GMHL seasons

The 2006–07 GMHL season was the first season of the Greater Metro Junior A Hockey League (GMHL). The seven teams of the GMHL played 42-game schedules.

In February 2007, the top teams of the league played down for the Russell Cup, emblematic of the grand championship of the GMHL. Since the GMHL is independent from Hockey Canada and the Canadian Junior Hockey League, the GMHL formed an alliance with the WHA Junior Hockey League of British Columbia under the name National Junior Hockey Alliance. At the end of the league playoffs, the WHA champion was invited to a 3-game series hosted by the GMHL champion. The Bradford Rattlers won the Russell Cup 4-games-to-1 over the King Wild and the Alliance Cup 3-games-to-none over the New Westminster Whalers.
