In 1980, the OMJHL became the 'Ontario Hockey League.' From 1974 until 1978 (as the Ontario Major Junior Hockey League), Clarence "Tubby" Schmalz was the league's commissioner.Then, for one season (1978–79), former IHL commissioner Bill Beagan served as commissioner of the OMJHL.Since 1980 the league has grown rapidly into a high-profile marketable product, with many games broadcast on television and radio.
In 1896 the OHA moved to the modern age-limited junior hockey concept, distinct from senior and intermediate divisions.
Using the new system, Molson products dated before 31JAN18 are past date. is the independent consumer guide to beer product dating.
(Using the old system, beer 110 days old is stamped A318.) Oddly enough, I've never seen a bottle of Molson Brandor with any product date. It is not owned, operated, affiliated with, or endorsed by any brewery or brewing company.
In 1975 the league phased out the area protections, and the 1976 OHA midget draft was the first in which all midget players were eligible.
In 1999 the league changed the draft to a bantam age (15 and 16 year old).
