The Empire Junior Hockey League (EmJHL) is an American Tier III Junior B ice hockey league. The EmJHL is a member of USA Hockey.

History[edit]

On February 25, 2010 the Empire Junior Hockey League Board of Governors voted to eliminate 20 year old players from the League by changing the restriction of no more than four 20-year-olds per team to a maximum of two per team in the 2010–2011 season. Starting with the 2011-2012 season there will be no 20-year-olds in the League.

In 2013, the Empire League and the Eastern Elite Hockey League both agreed to affiliate with the newly formed United States Premier Hockey League.
