The United Hockey Union (UHU) is proud to announce that the Western States Hockey League (WSHL) will now be competing in North America as a Tier II hockey league in the UHU.
At their annual off-season League meeting, the WSHL Board of Governors voted in favor to accept and support the move to Tier II.
Due to the elevated caliber of play that the League has experienced over the past 4 years, the WSHL Board of Governors felt that the move was natural progression for the continued advancement of the League and its players.
The Board of Governors simultaneously have announced the formation of the Western Prospects League (WPL), which the UHU has approved Tier III status for the 2015-2016 season.
Ron White, the president and commissioner of the WSHL, is excited about the opportunities this transition brings.
“The League has grown in teams, exposure, and development and in caliber of play.
These advancements combined with the move to Tier II and the formation of the WPL are all elements that together will increase
the caliber of play and further enhance the brand of the WSHL.”
Since its inaugural season in 1994, the Western States Hockey League has expanded to twenty-eight teams that span Texas, Washington, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada as well as becoming a well-known provider of hockey development internationally.
Each year, the League facilitates hockey for over 850 players, allowing them to develop the skills and character to play hockey at higher levels
