The Eastern Hockey Federation (EHF) is an independent American Youth Minor ice hockey league. Established in early 2004, when the Bay State Breakers, Boston Jr. Eagles, Boston Jr. Terriers, Bridgewater Bandits, Middlesex Islanders, Minuteman Flames, Providence Capitals, South Shore Kings, and Top Gun left the Metropolitan Boston Hockey League.

Its stated goal is to foster and govern an elite amateur minor hockey league comprising the top youth hockey organizations in the region.


During the league's inaugural 2004-2005 season, ten programs committed to participate:

  • Bay State Breakers
  • Boston Jr. Bruins
  • Boston Jr. Eagles
  • Boston Jr. Terriers
  • Bridgewater Bandits
  • Middlesex Islanders
  • Minuteman Flames
  • Providence Capitals
  • South Shore Kings
  • Top Gun

During the Summer of 2005, the EHF announced that three new teams would be joining the league for the 2005-2006 season:

  • Connecticut Riptide
  • Portland Jr. Pirates
  • Brewster Bulldogs

In March 2006 the Eastern Hockey Federation's Board of Directors announced that the Exeter Freeze would be joining the League for the 2006-2007 season. The board also announced the establishment of a Western Division for the '06-07 season that would consist of two New York-based organizations—the Westchester Express and the Syracuse Stars.

Later that month, the EHF revealed that the 1A Division would be replaced by the AA Division with nine teams aligned to compete in that grouping:

  • Bay State Breakers
  • Bridgewater Bandits
  • Connecticut Riptide
  • Exeter Freeze
  • MassConn Braves
  • Minuteman Flames
  • New England Moose
  • Team Dynamic
  • Top Gun

Also, in 2009 the Boston Little Rangers were added to the EHF, and led by the star goalie, the 96's won the championship in their first year of existence.
