OJHL Announces Niagara Falls as New Expansion Team


Starting with the 2023-24 season, the Niagara Falls Canucks have been approved to play in the OJHL as the newest expansion team. The Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL) is the largest Junior A hockey league in Canada, generating dozens of NCAA, U Sports, CHL and professional commitments on an annual basis – including 30 alumni on NHL rosters at the beginning of the 2022-23. The Canucks play their home games at the Gale Centre.

The Canucks will play in the league’s 12-team West Conference. They were selected through an extensive process led by the OJHL Expansion Committee. Canucks co-owners Frank Pietrangelo and Brandon Boone are excited to be welcomed into the OJHL family.

“The Niagara Falls Canucks are proud to be joining the OJHL,” said Pietrangelo. “This is great news for the Canucks organization, the City of Niagara Falls, and also for junior hockey in the Niagara Region, to be able to showcase our players’ talents at the highest level!”
