Fred Page Cup PlayoffsEdit
The playoffs will consist of the top 4 teams in each division qualifying for the playoffs with 1 playing 4 and 2 playing 3 in the best-of-seven division semifinals. The division semifinal winners will meet in the best-of-seven division finals. The three division winners will meet in a three team double round robin with the top two teams advancing to the best-of-seven Fred Page Cup final. In the round robin it continues until a first team has earned 3 wins and they advance to the final. The remaining two teams play until one of them has won 3 games. The Fred Page Cup winning team (or the runner up if it is the Penticton Vees) will advance to the 2017 Western Canada Cup which is being held in Penticton, British Columbia. The top two finishers in that tournament will qualify for the 2017 Royal Bank Cup which is being held in Cobourg, Ontario.
