Ice Time Costs increased for this season by $225 per team and will increase each of the next four years. The cost of hosting two more playoff games in August to finish season is close to the increase. We will forego the balance of the 19/20 season and there won’t be an increase in cost for teams entering the 20/21 season.

The 2020 Stanley Pint Champions are:

BC Heating for the Lager Conference

Frozen Wings for the Stout Conference
