Atlantic Coast Hockey League


Atlantic Coast Hockey League

::"ACHL redirects here. For the Appellate Committee of the House of Lords in the United Kingdom, see Judicial functions of the House of Lords."

The Atlantic Coast Hockey League was a minor league hockey organization that operated between 1981 and 1987. Beginning in 1988 the league merged with the All-American Hockey League to create the East Coast Hockey League (today the ECHL).

In 2002, a second organization to carry the ACHL name was formed. This league would last only one season, and was notable for the early-season move of the St. Petersburg Parrots to Winston-Salem, NC. After a bitter split among the franchises, the league split into two new leagues, the South East Hockey League and World Hockey Association 2. The two leagues would rejoin for the 2004-05 season as the Southern Professional Hockey League.

The Orlando Seals won the ACHL's only regular season and playoff championships.
