The Nova Scotia Regional Junior Hockey League is a Junior "C" ice hockey league in Nova Scotia, Canada, sanctioned by Hockey Canada. League playoff winners compete in the Maritime-Hockey North Junior C Championships.

History[edit]

In 1999 the West Nova Junior Hockey League began as the first Junior C circuit sanctioned by Hockey Nova Scotia. The league was reorganized prior to the 2004-05 season as the Nova Scotia Junior C Hockey League. It was renamed prior to the 2016-17 season.

Barrington Ice Dogs were the first team to repeat as provincial champion winning titles in 2001, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2009.[1] Eastern Shore Jr. Mariners would win back-to-back championships in 2010 and 2011 with the Chester Clippers duplicating the feat in 2012 and 2013. Spryfield Attack became a three-time winner in 2018 after previous titles in 2014 and 2016.

Justin MacLellan of the Avon River Rats made headlines after a 10-point game on January 14, 2018.[2]
