AJHL announces revised season schedule and playoff format

IP Playoffs 768x728

The Alberta Junior Hockey League today released full details of a revised 57-game regular season schedule that will culminate with the crowning of a new Inter Pipeline Cup AJHL Champion in May.
At the conclusion of the 2023-24 regular season, the top five teams will automatically advance to the 2024 Inter Pipeline Cup AJHL Playoffs, while the bottom six teams will square off in a best of five play-in series (6 vs. 11, 7 vs. 10, and 8 vs.9). The winners of the play-in series will then fill spots six through eight in the opening round of the AJHL Playoffs.
Round One of the Inter Pipeline Cup AJHL Playoffs will begin the weekend of March 15th-17th and will be a best-of-seven series, with the top seed playing the lowest remaining seed. The AJHL Champion will represent Alberta at the 2024 Centennial Cup National Junior A Championship from May 9-19 in Oakville, ON.
All Alberta Junior Hockey League games will be broadcast live on FloHockey. A complete League Schedule is now available on the AJHL website alongside the updated League Standings reflecting an 11-team league.
The AJHL is a premier developmental league in Canada for student-athletes striving to capitalize on their athletic and academic abilities. AJHL players can advance to the NCAA, CHL, USports and pro hockey without any limitations.
