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 then 12 in 2019. For the 2020/21 season we will have twelve teams, six in each conference. Unfortunately, we only have one sheet to use so a game will be held Saturday 9 pm and then Sunday 9:15 am; 10:30; 11:45; 1 pm; 2:15 pm

Lager Conference 25+ B
Stout Conference  40+ B

2020 Playoffs Mid August is plan 2021 Season Start September.
