BOSTON, MA -- On the eve of the first game of the season, the Eastern Hockey League (EHL) and Eastern Hockey League Premier (EHLP) are excited to see what unfolds over the next seven months.
With 32 total teams, 8 showcases, 3 All-Star Games, and the 2020 Frozen Finals, this upcoming year is shaping up to be the largest to date.
As we get set to start writing the next chapter of #Eshow history, we will welcome in a new wave of players. Annually the EHL and EHLP see a few hundred new players come through the different doors across the league, but at the foundation of every team is a small core of returning players looking to continue with their development.
Below you will find a list of 25 players to watch this season in the EHL. The list includes players that will be hitting the ice for either their 2nd or 3rd year in the league, as well as players who will be making the jump up from the EHLP to the EHL. This group of talented individuals will lean on their past experiences to help guide their new teammates through endeavors that they've never encountered before.
The hockey season is a marathon, and we hope you enjoy every step along the way as we begin the journey to Providence.
