TORONTO - With the 2016/17 UUHA Regular Season in the books, the matchups for the opening round of the 2017 UUHA Playoffs have been determined.
The Jokers Hockey Club, having finished in 1st place, will take on the 8th place Humiliation, while the 2nd place Wheatfield Souldiers will face off against the 7th place Parkdale Porcupines. Meanwhile, the 3rd place Brockton Rockets will go up against the 6th place Gas Station Islanders, while the 4th place Parkdale Hockey Lads will face the 5th place Beau's Beer Hack - a rematch of last season's Championship Final, in which the Hack eked out an overtime victory.
Note: Although the Regular Season standings on the UUHA web site show the Gas Station Islanders listed ahead of the Hack, the league's determining criteria in the event of a points tie is decided first by the results of the teams' head-to-head games during the Regular Season. As the Hack won and tied vs. GSI, the Hack gets the edge in so far as playoff seeding is concerned.
