The NAPA Cup playoffs will be held after the completion of the regular season with

The playoff champion (or runner-up if the Saint-Jérôme Panthers win the league playoffs) will advance to the 2020 Fred Page Cup which will be held in Saint-Jerome, Quebec hosted by the Saint-Jérôme Panthers of the Quebec Junior Hockey League. The winner of that tournament advances to the 2020 Centennial Cup being held at Stride Place in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba hosted by the Portage Terriers of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

Format[edit | edit source]

The top twelve teams qualify. Each team plays six games in a crossover round robin weighted to favor the higher seeded teams. The top six teams from the regular season made up one pool and teams seven through twelve make up the other pool. Each team plays the teams in the other pool once. The top eight teams advance to the quarterfinals. The quarterfinal, semifinal and final rounds are best-of-seven series.

Only one game of the league playoffs were played before the playoffs were cancelled. The St. Jerome Panthers defeated the Terrebonne Cobras 3-2 in overtime.
