In Quebec during the 60's/70's it was quite normal to play Junior B for a year or two then get promoted to Major Junior. I remember seeing Ian Turnbull and Richard Mulhern ( among others) playing for the Pointe Claire Flyers for a year or so? Before moving on up the ladder. Back them AAA Midget wasn't an option in Quebec.

A really talented player would play Junior B when he was 15 , then Major Junior later. Some might have the skills to play at 14, but seldom did as Junior hockey was VERY rough back then, and most 14 year olds would be near traumatized by playing it.
