This is the 2015-16 Avalon East Senior Hockey League season.  This is the league's 49th season dating back to its founding in 1967.

On September 20, 2015 upon completion of their fall meeting Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador announced that two leagues had been approved for the 2015-16 playing season, Avalon East Senior Hockey League and the Newfoundland & Labrador Senior A Hockey League. The two league champions will complete for the Herder Memorial Trophy and a berth as the provinces representative for the Atlantic regional championship for qualification for the 2017 Allan Cup which will be held in Kenora, Ontario. The tournament will have the two league champions play a best-of-five series to determine the winner. The champion of the NLSAHL will host games one and two on March 19 and 20, 2016. The Avalon East League champion will game 3 on March 25th and if needed games 4 and 5 on March 26 and 27. The release announcing the playoff also stated that "The Avalon East winning team will be permitted six (6) strengthening players from their own league for Herder competition."

The league semifinal series involving the Bell Island Blues and the Northeast Eagles has had several cancellations due to high winds causing issues with ferry service in the area.
