PHD Picks: PIHL Preseason

This week, our writers sat down and made our picks for the 2019-20 PIHL upcoming season. These were done by a varying number of formats: viewing teams in the pre-season, basing off of the 2018-19 season, Mitch’s Previews and, in some cases, pure guessing and coin-flips. It is not fair to assume that we could’ve seen every team in the preseason.
