    In an effort to provide quality ice hockey and consistent competition for organizations in the New York, Connecticut and New Jersey markets the Metro Elite Hockey League was born.

    This USA Hockey member’s league has been designed for organizations which desire quality competition in a reasonable geographic footprint. This league will follow USAH rules Mite thru Midget 18U.

    The Metro Elite Hockey League will be split into two divisions; Tier I AAA and Tier II AA. The AAA division will field teams that can compete at the AAA level and those teams will compete by birth year. The Tier II AA division will be further split into AA Gold for the teams that can compete at the Tier II AA Major level and the AA Silver will be for those teams competing better at a Minor or “second team” level. The AA division will compete at Major levels, combining the two appropriate birth years, broken up into Gold and Silver divisions.

    The founding members in Connecticut are: Connecticut Junior Rangers and Greenwich Skating Club. Founding members in New York are: P.A.L. Junior Islanders, P.A.L. Blue Knights, P.A.L. Silver Knights, Westchester Vipers, New York Junior Aviator, Brooklyn Aviator, Hudson Valley Polar Bears, Nassau County Lions, Ice Cat Amateur Hockey Club and Great Neck Hockey. Founding members in New Jersey are: New Jersey Hitmen, New Jersey Bandits, Brick Hockey Club.

    The league flexibility and close proximity for these member organizations make this League a natural fit for almost any organization. Regardless, if you are independent or in a league, the Metro Elite Hockey League can provide great hockey while promoting skill development.

    The MEHL is accepting new members. Please contact us at for more information.
