The United States Premier Hockey League ("USPHL") and the Eastern Hockey Federation ("EHF") have agreed to merge operations (the "Merger") into the USPHL to form the nation's largest amateur hockey league. The EHF will maintain its name and current 11 team Elite structure along with its multi-level, multi member Tier I divisions under the USPHL umbrella.
The new combination will also allow the EHF Selects Midget Division to create a one-of-a-kind competitive schedule with the USHPL's most competitive full season Midget teams to provide unmatched exposure to NCAA hockey programs for young aspiring hockey players.
The USPHL and EHF organizations have each developed a complete player development model where, for the 2018/2019 season, boys will train, compete and enjoy the sport of ice hockey within their respective age group at the right competitive level.
These programs go beyond the on-ice experience to include education, leadership and community service components to help foster a complete student-athlete. Upon completion of this process, the USPHL membership will consist of over 100-member organizations with 11,000 players spanning the ages of 6 through 20 and having a geographic reach that spans the complete Eastern Seaboard and expands west as far as Wisconsin.
The Merger of the EHF into the USPHL will be completed over the summer and will commence competition in September of 2018.
Please visit the USPHL website or the EHF website for more information regarding member teams and further announcements.

The LC Crusader's march to the Garden saw them finish with a 20-2-2 record. After a dominant regular season, Lowell Catholic secured victories over Marblehead, Saugus and Stoneham in the MIIA State Tourney to earn the chance to play Scituate for the D2 state title on Garden ice.
