It's not really a new league. The USAH sanctioned Tier 3 league called the Greate Lakes Junior Hockey league split into two. Basically half of the league wanted to split away from USAH to form this new league. The other half of the league felt uncomfortable with that, so they joined the MnJHL.

I'm not entirely certain why the split, but I've heard a lot of rumors between the two previously linked sites that say Tier 3 teams are not pleased with USAH right now. The two main reasons are that USAH wants to exclude 16 year olds from playing Tier 3 juniors and USAH is overly restrictive when deciding on how relocating or adding junior teams affect youth leagues. Hence many Tier 3 teams have bolted for the AAU.
