3HL TOUR announces expansion for 2017/18 season

The 3HL TOUR is pleased to announce that the world’s first ever 3-on-3 professional hockey league will be adding four expansion teams for the upcoming 2017/18 season.

The Aurora Avalanche, Hamilton Steelers, Niagara Rapids and Simcoe County Clippers will join the 3HL in the league’s second season, which is an 18 event schedule running from October 2017 to May 2018.

“We are extremely excited to add four new teams for our second season,” said Director of Media Pat Gregoire. “We have already been to Aurora and Simcoe County(Collingwood) and both communities embraced the 3HL with open arms and wanted more. Hamilton and Niagara are both great hockey markets that are excited to see the new era of pro hockey that is the 3HL.”

Logos for the four expansion teams will be released over the upcoming weeks leading up to the 2017 3HL Entry Draft, which will take place on Thursday, August 3rd.

Three of the four expansion clubs have general managers in place to run the teams, but the Hamilton Steelers are still searching to fill the role of GM. Applicants with experience in hockey and/or sports management from the Greater Hamilton Area can send their resume and cover letter to hockey@3HLTOUR.com.
