2008–09 

The 2007–08 OPJHL season is the 15th season of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League (OPJHL). The thirty-five teams of the North, South, East, and West divisions will compete in a 49-game schedule.

Come February, the top six teams of each division competed for the Frank L. Buckland Trophy, the OJHL championship. The winner of the Buckland Cup, the Oakville Blades, competed in the Central Canadian Junior "A" championship, the Dudley Hewitt Cup, and won. Once successful against the winners of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League and Superior International Junior Hockey League, the champion Blades then moved on to play in the Canadian Junior A Hockey League championship, the 2008 Royal Bank Cup where they finished last.
