The Lightning High School Hockey League (LHSHL) will operate its inaugural season in 2015-2016. The LHSHL was originally known as The Florida High School Hockey Association (FHSHA). In April 2015, the FHSHA member teams voted to turn over control of the league to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Effective May 1, 2015, the FHSHA officially turned over all operating and governing control to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the LHSHL was formed.
The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Lightning High School Hockey League are dedicated to providing student athletes the best opportunities to train and succeed at the highest possible level.
