Season [ 2020-2021 ]  



"The Largest Youth Hockey League in Illinois"


The Northern Illinois Hockey League is excited to announce the new Premier Select Level of play, which will launch during the 2021 – 2022 season.


  Qualifying for the Premier Select Level will be based, solely, on a team’s on-ice performance during seeding round play or the teams’ previous year’s performance. 


This format will assure that only the strongest Tier II teams in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Iowa, playing in NIHL, will ascend to the highest level of play in the Midwest. 


 At the end of the season the new Premier Select Level’s divisions will join all the other NIHL divisions in our prestigious and well respected NIHL Blackhawks Tournament.
