BCHL stays on course

It was business as usual for the B.C. Hockey League at the circuit’s annual general meeting June 5 to 7 in Richmond.

The league will continue following the Junior A Supplement document, which determines discipline on dangerous hits and fighting. The Supplement was created by the four western Junior A leagues and will be followed by all 128 Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) teams across the 10 Junior A leagues next season.

The BCHL will continue with the same playoff format as this past season. Again, this will see best-of-seven playoff action in Rounds 1 and 2, a three-team round robin in Round 3 designed to eliminate one team and a best-of-seven Fred Page Cup final between the two teams surviving Round 3.

For the third-straight season, the Bauer BCHL Showcase will take place, running Sept. 19 to 21 at Prospera Centre in Chilliwack. All games played at the Showcase will count in the regular-season standings and a large contingent of NCAA coaches, professional scouts and Canadian university representatives are again expected to attend.

BCHL regular-season games will begin Friday, Sept. 26 and finish Sunday, March 1, 2015.
