The Manitoba Junior Hockey League Board of Governors have voted to move away from the MJHL Draft moving forward. This decision will allow Manitoba prospects (beginning with the 2009 age group) entering the MJHL for the first time to have control over which member team they’d like to play for. As every situation is different across the MJHL, Manitoba born prospects will have 13 options to consider in deciding which member MJHL organization best suites their individual needs. The MJHL exists to provide the best hockey development opportunities for elite players with a significant focus on Manitoba players. The removal of the MJHL Draft will help put a stronger emphasis on all member organizations to run a program of choice for players and will give every Manitoba prospect greater choice on what MJHL program they feel would be the best fit for their individual development path. Going forward beginning with 2009 born Manitoba Prospects: Eligible to sign with any member MJHL team beginning for the 2025-26 season. 2023 MJHL Draft (2007’s): Any auto-protect / draft pick who remains unsigned by the team they were drafted by will be eligible to sign with any other MJHL team as of August 1st, 2024. 2024 MJHL Draft (2008’s): Any auto-protect / draft pick who remains unsigned by the team they were drafted by will be eligible to sign with any other MJHL team as of August 1st, 2025.
