Following the conclusion of the Challenge Cup group stage on Sunday, the Elite League have confirmed the eight teams progressing to the Quarter-Finals.
The Stena Line Belfast Giants take the #1 spot and so we will choose our opposition from the teams placed fifth to eighth.
The full Quarter Finalists are as follows (in seeding order):
The teams placed 1-8 after the qualification stage of the Challenge Cup Competition play in the Quarter-Finals of the Challenge Cup in a two-legged aggregate scoring series of games, with the overall winner of each series progressing further in the competition.
By finishing ranked first after the qualification stage of the competition the highest seeded team (Belfast) has earned the right to choose its opposition from the teams placed fifth to eighth.
The second placed team (Cardiff) picks next from the team left in the 5-to-8-group, then the third placed team (Nottingham) picks from the teams left and finally, the team placed fourth after the qualification stage (Guildford) plays the team that has not been picked yet. Home Ice option remains with the first to fourth placed teams.
The draw for the Quarter-Finals will take place Tuesday and be streamed live on the EIHL’s Facebook Page.
The Group Stage ends & the Stena Line Belfast Giants take the #1 seed! We will choose our Quarter Final opponents tomorrow.
