The Central West Senior Hockey League (CWSHL) is a Canadian senior ice hockey league in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The league competes for the Herder Memorial Trophy and its teams can declare themselves eligible for the Allan Cup. Founded in 2011 as the Newfoundland Senior Hockey League, the league became the Central West League in 2014.

History[edit]

The league was confirmed September 10, 2011 at the Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador AGM. The league is the result of a merger between the Avalon East Senior Hockey League and the West Coast Senior Hockey League. The league includes the province's two only Allan Cup champions, the Corner Brook Royals (1986 Allan Cup) and Clarenville Caribous (2011 Allan Cup).

The league is a Newfoundland-wide league, much like the old Newfoundland Hockey League which folded in the 1980s.
