The league began play as a semi-pro weekend-only league with 4 teams for the 2003-04 season. Four teams started the season:

  • Jamestown Titans
  • Mohawk Valley Comets
  • Poughkeepsie Panthers (later known as the Connecticut Cougars)
  • York IceCats

The season began in November, with high scoring (it was not uncommon to see teams score 10-12 goals apiece) games being the norm. The Poughkeepsie franchise was relocated to Connecticut (due to lack of attendance) and renamed the Cougars between Christmas and New Year. They played out the remainder of the season as a travel team when negotiations with the arena fell through.

The league was having financial problems and the Comets decided 2 days before the playoff weekend that they were not going to participate.

With the Comets as the league regular season leaders they were to get a bye straight to the finals, which was to be played on Sunday. York and Jamestown (the second and third place teams) were to play on the Saturday to see who went on to face the Comets. Once the Comets had informed the league that they would not be playing, the league changed the playoff structure. York and Jamestown would play a 2 game series that weekend. If there were a tie after the 2 games they would play a 20-minute mini game.

York won the opening game, 8-5. Jamestown defeated York 9-1 in the second game and then won a 20-minute tiebreaker game 6-1. As league champions, the Titans received the Herb Brooks Memorial Trophy. Image:Miracle on Ice -colin healy. ...

The Continental Professional Hockey League (ConPHL) was a short-lived low-level professional hockey league with teams in Canada and the United States. ...

The regular 44-game season was supposed to start in early November 2005, was postponed, saw 6 games played, and was cancelled in mid-December 2005. The four scheduled teams were:

  • St. Catharines IceCats
  • Philadelphia Comets (travel team)
  • Pittsburgh Pounders
  • Sault Ste. Marie Stampede
