The Hockey Super League was established in the winter of 2017 giving youth players an alternative option to Minor Hockey in Alberta. The HSL is not a registered league with Hockey Canada or Hockey Alberta, we are independent of these organizations. We believe that hockey is defined by the people who play game.
Our inaugural season had a total of 9 teams from 5 separate franchises that competed in two divisions, 'UP2 05' for players born after 2005 and 'UP2 07' for players born after 2007. After a successful inaugural campaign, the 2018-19 HSL season will feature a total of 33 teams across 6 divisions. HSL teams span across Alberta from Fort McMurray to Drumheller, including 11 teams from the South and 22 teams from the North.
The 2018-19 HSL season will also see the release of the HSL Prep division. The HSL Prep division will showcase some of the top 2005 and 2006 born players from around Alberta. This division will feature many new and exciting initiatives including: modified checking, a 24 game regular season schedule to allow for teams to travel to other tournaments and showcases, skills summits, and player profile packages.
All stakeholders in the Hockey Super League will work in collaboration to create an environment to establish the following core values in its athletes:
League games will take place in a Showcase format, meaning that each of the teams will play four games over the course of a weekend at least once a month.
