3ICE professional hockey league to begin play in 2021

NEW ACTION PACKED 3 ON 3 PROFESSIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE, 3ICE, TO BEGIN PLAY IN 2021; LEAGUE NAMES HOCKEY HALL OF FAMER CRAIG PATRICK AS COMMISSIONER
(Highlights from Bell Media)

3ICE is a new and totally independent, three-on-three professional ice hockey league in North America, slated to begin play in June of 2021. TSN and RDS are the official Canadian media partners. 3ICE Games will air exclusively in the United States on CBS Sports Network, with the Championship Game airing on CBS Television Network.

3ICE is uniquely designed to give hockey fans the speed, skill and excitement they’ve grown to love since the three-on-three overtime concept was introduced in 2015. 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.

The inaugural 3ICE season tour will take place during the summer of 2021. The league will consist of eight teams with each team consisting of seven players (including one goalie) and a head coach. The traveling league will not have teams based in particular cities, instead all eight teams will visit each tour city and play in a bracket-style format to determine a champion at each and every tour stop. Overall each season will see 60 games per season, culminating in a final league championship game, giving fans the ultimate hockey experience.

Every player on a 3ICE roster will come from a professional hockey pedigree and each team will play at least one game each weekend.

That's actually a very cool idea! It will be interesting to see what sort of pedigree this league will attract. I hope they attract some of the former NHL'ers that are playing in Europe. There are some great players over there and the likelyhood of injury playing 3 on 3 is pretty non-existent. This might be the showcase these guys need to get back to the bigs.

P.S. Jaromir Jagr(47yo) is still playing over there and is someone that would thrive in this sort of play.

Thanks for the heads up Dr. Dave!

Curious how this plays out, but I'm wondering if icing to kill time will be a common thing with a running clock.
