The Kootenay International Junior Hockey League is a Junior "B" Ice Hockey league in British Columbia, Canada, sanctioned by Hockey Canada. The winner of the KIJHL playoffs competes with the champions of the Pacific Junior Hockey League and the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League for the Cyclone Taylor Cup, the British Columbia Provincial Title. The winner of the Cyclone Taylor Cup moves on to compete for the Western Canada "B" Crown, the Keystone Cup.

History[edit]

Founded in the early 1960s, the league was represented by the Trail Smoke Eaters in 1962, 1964, 1965, and 1966 for the Mowat Cup. In the '60s, the Mowat Cup determined the British Columbia seed in the Memorial Cup playdowns.

In 2013, the Penticton Lakers were sold to an ownership group in 100 Mile House. The team relocated there for the 2013-2014 season and is now called the 100 Mile House Wranglers.
