The International Developmental Hockey League is a senior hockey league that will begin its inaugural season in October 2018 with teams in the Northeastern US and Canada.

The IDHL will serve as a feeder league to the FHL beginning in the 2018-2019 season. Players will be called up on a weekly basis to supplement the FHL rosters.

Shouldn't that be the other way around? Or its it senior in school?

Your confusion is justified.  A "senior hockey league" in the vernacular of Hockey Canada is an amateur adult league for former junior players who have "aged out" or players who simply want to continue in competitive hockey in their 20's and beyond.  USA Hockey typically refers to such leagues as "adult leagues."  I suppose we shouldn't expect hockey protocol to be observed nor much hockey knowledge to be displayed by someone associated with this wanna-be "feeder league" for the F(P)HL.

Next they need to update their schedule with Danbury removed, so us fans can plan appropriately for another riveting F(P)HL season.
