2013-14 BCHL 

The 2012-13 BCHL season was the 51st season of the British Columbia Hockey League. (BCHL) The sixteen teams from the Coastal and Mainland Conferences will play 56 game schedules, starting with the 2012 BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack, BC.

Come March, the top teams from each division will play for the Fred Page Cup, the BCHL Championship. The winner of the Fred Page Cup will compete in the first-ever Western Canadian Junior A championship, the Western Canada Cup in Nanaimo, BC. If successful against the winners of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, Manitoba Junior Hockey League and the Western Canada Cup host, the champion and runner-up would then move on to play for the Canadian Junior Hockey League championship, the Royal Bank Cup, in Summerside, Prince Edward Island.

In their run to the RBC Cup, the Surrey Eagles would lose in the semifinals to the host Summerside Western Capitals

Changes[edit]

  • The Chilliwack Chiefs and Prince George Spruce Kings have been moved to the Coastal Conference
  • For the playoffs, the Mainland Division side of the bracket will start with a best-of-5 division semifinal and a best-of-5 division final, while the Interior Conference side will start with a best-of-seven conference semifinal. The conference finals on both sides and the Fred Page Cup Final will both remain a best-of-seven series.
  • The season has been reduced from 60 games to 56.
  • The season will start with a three day "BCHL Showcase," where all sixteen teams will play two games; One of which would be considered a home game.
  • The Westside Warriors have been renamed to the West Kelowna Warriors.
  • A team that ices the puck or shoots the puck over the glass in their defensive end will not be allowed to change during the ensuing stoppage. If said stoppage is the first stoppage past the ten minute mark of the period, the one-minute "sponsor time out" will still occur, but the offending team will still not be allowed to change.
