No. Jokerit juniors will remain as it is. Though there are rumors (confirmed by B-juniors coach Kari Haakana) that the A-juniors might not be allowed in their league. Now whether that would mean completely removing them or dropping them to a lower tier, is not known. Moving to MHL has never been an option due to practical reasons. A-juniors have 17-21 year old players who are in school or army. League schedules are often designed to facilitate those. Road games abroad would be too much on an inconvenience on both of those.
