A pair of significant meetings are scheduled for tonight, with votes likely that could impact both junior and local minor hockey.
EOJHL (junior B) club representatives will meet to review the latest outline for the new CCHL2 league that will replace the current model. Groups have had to ante up a pile of cash to bid for franchises in the new league, with a decision of the successful teams expected to be announced soon, likely this week.
At minor council, a vote is expected on a proposal to expand the current midget 'AAA' hockey league to 12 teams, from its current eight, in order to line up with the 12 clubs that make up the CCHL. The plan also calls for the elimination of the minor midget division in 'AAA' hockey and will likely have trickle down effects on 'AA' and 'A' programs as well.
