West Coast Senior Hockey League

The West Coast Senior Hockey League (WCSHL) is a senior ice hockey league based in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The league has been reported to be returning to play for the 2017-18 season with four teams including the Port-aux-Basques Mariners, Stephenville Jets, Deer Lake Red Wings, and the Corner Brook Royals.  This incarnation of the league has been reported to be stictly an amateur league with no imported players.  The league pushed up its start and played an abbreviated 12 games schedule with each team playing six games and their being a single game championship.

The league champion did not participate in the 2017 Herder Memorial Trophy tournament as the league was organized well after the format for the tournament was finalized.  The league will not try to compete for the Herder Memorial Trophy in 2018 either as the league is just getting organized and trying to cut down on expenses and all of the teams are relatively short rides from one another (three hours or less drive time in ideal weather).  The league was not even on the table for the Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador annual meeting agenda discussion on the Herder Tournament for 2018.


Herder Memorial Trophy Edit

The previous incarnation of the league would award to the victor of the playoffs each year is the Herder Memorial Trophy. The first team to ever win the Herder was the 1935 Corner Brook Royals.
