Probably no impact provided they don’t change the way they treat players. I’m sure this is about money. They are the most successful Junior a league in Canada and I’m sure they feel they are giving to much away and getting to little in return.
BCHL will still be a great league to play in if your kid is 17-19, and wants to get a shot at D1 next year provided the border is open. USHL still best for this age and NAHL obviously for the 19-20 year olds. My guess is the import rules will change making the league stronger which could weaken the AJHL. Bottom line, if my kid gets a shot at the BCHL he takes it over the NCDC all day.
