins, Melville Millionaires and the Yorkton Terriers.

Bids will be submitted early in the fall and the 9 remaining teams will determine which team will host the 2016 Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup.

The LaRonge Ice Wolves advised the Governors that they are determining the feasibility of playing their Home games out of the Jonas Robert Memorial Community Center (JRMCC) located on the Lac La Ronge Indian Band’s property. In some documents it is referred as a re-location, but it is simply a changing of the venues to play home games. (there was no vote as the Governors were told the process is still determining the feasibility of the change of venues).

The Governors and Coaches of all 12 teams of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League wanted to express their THANKS for the commitment of all the VOLUNTEERS that make the SJHL the league that it is.

The Coaches and Governors are looking forward to the 14-15 season and the ROAD TO THE CANALTA CUP.
