We are entering the second half of the season where Teams start their rally towards the WNHL League Championship on April 8th at the Meridian Centre. The WNHL League Championship is in replace of the WNHL All-Star Game because of the sheer numbers we now have involved in the WNHL. I also believe it will be a great end of the season party before we go to basic pick-up from mid-April to the end of June 2017.
To determine who will be playing for what at the WNHL League Championship the GM’s and myself decided on a Round-Robin Format in the last 6 weeks of the season. The top two teams from the Round Robin will face off in the Championship Game at the Meridian for the a winner take all and the two lower teams will battle out for “don’t be last place” game before the Championship Game.
Rules of the Round Robin
Regular WNHL rules apply
2 points for a win and 1 point for a tie
Goals for and goals against factor in the standings
The tiebreaker will be the standings from the Regular Season from September 14th 2016 to February 22nd 2017
