The 2021-22 season comes to an end Sunday for the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL), with two teams – the Brooks Bandits and Pickering Panthers – remaining in the chase for Canada’s National Junior A Championship.

But how did those two teams, and the rest of the CJHL, get to the championship game at the 2022 Centennial Cup, presented by Tim Hortons? And how do the Bandits and Panthers match up?
