Below is the Evhl Playoff schedules for all divisions. The web site should be updated to reflect the schedule. The playoffs are based on the Buffalo points system where teams earn points by period. One point is awarded to the team that scores the most goals in period or splits the point if equal number of goals. The team that wins the game get an addtional 2 points or the 2 points are split is the game ends in a tie. The most points a team can earn in a game would be 5-one for each period and 2 for the win. Each team will play each other once and then the top two point teams will play in the Final Championship game. All EVHL rules apply. The final Championship games are win or lose and in the event of a tie at the end of regulation play will result in overtime play and possible shoot out.
Good luck to all teams.
Below are the practice and game times for February. The start of the playoff games are highlighted in red and the balance of the playoffs will be posted for the first weekend of March.

We would like to thank our of the players and families for a great hockey season. All of the teams had a good season. The HS team placed second in their division and was very strong in the EVHL playoff championship losing in the final seconds 7-6 but overall a great season. In the JV division HR2 took 1st place in league play and HR1 took the EVHL playoff Championship game.
In the EL division, HR1 and HR2 were neck and neck all season long with HR2 winning the EVHL Playoffs
And the Mite division saw some outstanding improvements all season long with outstanding team play and skill development.
Both Select teams and the MG tournament teams had outstanding seasons against some pretty tough competition, not to mention the Cross Ice Jamboree team which also was very competitive.
Special thanks to all the coaches and team mgr who put in countless hours with our players.
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR A GREAT SEASON.
