The 2005–06 Southern Professional Hockey League season was the second season of the Southern Professional Hockey League. The regular season began October 21, 2005, and ended April 12, 2006, after a 56-game regular season and a six-team playoff. The Knoxville Ice Bears won their first SPHL championship.

PreseasonEdit

The Asheville Aces, Macon Trax[2], and Winston-Salem Polar Twins[3] all folded following the 2004-05 season. Replacing them were the Florida Seals[4] and Pee Dee Cyclones[5].

A new playoff structure was announced, with the top seed and sixth seed playing each other in a best-of-5-game series, with the winner advancing to the championship. The second and fifth, and third and fourth seeds each play a best-of-3-game series, with the winners meeting in another 3-game series to determine the second finalist.[6]
