This is the 2017-18 Southern Professional Hockey League season.  This is the league's 13th season.

Membership Changes[]

  • In early March 2017, the owner of the Columbus Cottonmouths, who had been trying to sell the team, announced that the team will cease operations after the 2016-17 season if a new owner is not found.  The team was reported to be in the process of being sold, however; it would not be in time to keep the team active for the 2017-18 season as the team announced they were suspending operations for the 2017-18 season. The Columbus Burn were supposed to be a replacement team to take up residence in the Columbus Civic Center. As of August 10, 2017 the SPHL announced it was no longer interested in working on adding the team to the league in a vote to terminate working with the team owner who had apparently mised a payment to the league on an expansion fee and then tried to re-negotiate the fee.
