Listed below is our updated schedule that will be used when we get started with the regular season. The dates are meant to create an opportunity to maximize our remaining time for both the regular season and playoffs.
REGULAR SEASON DEADLINE - Feb 28, 2021. We expect teams to make a good faith effort to play as many games as possible. The regular season champion will be based on the number of points earned at this time even if the number of games played is not the same.
PLAYOFF ALIGNMENT CUTOFF - Jan 31, 2021. The Division Directors will make playoff alignments based on the results on games completed AND entered into SportsEngine as of noon on Feb 1. We will not have the time to chase down teams that have not entered their scores. Both home and away teams can enter scores, detailed instructions are on the LC website home page. Appeals will not be considered based on the judgment of the quality of the regular season schedule played versus the games still scheduled.
PRELIMINARY PLAYOFF ALIGNMENTS POSTED - Feb 4
ALIGNMENT APPEALS DEADLINE - Feb 5
FINAL PLAYOFF ALIGNMENTS POSTED - Feb 7
FIRST ROUND PLAYOFF GAMES - Feb 12 to the Sunday before your age group's Championship weekend. Mar 7 for Mar 12-14 weekend, Mar 14 for Mar 19-21 weekend and Mar 21 for Mar 26-28 weekend. One game can be counted as both a regular season and playoff game if both teams agree before the game. Playoff games will take priority over regular season games.
CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYOFF WEEKENDS - Mar 12-14, Mar 19-21 and Mar 26-28. The specific weekend for each age group will be determined after the MAHA State Playoff schedule is released and the necessary ice is secured.
I would encourage teams to start the process of rescheduling games to January and February as the schedules are definitely going to get congested. Please do NOT backload your schedule as that puts those games in serious risk if further situations arise.
Thanks for choosing LCAHL and hopefully we will be playing games again soon.
