CALENDAR YEAR END PRACTICES AND PLAYOFFS
The information in the following table outlines the schedule for House League practices and games in the upcoming weeks. The playoff schedules for House League divisions are also now posted on the Schedules and Standings page. For the divisions with 6 teams (Novice, MA / Atom Tier 2 and PeeWee) the quarter finals commence this Sunday, February 28th. For those divisions, the play-off match ups have been determined based on the standings as of February 21st and, where necessary, the ranking / tie breaking factors set out in Article 11 of the Knights Rules (available on the website). Other division playoff rankings and team schedules will be determined in the same manner for the purposes of the Semi-Finals after the games on March 6th.

Please note that March 5th will be the last day of regularly scheduled practices for all Knights House League teams, subject to the following caveats:
1) Tykes/ MN – the Knights do not currently have the permit for Pleasantview Arena for March 5th. Accordingly, the four (4) Tyke / MN teams which practice on Saturday mornings at Pleasantview at 7:10 am and 8:10 am, will for March 5th only practice instead at Oriole Arena at 4:10- 4:55 pm and 4:55 – 5:45pm, respectively (45 minute practices with no flood in between); and
2) while we have no House League ice on March 12th and the regular Saturday practice ice will largely be used for the 1st games of the Semi Finals on March 19th , to the extent that we have any Saturday ice on April 2nd we will try for the Finals to allocate any such available practice ice on an equitable basis to teams still in the playoffs.
