History edit

The Triangular League followed a similar pattern to the Intercollegiate Hockey League, which had existed before World War I but rather than expand to include other teams as they had previously, the Trianular league remained a 3-team conference. The future Ivy League squads were typically considered the cream of college ice hockey during the 1920s and, as a result, the League champion would often claim to be the Eastern hockey champion.[1] The League lasted seven years and ended when Harvard and Princeton discontinued their season series in 1927.[2]
