The Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League is a Canadian Junior ice hockey league operating in Eastern Ontario. The league is sanctioned by the Ottawa District Hockey Association and Hockey Canada. The 22 member team of the league compete for the D. Arnold Carson Memorial Trophy.


The EOJHL was founded in 1966 as the Rideau-St. Lawrence Junior "B" Hockey League. Through a merger with the Upper Ottawa Valley Junior "B" Hockey League and the folding of the Lanark-Renfrew Junior "C" Hockey League, the league has grown to 22 different teams. The EOJHL is the only Junior "B" league in the Ottawa District Hockey Association.

The EOJHL is broken up into two traditional conferences that operate separately of each other. Each conference has two divisions. Each conference has its own president and each one operates under variable rules allowed by the ODHA. Each division plays off to declare its own champion, after which the four champion teams play-off for the Metro/Valley Championship and Rideau/St. Lawrence Championship. The winner of these two championships playoff in a best-of-7 series for the D. Arnold Carson Memorial Trophy, the EOJHL crown. The Metro Division champion had gone on to win the last seven EOJHL championships, when the St. Lawrence Division's Alexandria Glens broke the streak in 2007.

In the playoffs, the Shawville Pontiacs and Gatineau Mustangs are both eligible and compete in Hockey Quebec's Coupe Dodge Junior "AA" Championships. Gatineau was the host of the 2006 Coupe Dodge.

In 2007, the Kemptville 73's moved from the EOJHL to the Central Junior A Hockey League. A season later, the EOJHL sold their franchise rights to the then-owners of the Casselman Stars of the Eastern Ontario Junior C Hockey League and then town of Casselman, Ontario. The new team, the Casselman Vikings, will begin play in the 2008-09 season.

In 2009, the Carleton Place Kings left the league to join the Central Junior A Hockey League, they were replaced by the new Almonte Thunder. In late May 2009, the league dropped the Junior "B" designation from its name, becoming the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League.

D. Arnold Carson Memorial Trophy Champions

Since there is no National Championship for Junior B hockey in Canada, similar championships are held in Ontario (Sutherland Cup), Western Canada (Keystone Cup), Quebec (Coupe Dodge), and Atlantic Canada (Don Johnson Memorial Cup). Leaving five teams at the end of the year with a claim to being the best Junior B team in Canada.

Each team listed is a division champion, both the league champion and finalists are either "Metro/Valley" or "Rideau/St. Lawrence" Conference champions. Bolded are league champions, Italicized are finalists.
