Adelaide will become Australia’s first professional hockey league host.
The National Hockey Super League (NHSL) is Australia’s professional ice hockey league. It consists of three teams. The goal is to have 15 teams in Australia by 2023.
In the first year, the NHSL will have three teams, mainly composed of South Australian players, but will be expanded to the national competition system next summer to showcase the best talent that Australia has to offer.
The names of the first three teams are Noarlunga Stars, Port Adelaide Brewers and Adelaide XTreme. Each team cited South Australia or the hockey community in that state.
The game will be played in front of the IceArenA crowd on Friday night. The game will be an enjoyable and fun family experience that will highlight fast-paced action ice hockey activities.
The alliance will adopt a rulebook similar to the NHL.
Three famous South Australian ice hockey figures will be appointed as general managers, responsible for managing each team. The task of the general manager is to find a coach and select their team from the registered players.
Each general manager can sign two important players to form his own team, but the players cannot be from the same club during the IHSA season.
The season is expected to start in early November. The general manager has confirmed and will be announced soon. Draft dates, team names, and league rules will be announced soon.
