Playoffs start Thursday July 11 and will go through until Thursday August 8.  

Format is double knockout and best of 3 finals like prior years.  See brackets below showing the game numbers associated with each tier and stage.  

Skaters need to play 7 games and goalies need to play 3 games in order to qualify for playoffs. However, players playing on multiple teams have additional eligible requirements for the lower tiered team due to import rules.  

 All game requirements are assuming that the player will qualify for the highest team that they play on.  If they don't qualify then the game requirement is reduced to the next requirement down (ie. 15 game requirement becomes 10 game requirement and 10 game requirement becomes 6 game requirement).  Exceptions will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
