    There has been some rumblings about players looking to play some hockey during the playoffs if they are not currently in a playoff race. It has been a few seasons since LG and I have ran an IHL event, therefore I'd like to gauge the communities interest.

    For this event I'd like to change the format, rather than run the traditional 6v6 tournaments we run, I want to run this event as 3v3. It brings exposure to this mode as well as allows us to showcase more individual skill and creativity.

    The event will run from Jan 6th to Jan 24th. Week one will be Jan 6-9. Week two will be Jan 13-16. The playoffs will be BO3 Tournament style from Jan 21-23.

    Rosters will be made up of 11 players, 9 skaters 2 goalies.

    Team selections will all be done via a draft.

    This event will be open to the NHL-AHL-CHL players who ARE NOT:
    -Participating in CanAm
    -Participating in WJC
    -Currently in the second round of the playoffs
    -Under a ban from any current LG League

    In order for me to run this event, I'd need a 100 votes from players who are interested in this event.

    Any questions post them below!

    Please no give me something I’m good at, and not just traps and turds. 3s are fun and honestly refreshing so I’m all for this.

    Would love to see an LG style 3v3 league on PSN. I'm a huge fan of 3's, though I'm not 100% sure how many share my feelings

    Why not just make a World Cup and open it up to AHL and NHL players not currently participating in playoffs?

    It's not as exclusive as the Can-Am (which is counter-intuitive to the strategy of retaining and growing the player base developmentally or otherwise), and there are enough players to make it a fairly big thing during the off-season.

    Yes, but it's a 3s tourney (I'm assuming your answer to that new FB 3s league.

    Why can't we just have a normal 6s format tournament similar to WJC? From my recollection, people have been asking for it for a few seasons nows

    The FB has a 3s league? The league is irrelevant to me and not even on our radar as competitors to LG

    I’ve always wanted to run 3s events. This is something new that could be fun and is also something a lot of people have asked for, for several seasons

    I'd keep it 6v6 and call it the World Cup Of Hockey using all 3 leagues... You can also do a Winter Olympics just using CHL players too ... Do these every 4 seasons as it replicates how the World Cup of Hockey and Winter Olympics happen every four years ... I would of course keep the WJC for every off season as it is now... I just think would be cool to have a WCOH and Olympics tournaments as special events....

    Also I'd like to add... maybe include a Winter Classic game for LGHL once a year. I'm sure that this is possible and I would imagine guys would be interested in participating in this. If EA were to add a Winter Classic arena to use in World of Chel would be even better. Still you can also make this a special event every year. Just a thought...

    Based on the votes, IHL will be 3v3. More information will be released today.

    Thanks to everyone who voted.
