This is one of the features of the Magnus League: mainly for economic reasons (hockey clubs depend heavily on match revenues), there are 44 “normal” matches in the season; play-offs (for title) or play-downs (for maintenance) from 1 March or the French Cup (up to five rounds between the end of October and the end of January).
Add in potential replay posters and you’ll understand why the Spartans are currently playing three games a week. One hundred leagues from the D1 calendar (2nd French division), where Luc Tardif Junior’s men still played last year.
We rest with three games a week and get on the ice to prepare for the next game. Luc Tardif Junior
