Non-NHL hockey team directory: North America

The NHL CBA quietly expired on Saturday night, and with it, the NHL went into its second lockout in under 10 years. The last time the League had a lockout, it lost an entire season.

So in a week where hockey fans should be eagerly heading to watch NHL training camps, and hockey writers discussing what changes their teams made over the summer, and the experts putting together team forecasts and fantasy rankings ... the league has fallen dark.

But despite fans bemoaning that there's "no hockey" to watch, there is in fact plenty of hockey - if you know where to look. Here is your state-by-state and Canadian province-by-province breakdown of the top junior, collegiate, and semi-pro leagues in North America.
