Montreal Loss + Toronto Loss = Edmonton clinches a Playoff Berth

Ottawa Win + Losses by Montreal AND Toronto = Ottawa clinches a Playoff Berth and a home playoff date.

Hamilton Win + Losses by Montreal AND Toronto = Hamilton clinches a Playoff Berth and a home playoff date via a tie-breaker based on record among games played against potentially tied clubs


Calgary has clinched first place in the West Division and will host the Western Final.

BC and Winnipeg have clinched Playoff Berths


All four East Division clubs can still make the playoffs and finish anywhere from 1st to 4th.

With a Montreal and a Toronto loss a West Division team will cross-over into the East Division. This would be the ninth time in 21 years since the cross-over rule was created in 1996, all being West to East.

No East Division team can be eliminated this week even with a loss.

Second place in the West Division and the Western Semi-Final home playoff game cannot be settled in Week 17. BC, Winnipeg and Edmonton can still host the game.

Saskatchewan has been eliminated from playoff contention.
