Membership ChangesEdit

  • None, the Indiana Ice continue to be on hiatus as they pursue a new home in the Indianapolis area.
  • The ownership of the Missouri Mavericks ECHL team (which is based in the eastern (Missouri) suburb of Kansas City, Missouri) have reportedly been looking at building a smaller hockey venue in a Kansas suburb of Kansas City to become the location of a future USHL team. The ECHL team may become dormant as an AHL team may be moving into the Sprint Center in Kansas City for the 2017-18 season. The move may open the possibility of a team playing in Independence, Missouri in a shorter time frame.

Standings to be added upon completion of the regular season.  The league regular season champion is awarded the Anderson Cup.

Clark Cup PlayoffsEdit


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.
