I just don't have a lot of time to continue at the moment so I wanted to put this out there in case someone else wants to pursue or use it for whatever reason.

Hopefully I got all these links right.
Great contribution.

A few comments.

Pre 1970 there were multiple federations and not all regions of the country were covered hence the spike in numbers. Also pre bantam counts were not made in most regions pre 1960.Pre WWII the schools and parish hockey drove youth hockey. With few exceptions, even today, the school hockey players are/were not counted in Hockey Canada or previously the C.A.H.A. TOTALS.

Thank you for the dedicated effort.
