Scottish Ice Hockey confirms play-off seedings

Due to a backlog of fixtures the Scottish Ice Hockey Association has been working towards finding a solution to ensure the season is completed on time.

With regular season games and Scottish Cup semi-finals still to be played, the board were faced with a dilemma over seedings for the play-off quarter-final ties.

Just two points separates the top three sides in the SNL, but issues over ice availability has left some important games still to be rearranged.

To ensure that the Play-off Weekend and Scottish Cup Finals events scheduled for April can take place on time, it has been decided that the league standings after the completion of the games on Sunday, 11th March, will be used to determine the play-off seedings.

The play-off quarter-final line-up will be as follows:

Dundee Comets (1) v Dundee Tigers (8)
Kirkcaldy Kestrels (2) v Kilmarnock Storm (7)
Paisley Pirates (3) v Moray Typhoons (6)
Edinburgh Capitals SNL (4) v Aberdeen Lynx (5)

Full fixture details for these matches will be confirmed in due course.
