The Eastern States Collegiate Hockey League (ESCHL) was created in 2007. The league is made up of 5 teams in the Northeast and mid atlantic region of the US. The Teams play at the ACHA Division I level.


League Teams play a 20 game league schedule consisting of 4 games against each of the other league teams. League Playoffs are held in February with the top 4 teams qualifying for the playoffs. ESCHL Champions receive an automatic bid to the ACHA Men's Division I National Tournament.


Penn State University has won the first two playoff championships over the University of Delaware in both 2008 and 2009. The regular season title was shared by Penn State, Delaware, and the University of Rhode Island in the 2008-2009 with each team finishing with 25 points in the standings.[1] For the 2010–11 season, Navy and Drexel will leave the ESCHL to join the Eastern Collegiate Hockey Association and Robert Morris University will join the conference.
