Clark Cup PlayoffsEdit

FormatEdit

The top four teams in each conference qualify for the playoffs. The first place team plays the fourth place team and the second place team plays the third place team.  The conference semifinal winners meet in the conference finals and the conference finals winners meet in the Clark Cup Final.  All series are best-of-five.  As this is presently the only Tier-I junior league in the United States there are no further playoffs beyond the league final.
