The Metropolitan Junior Hockey League (MJHL) is an American Tier III Junior ice hockey league with 20 teams (as of 2011/12 season) throughout the eastern United States. The MJHL is part of the Atlantic Metropolitan Hockey League organization. The League is the oldest Junior League in the United States, founded in 1966 by NY Rangers GM, Emile Francis.

Its "big sister" the AJHL is also a Tier III, Junior league. In May 2012, the AJHL left the Atlantic Metropolitan Hockey League family and became its own entity managed by the team owners. In 2013 as part of the north east re-organization of junior hockey the AJHL re-branded itself to the Eastern Hockey League (EHL).

The league does place a number of players into NCAA Colleges, with most going to Division III, and some to Division I.[1]

During the summer of 2014 several new organizations joined the MET and it became a 23 team league and added a fourth division. In December 2014, the Eastern Hockey League (EHL)announced the formation of an Elite Division, which effectively moved eight developmental teams from the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League. The Metropolitan league plan to offset the loss with the return of New Jersey Rockets and the New York Saints organizations and the addition of teams from the Connecticut Oilers and the New Jersey Colonials organizations.
