The Black Diamond Hockey League (BDHL) is a Semi Professional ice hockey league consisting of teams from the Western United States. Teams compete for the Joe Casey Cup - named in honor of former Jackson Hole Moose team captain who died suddenly at the age of 37.
The league was founded in 2014 with four member clubs: Bozeman Stingers, Jackson Hole Moose, Park City Pioneers and Sun Valley Suns. Teams played a 12-game schedule followed by a single-elimination playoff with the winner awarded the Joe Casey Cup.
In the first-ever league game Jackson Hole shut out Park City 4-0.
Jackson Hole Moose upset regular season winner Sun Valley, who were a perfect 12-0, to capture the first league championship.
Season two in the BDHL saw the end of an era with the Park City Pioneers folding. The league replaced the team with the Missoula Desperados to remain at four teams.
Sun Valley Suns avenged their championship loss by defeating Jackson Hole for the 2016 title.
