The Heritage Junior B Hockey League (HJHL) is a Junior B ice hockey league in Alberta, Canada, sanctioned by Hockey Canada. The HJHL was founded in 1987 and is made up of teams from southern and central Alberta. The HJHL is the largest Junior B league in the province, with 15 teams that competed in 2006-07. The top two teams qualify for the Alberta Provincial Junior B Hockey Championship, whose winner had an option to compete in the Keystone Cup.
The Lacombe Wranglers won the 2007 league championship over the Airdrie Thunder and Okotoks Bisons in a three team, round robin final. The Wranglers also captured the Alberta provincial title. The Wranglers chose not to participate in the Keystone Cup tournament due to scheduling conflicts.
During the 2010-2011 HJHL finals, Okotoks won the best-of-three series vs. Blackfalds (formerly Lacombe) 2-1, winning their 8th league title. Both teams advanced to the Junior B Provincials in Leduc. Blackfalds won the final 2-1 over the Beaumont Chiefs to advance to the 2011 Keystone Cup in Sherwood Park. With a 4-1 record going into the final, Blackfalds defeated the host Sherwood Park 2-1 to win the Western Canadian Crown.
The HJHL has 2 divisions for the 2018-2019 season.
