    Welcome to the official website of the Platinum Masters Hockey League!

    The Platinum Masters League plays on nearly every Sunday night (with holidays off) throughout the year at the Arctic Coliseum in Chelsea, Michigan.  The league is for players 50 years old and older (though some current players are in their mid to late 40s).

    The winter season runs from the beginning of October through the end of April, and the summer season runs from May through September.

    Each season, teams are drafted by captains to ensure a competitive balance.  Each team has 10 skaters and a goalie.  Players are given ratings based on their draft position, and substitute players are allowed with equal or lesser ratings.

    The teams finishing in the top half of the regular season standings play the teams in the bottom half of the standings in a round robin playoff.  The four teams with the most playoff points play in the semi-finals, and the winners go on to play for the Platinum Masters Cup and Championship!

    For more information, please contact the league's e-mail:
