The Eastern States Hockey League (ESHL) was an American Tier III Junior ice hockey league. It stated goal is that it develops high school age players to hockey skills needed for higher levels of Junior, college hockey, and professional hockey. On Labor Day 2011, the Continental Hockey Association officially changed its name to the Eastern States Hockey League.[1] After the 2012–13 season, the ESHL disbanded after several teams left to join the newly renamed Eastern Hockey League or one of the newly formed United States Premier Hockey League Elite or Empire Divisions.
