The schedule currently does not include dates for the BCHL Showcase, where each team plays two regular-season games. A full Showcase schedule will be announced at a later date.

This year’s schedule includes 83 per cent prime-night games on Fridays and Saturdays. This includes a handful of buildings that restrict Friday and Saturday game nights. The Cranbrook Bucks play all but 2 (1 Wednesday and 1 Sunday) of their home games on Fridays and Saturdays.

Before the pandemic, the league hovered around 65 per cent over five years.

There are also 3.41 days for every one regular-season game due to the extended season length. Pre-COVID, the league was at 2.95 days for every one regular-season game over five years.

This allows for more practices, gym time and more recovery time for BCHL athletes, bringing the schedule closer to a college hockey format.

An exhibition schedule will be announced at a later date.
