As the 2011-2012 GARHL regular season winds down we now focus on the playoffs.Â Just a few reminders.
First, the minimum amount of games played to be eligible for the playoffs is eight (8).Â Official “games played” are listed in the stats part of the website.
Second, any regular season suspensions that occur will carry over into the playoffs.Â Any post season suspensions in the upcoming playoffs will carry over into the 2012-2013 season.
Third, the GARHL Playoffs will begin on Monday March 5.Â Please have your team prepared to play on this day. Depending on the Guelph Storm and Guelph Hurricanes playoff drives we will have to finish the season the week of April 9.
Finally, the GARHL playoff format is based on regular season performance, with all series being a best of three games based on wins.Â The first team to two wins will advance.Â The highest seed will play the lowest seed in the first round.Â For example, 1vs 8, 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6, 4 vs 5.Â In the 2nd round the seeds carry over so the higher seed will play the lowest seeded team left in the semi finals and the 2nd highest seed will play the 3rd higest seed.Â More playoff rules will follow with each team just before the playoffs start.
Good luck to all teams!
