EHL’s Cyclones, Monarchs headed for Tier III Nationals

The Eastern Hockey League champion Northern Cyclones and runner-up New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs will both take part in USA Hockey’s Junior Tier III National Championships to be contested this Thursday through Monday in Simsbury, CT. The Monarchs rebounded from their five-game EHL championship series loss to the Cyclones to earn the final at-large berth by defeating Metro Junior Hockey League runner-up Boston Jr. Rangers, 6-0, Sunday.

 

Twelve teams from nine leagues across the country will take part. The EHL, Minnesota Junior Hockey League, and North American Hockey League 3 both have two representatives while the United States Premier Hockey League will send the champions of each of their three divisions — Premier, Elite and Empire.
