The parking lot and street games are long gone, but the passion and desire to play competitive hockey resides in our hearts and minds.., now it's just played through aging, sore, and over-weight bodies.
"In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years."

It has been six months since Paul's stroke and one month since the last update. On October 30th, Paul was seen at Tufts Medical Center to be reevaluate for his swallowing. Unfortunately, he did not receive the best of news. Paul will require additional SPL therapy and is working with a speech/swallow specialist at MGH-Danvers where he will be re assessed in January.
About one week after his appointment, Paul was diagnosed with pneumonia due to aspiration, He was admitted to North Shore Medical Center for five days where he was treated and released back to Pilgrim Rehabilitation were he continues to recover and regain his strength. Paul has experienced several setbacks in his recovery and he continues to push forward each time he is pushed back. Paul works hard in all his therapies and prior to this last set back, Paul was standing and balancing on the parallel bars and was close to taking steps prior to his pneumonia.
Paul is looking forward to make some progress once he is strong enough to get back on his feet. Paul is still very humbled and overwhelmed by all of your support and donations since his Stroke and loves you all dearly.
Please keep Paul in your thoughts and prayers, especially now since the holidays are upon us. With that being said, I would like to ask if you have the time to text him a message or send him a card with your own personal message to keep his spirits up and motivation strong.
You can send your card to:
Pilgrim Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Facility 96 Forest St Peabody, MA 01960 c/o Paul Correia room#101

New Weekly Award
When your turn 50 you get to look forward to two things.., a colonoscopy and your AARP membership card in the mail.
Now the Over-30 League is giving our senior players something else to look forward to each week with the new Over-50 players (only) weekly award.., with the new “Almost Approaching Retirement Player” of the week.
This small recognition is a two-fold award. One part is the recognition that you’re still competing at a recognizable level of play.., and the second part is you’re probably scared of retirement and social security income.., so we are awarding a $5 Scratch Ticket to the Over-50 weekly player with the hopes of adding to his retirement income. This could be your Over-30 League pension if you’re lucky enough like recently eligible defensemanMatty Iannello.
This single vote caster shall remain totally anonymous so as to not be bribed, threatened, coerced, or intimidated into voting for a particular player.., as we don’t want any collusion or potential meddling by the Russians.
Most of all.., these young “Whippersnappers” can’t win the award.., even if you 49-years and 364-days old.., you’re too young and you can’t win. You have to be 50!
Players Of The Week
A.A.R.P. Old timer award 1-16-2021 - Tony Bono
Dunkin Donuts Player Of The Week
Five Guys Player Of The Week
DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER OF THE WEEK 1-16-21
This week's Dunkin Donuts winner goes to Ray Dow of Drama Queens. How much did the former defenseman turned forward make an impact in his game? All Ray did was factor in on all four goals his team scored, with 2-goals and 2-assists. In the process, Ray extended his overall lead in the leading scorer's race. Halfway through the season, Ray is chasing league history trying to become the first defensman to ever win the leading scorer title.
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 1-16-21
This week's Five Guys winnergoes to Tony Bono of Drama Queens. When work prevents Tony from playing on a regular basis, when he can play, he seamlessly fits right in, usually on defense. Once again Tony had a solid game on defense, controlling his defensive zone, keeping shots away from his goalie, and making smart breakout passes.
DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER(s) OF THE WEEK 1-9-21
This week's Dunkin Donuts co-winner goes to Todd Bryson of Jake-O-Lanterns. After missing his team's first four games, Todd has made his return presence felt in a big way. His latest effort had him impact three straight goals for his team, scoring the tying goal, set up the go-ahead power play goal in the second period on a sweet pass, then set up another insurance goal.
