News & Happenings in the Scholastic Hockey League

By Evan Poulakidas

With the coming 2017-18 season the Scholastic Hockey League (SHL) has adopted a 3 on 3, five minute overtime for games that end in a tie. Should the teams still be tied after the 3 on 3 the teams will go directly to a sudden death shoot out. This applies only to Varsity games; the JV games will still be decided by a 3 man shoot out.

Carmel of Indiana has become a full member in the SHL at both the Varsity and JV level. The teams will participate in a complete schedule with playoffs. Carmel is one of the premiere high school hockey programs in Indiana.

Long time JV Coach at Glenbrook North, Rich Blakey, has stepped down to devote his efforts to the growing Northbrook Bluehawk program. Rich has the led GBN JV to multiple Scholastic Cup Championships.  Jeff Marks will assume the JV duties at GBN.

The SHL is looking for camera and sound men to help run the SHL Game of Week, this is a paid position so if interested please contact Evan Poulakidas at
