The winner of the OJHL playoffs, the Owen Sound Greys, failed to win the 1987 Buckland Cup for the OHA championship.[1] The league folded in the summer of 1987. Owen Sound returned to the Midwestern Junior B Hockey League, while the Richmond Hill Dynes, Markham Waxers, and Aurora Eagles all dropped to the Central Junior B Hockey League. The dormant Orillia Terriers and Newmarket Flyers also jumped to the Central Jr. B league for 1987-88.
