SUDBURY, Ont. – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League (NOJHL) announced Tuesday its regular season schedule for the 2024-25 campaign.

A revised format will see each of the NOJHL’s 12-member clubs play 25 games at home and another 25 on the road.

Each team will also suit-up twice during the league’s annual Showcase event, which goes October 1-2 at Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex in Sudbury.

As part of the 312-game slate, which features a more balanced schedule, sees two notable changes that will take affect for the upcoming season.

Firstly, there will be just one division of 12, with the Top 8 clubs in the final standings qualifying for the playoffs.

Secondly, the shootout has been eliminated and will see games that are tied after regulation go to a seven-minute overtime period, skating three players aside.

Should contests remain without a winner being decided after OT, the game will end in a tie and each squad will earn one point.

Teams will still receive two points for wins in regulation and OT as well as one for extra time defeats.
