At the November CPIHL Board of Directors meeting, the 2018-19 Varsity postseason format was approved.
The Top 3 teams at the conclusion of the regular season automatically qualify for the playoffs. The teams ranked 4th and 5th in points will play a one game 'play-in' game to qualify as the 4th playoff team. Those four teams will then play a double-elimination format as they compete for the Bears Cup!
The Top 6 teams at the conclusion of the regular season automatically qualify for the playoffs. The 1st and 2nd seeds earn a first-round bye. Those six teams will play a double-elimination format as they compete for the Viola Cup!
CPIHL players past and present, along with league founders, gathered at Giant Center Saturday, December 8, and were recognized on-ice between periods. CPIHL families also had the chance to take to the ice before the game for a free skate session. So great to see so many CPIHL-ers at Giant Center!
The 2018-19 season marks a huge milestone for the CPIHL, our teams and our players -- 25 years of scholastic ice hockey! And our league has never been stronger. This year will feature nearly 45 Varsity, Junior Varsity and Middle School teams.
For the first time in our 25 year history, the league now will feature games played between our "pure" teams and teams that feature skaters from more than one school. It is a change embraced league-wide that will result in exciting new matchups and a chance for our fans to see talented players they have not had a chance to watch in previous seasons.
We really like our 25th Anniversary logo and hope you do, too. Now available for purchase is Limited Edition 25th Anniversary CPIHL apparel. Click on the logo to be directed to our online store!
