New 3-on-3 ice hockey league set to begin play in 2021

Joe De Falco   ·   13 janvier 2020
Following the NHL's introduction of 3-on-3 overtime hockey in 2015, fans simply cannot get enough of the exciting action. So much so that even the 2019 NHL All-Star game featured 3-on-3 play.

Well, starting in June of 2021, fans will be able to enjoy the high intensity of 3-on-3 professional hockey consistently, through the formation of a new league, called 3ICE.

3ICE was founded by E.J. Johnston, son of former NHL goalie, coach, and executive Ed Johnston, alongside Hockey Hall of Famer Craig Patrick.

The league will consist of eight teams and travel to different cities during the summer. There will be a bracket-style tournament to determine a new champion at each stop.

The idea will be to get former NHLers and professional players to compete in the league.

3ICE spoke on their awaited arrival to the hockey world;

“Utilizing a full-sized rink, every game will consist of two, eight-minute halves using a running clock to keep the end to end action moving at an unprecedented pace.”

"Fans will have the chance to enjoy nine hockey filled weekends in nine different locations throughout the U.S. and Canada," Johnston said. "3ICE was created to bring the fans one thing ... pure, unadulterated excitement. Our players and coaches will be names and faces you know and love."

The league has signed television deals with CBS Sports(U.S.), TSN, and RDS (CA.)
