ESHOW HISTORY

Welcome to the #Eshow record books, a comprehensive breakdown in the history of the Eastern Hockey League (EHL). Below you'll find a timeline dating back to the formation of the EHL, along with lists of records set over the past 5 seasons. Please note, all records noted below are completed, and are no longer part of active streaks or seasons. Through the expansion of the EHL, the total number of regular season games per year has ranged from 44 to 50.

EHL Timeline

The Atlantic Junior Hockey League started in 2003-04 when a group of Metropolitan Junior Hockey League owners decided they needed another level of commitment to college-bound hockey players. The AJHL was put together to fill this the role of increasing competitiveness, commitment to the Junior hockey player, and to provide a recruiting ground for NCAA college coaches.

In 2012 the AJHL officially separated from its umbrella organization and became a stand-alone Junior hockey league with a new non-profit charter, new mission statement, and new set of operating rules.

In 2013 the AJHL changed its name to the Eastern Hockey League when it absorbed six former Eastern Junior Hockey League franchises.  Over the past 12 years the AJHL/EHL has steadily expanded to its current slate of 16 franchises by adding and re-shuffling to cover hockey rich markets in the Northeast.

Below is a brief franchise history of the AJHL/EHL:

  • The six charter members of the AJHL were the Philadelphia Little Flyers, Washington Jr. Nationals, New Jersey Titans, North Jersey Avalanche, New York Bobcats and Hartford Jr. Wolfpack.  
  • In 2004-05 the Titans and Avalanche dropped out while the Portland Jr. Pirates, Northern Cyclones, New Jersey Rockets and Boston Bulldogs were added.
  • In 2005-06 the Laconia Leafs, Hudson Valley Eagles and the Walpole Express were added while the Northwood School and the National Sports Academy participated in a limited scheduling partnership.
  • In 2006-07 the Binghamton Jr. Senators were added to the league.
  • In 2007-08 the Hudson Valley Eagles dropped out of the league.
  • In 2008-09 the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers were added.
  • In 2010-11 the Binghamton Jr. Senators moved to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to become the Knights.
  • In 2012-13 the Boston Bulldogs moved to Tewksbury, Mass., to become the Boston Jr. Rangers and the New Jersey Titans re-entered the league. The Portland Jr. Pirates left the league.
  • In 2013-14 the Laconia Leafs suspended operations and the league absorbed former EJHL members New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs, Boston Bandits, Valley Jr. Warriors, New York Applecore, Philadelphia Revolution and Connecticut RoughRiders.
  • In 2014-15 the Laconia Leafs moved to Waterville Valley, N.H., to become the New England Wolves and the East Coast Wizards were added as an expansion franchise in Bedford, Mass.
  • In December 2014 the EHL announced the formation of the EHL Elite Division to being play in 2015-16. Seven teams were part of the inaugural move -- Boston Bandits, Boston Jr. Rangers, Walpole Express, Northern Cyclones, New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs, Vermont Lumberjacks and New England Wolves. The Valley Jr. Warriors joined in January 2015 to bring the EHL Elite Division to eight members.
  • Also in December 2014 the EHL granted an expansion franchise to the Connecticut Nighthawks, bringing the total number of franchise members to 20. However, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights and New Jersey Titans went dormant following the 2014-15 season giving the EHL an 18-team league for 2015-16.
  • In November 2015 the EHL accepted seven more teams into the Elite Division: Brewster Bulldogs, Connecticut Nighthawks, Hartford Jr. Wolfpack, New Jersey Rockets, New York Applecore, Philadelphia Jr. Flyers and Philadelphia Revolution.
  • In January 2016 USA Hockey granted the Lehigh Valley Rebels an expansion franchise bringing the Elite Division to a total of 16 teams for 2016-17.
  • In 2016-17 the New England Wolves moved to Laconia, N.H.  The New York Bobcats went dormant for the season. 
  • Prior to the 2017-18 season the Eastern Hockey League set out to re-brand its two divisions. Moving forward the top division was named the Eastern Hockey League, while the bottom division will be called the Eastern Hockey League Premier.
  • Prior to the 2018-19 season, the New York Bobcats went dormant for the year and the Connecticut Oilers moved to Newington, CT.  Moving forward the new name of the team would be the Connecticut Chiefs.
  • The Eastern Hockey League also welcomed in the New Jersey 87s, Team Maryland, and the North Carolina Golden Bears.
  • 2018-19 EHL TEAMS
