Canalta Cup PlayoffsEdit

FormatEdit

The top ten teams in the league standings qualify for the playoffs.  The top 6 teams get a first round bye and the 7th seed plays the 10th seed and the 8th seed plays the 9th seed in best-of-five series. The first round winners are re-seeded 7th and 8th.  The balance of the tournament is best-of-seven.  The division winners are seeded 1-2-3 (based on points and tie-breakers) for the quarterfinal round only.  The semifinal matchup and home ice for the last two rounds are based on points.

The Canalta Cup winning team will advance to the 2017 Western Canada Cup 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.
