Beaver County Hockey League
By: Bryce Migliore
This is a hockey league based in Beaver County,Pa. And I did came up with the idea when I was still living back in Midland,Pa. The league will have teams across Beaver County from South Side to Ellwood City (Beaver/Lawrence Counties). And I can get credit for the BCHL since I came up with the idea. And the playoffs/finals are based off of the NHL format. The teams that are part of the league can add NHL (National Hockey League), AHL (American Hockey League), ECHL (East Coast Hockey Legaue), OHL (Ontario Hockey League) players. It can play his first season soon like by 2040.
There can be teams from Allegheny County (Pa), Washington County (Pa), Hancock County (WV), Lawrence County (Pa), Butler County (Pa), & Columbiana County (OH). The playoffs format (round 1 will have 4 teams from the 2 conferences, then the 2 teams that win 4 games will play each other in round 2, then the team who wins 4 game will advance to the conference finals (Midland vs South Side for example for the Ohio River Conference & Beaver Area vs Beaver Falls for example for the Beaver River Conference) the team who wins the Ohio River Conference Finals & the team who wins the Beaver River Conference Finals will face each other in the BCHL Finals). There are 2 conferences in the BCHL and they are the Ohio River Conference & the Beaver River Conference. And congrats to the Pittsburgh Penguins for beating the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game 5 on April 20,2017 & they won by a score of 5-2 & they advanced to Round 2 (they won the series 4-1) & I hope they don't play the Washington Capitals since if they do have to play against the Capitals then I hope that Pittsburgh will win (they will play whoever wins the Toronto/Washington series).
You can have teams with different name from their other sports (like you can name the Lincoln Park team the Midland Leopards as an example). You can sell the BCHL merch on the BCHL store & from other places & also from local businesses. I'm not to get into how the salary & contracts stuff is going to work. You can have a team form Wellsville,Ohio & a team from New Castle,Pa in the league. This league can also be under the umbrella of the NHL (National Hockey League), USHL (United States Hockey League), & the Pennsylvania Hockey League (PAHL). The league can also be affiliated with the Ohio Hockey League (OHHL), Pennsylvania Hockey League (PAHL), Connecticut Hockey League (CTHL), & also the WJHA (World Junior Hockey Association & im not sure if the WJHA is real). The teams can be affiliated with the NHL, AHL, ECHL , PAHL, OHHL, OHL, CTHL, & other hockey leagues (like if 1 team was an affiliate of the Las Vegas Golden Knights for example (Vegas Golden Knights will start playing during the 17’-18’ NHL season) and they could keep their original colors for use the Vegas Golden Knights colors).
