PLAYOFF FORMAT:

The following describes how each round will be structured. All series will be best-of-seven.

  • Island Division: The top-four teams will make the playoffs with the No. 1-seed facing the No. 4-seed and the No. 2-seed facing the No. 3-seed in Round 1. The winners will advance to the Division finals. The winner of the Division finals will advance to play the winner of the Mainland Division.
  • Mainland Division: The top-four teams will make the playoffs with the No. 1-seed facing the No. 4-seed and the No. 2-seed facing the No. 3-seed in Round 1. The winners will advance to the Division finals. The winner of the Division finals will advance to play the winner of the Island Division.
  • Interior Division: Six teams will qualify for the playoffs, including a possible crossover team* from the Mainland Division. With the teams ranked No. 1 to No. 6, the top-two seeds will get a first-round bye. The Round 1 matchups will see the No. 3-seed facing the No. 6-seed and the No. 4-seed facing the No. 5-seed. In Round 2, the No. 1-seed (having had a bye) will face the lowest-seeded team to advance. The No. 2-seed (having had a bye) will face the other team that advances.
  • *Should the fifth-place team in the Mainland Division have more points than the sixth-place team from the Interior, the Mainland team will cross over to the Interior and play as the No. 6-seed in Round 1.
  • Once the Interior determines its champion, that team will play the winner of the Island-Mainland best-of-seven in the Fred Page Cup BCHL Finals.

Fred Page Cup BCHL Finals is a best-of-seven - Winner will advance to the Western Canada Cup

Western Canada Cup Tournament - Two teams will advance to the Royal Bank Cup Tournament (National Championship)
