FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE JANUARY 22, 2014  
 
The Rifles are extremely excited to announce a new Elite Tier 1 affiliation starting in the 2014-2015 season.

 The Elite 9 Hockey League will feature the top 9 Tier I Elite teams in New England. The E9 will feature 6 charter members – Seacoast Spartans, New Hampshire Avalanche, East Coast Wizards, Boston Advantage, Boston Jr Rangers and Valley Jr Warriors – plus the 3 top teams at each age level from the Boston Hockey League (BHL). In addition to the 6 charter members the following 9 teams will compete in the BHL - Patriots, VT Glades, RI Saints, Lovell Knights, Northern Cyclones, Springfield Rifles, Worcester Sharks, Advantage Ice and Pro Ambitions. Affiliate members will participate in the Boston Hockey League and will compete in the BHL's September Parity Play-In Tournament to determine which 3 teams from the BHL at each age level will be placed into the Elite 9. An automatic bid into the Elite 9 for the 2014-15 season will be awarded to any team that wins the 2013-14 NEHL American Conference Regular Season Title. The BHL will be split into 2 Tiers – American and National Conferences – in order to offer the highest degree of parity for all teams and programs in the league. Conference seeding for the 2014-15 BHL Season will also be based upon the BHL September Parity Play-In Tournament results.

 “This will allow our youth teams the opportunity to compete against some of the very best teams in New England”, said Brian Foley.
