The Qu’Appelle Valley Hockey League is a Junior 'C' and Senior ice hockey league in the Regina-area of Saskatchewan, Canada, sanctioned by Saskatchewan Hockey Association and Hockey Canada.

History[edit]

QVHL Senior teams have won Saskatchewan Provincial titles five times. Milestone Flyers were 'C' winners in 1985 and 2003. Grenfell Spitfires were Provincial 'B' champions in 1982.

Balgonie Bisons won the Provincial 'A' championship in 2011. Standing Buffalo Bulls were 'A' winners in 2000.

In 2015 four of the remaining Regina Junior C Hockey League teams joined the QVHL. That league also hosts the annual Brewers Cup, the Junior C championship of Western Canada.

In February and March 2017 Facebook pages for the Wolseley Mustangs and Bredenbury Tundra indicated both organizations were hoping to launch teams into the Qu'Appelle Valley Hockey League for the 2017-18 season. At the league spring meetings both teams were confirmed as well as the Cupar Canucks and Yellow Grass Wheat Kings.

September 4th the QVJHL published the information that the Junior C league would expand by 2 teams for the 2018-19 season by welcoming back the Southerly Marlins (previously a 4 time champion) and newcomers Emerald Park Wizards. By the start of the season the Southerly Marlins were not ready to go, the previous season Cupar Canucks were inactive and the Bredenbury Tundra had received permission to relocate to Esterhazy.
