With just less than two weeks remaining before the beginning of the 2021-22 PJHL Playoffs, six teams have clinched a playoff spot and only two spots remain.
In the Tom Shaw Conference, the North Vancouver Wolf Pack, Delta Ice Hawks, and Richmond Sockeyes have all earned a playoff berth. The White Rock Whalers and the Grandview Steelers are still potentially able to nab the fourth and final playoff spot in the conference. White Rock has the inside track with 49 points from 40 games to Grandview’s 36 points from 37 games.
In the Harold Britain Conference, the Langley Trappers, Ridge Meadows Flames, and Chilliwack Jets have all earned a playoff birth. The Aldergrove Kodiaks and Mission City Outlaws are neck and neck for the fourth berth in the conference with Grandview able to crossover should they have more points than either of those two teams.
There is a tiebreaking procedure in place for the playoff seeding: For purposes of determining the top teams, the team having the greater number of points shall be awarded the higher position. In the event that two or more teams are tied with the same number of points, then the higher position shall be awarded to the team having won the greater number of games. Should the teams have won the same number of games, then the higher position shall be awarded to the team having the best goals for and against average (determined by taking the goals for and subtracting the goals against). Should the teams be tied in all of the foregoing circumstances, then the higher position will be awarded to the team with the best record against each other.
The Delta Ice Hawks will host the 2022 Cyclone Taylor Cup and have earned an automatic berth in the tournament. The winner of the Stonehouse Cup will also advance unless Delta is the PJHL Champion, then the runner-up will take the second PJHL berth. The link below is the bracket for the PJHL Playoffs.
