Spring Draft League will be four teams based on our Winter Classic Tournament. Extra jerseys will be ordered to use for the Doan’s Winter Classic outdoor tournament in following years. So the team names will be Doan’s High Life, Lagermen, Stout Bros and Team Porter. The jerseys will be printed with your number and name. We must have over 40 players committed by March 20th to run the league and order the jerseys in time. We need at least four sponsors at $250 each. Sponsors will have their logo on ALL team jerseys in a European style design. I will get creative with the design. You can see an example by looking at the Budtender jerseys that we plan to wear for playoffs.

Beer League Hockey – Sunday Early

Eclectic Hockey League (EHL) is organized hockey by players for players. We started with four teams in 2015, added two more for 2016 start of the season and grew to eight teams starting in 2017. For the 2019/20 season we will have twelve teams, six in each conference.

Lager Conference 25+ B
Stout Conference  40+ B

Season start 9/15

We set the full schedule in advance of the season start thanks to a close relationship and cooperation with our rink, Crystal Fieldhouse in Burton, MI.

The schedule, stats, finances and more are found through the use of a mobile app, Hockey Community.

Player payments will be managed through the Hockey Community app so players and managers will have easy access to view payments and balances.
