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.

Paul Correia recovery updates - February 22, 2021
February 22, 2021
"Family and Friends,
It has been almost 8 weeks since the last update on Paul's stroke recovery. Since May 5th, 2020, Paul has been hospitalized at Tufts Medical Center, Spaulding Rehabilitation, North Shore Medical Center, and for the last 6 months he has been receiving care and therapy at Pilgrim Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center in Peabody, MA.
Paul has had many ups and downs and several setbacks during his rehab at both Spaulding and Pilgrim. Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Paul had been limited to his room while participating in physical and occupational therapy due to an outbreak at the facility last November. Since then, Paul's rehab has been limited in the amount and type of therapy he had been receiving. Due to these circumstances, and after 288 days - Paul came home on February 16th, where he will receive home care and therapy three to four times a week.
We are extremely happy to have Paul home where he will continue to make progress with physical therapy and speech therapy.
Paul is very humbled and grateful for all the love, support and generosity you have given to him since his Stroke. He loves you all very much and is happy to be home where he will continue his road to recovery.
Please continue to keep Paul in your thoughts and prayers and feel free to reach out to him either through text message or facetime message. Paul has a long road in front of him but he is more determined and motivated now that he is HOME."

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!

Dunkin Donuts Player Of The Week
Five Guys Player Of The Week
DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER OF THE WEEK 2-20-21
This week's Dunkin Donuts co-winner goes to Rich Pelletier of Shockwave. In a standout all-around performance, Rich had a statement game, factoring in on all four goals scored in the third period by his team, leading his team back from a two goal deficit and scoring 2-goals in twenty seconds (one short-handed, the other on a power play). Welcome back to the offense Rich, you have been missed.
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 2-20-21
This week's Five Guys winnergoes to Dand Broderick of Shockwave. The Old Man still has it, playing lots of minutes, controlling the defensive zone and quarterbacking his team's defense with a key third period assist in a third period 4-goal comeback that seperated his team in the standings from the team chasing them for that final playoff spot.
DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER OF THE WEEK 2-13-21
This week's Dunkin Donuts co-winner goes to Pic of Jake-O-Lanterns. Pic's efforts early in his game left no doubt of the outcome. His 1-goal and 1-assist in the first five minutes led the offense, and his other assist late in the game capped off a standout effort. Pic has been giving it all the last three weeks trying to set up the Former Great One for that historic career goal; instead he decided to focus on his own stats for one game.
