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."
The Over-30 league has now set up an official league e-mail address and going forward you will be receiving league correspondence from this new e-mail address. Any e-mails sent to the current misterman05@hotmail address will still be received. Please note that the primary form of communication by the Over-30 league will be via e-mail (sorry Ray Nickerson). The new email address will be:
Delay of Game penalty. Will still be called on any player who shoots the ball on his own from his defensive zone into the perimeter netting causing a stoppage in play. However, this will now only be called a delay of game penalty IF the ball is shot ONLY into the defensive zone perimeter netting. If the ball is shot from the defensive zone in to the perimeter netting PAST THE CENTER BLUE LINE anywhere into the offensive zone netting, no penalty will be called. The stoppage in play will result in a defensive zone faceoff (defensive zone faceoff rules will still apply).
Regular Season Overtime. All regular season overtime periods will still be played 4-on-4 with a 5 minute STOP TIME period in effect.
The 2019-20 Over-30 league draft has been completed and is now official. Considerable time was spent on moving players around to play with other players they have never played with or have not played with for some time. All 5 teams have been balanced with players of skill, age, speed, leadership, character. It will be up to the respective team captains and players to find that chemistry amongst themselves for a successful season.
With the confirmation of the league draft being official, the new league shirts have also been created, designed and ordered. Without question, these will be the best ever shirts the Over-30 league have ever provided to the players. These new look shirts have a lighter weight material, a newer more up to date design with new colors being used. The league truly believes that you will like these new shirts.
All team captains will be contacted by the Director in early August to provide a team name so that we can create the league schedule and all the behind the scenes paperwork in preparation of the start of the new season. Thereafter, all team captains will be given information on shirt colors, team rosters and player contact information, along with notification reminders for all their players. All players will be contacted three-two weeks out in advance of the new season's first week's games starting on Saturday, September 7 up at Hockeytown. If any player has not been contacted one week before the new season starts please reach out to me directly.
The new Pink Shirt/Stick Bag Challenger will be officially announced one week before the new season begins. The league looks forward to once again seeing Cooch continue to wear that pink shirt during warm ups while his brother Mauro proudly wears that "passed" patch on his new league shirt.
We expect to have the league website mostly updated ready to go one week before the new season begins. With the new redesign and work put in by the webmaster on the Career Stats and individual player cards (very much appreciated), the league will once again be resuming the practice of recognizing any player(s) who achieve a season milestone.

DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER OF THE WEEK 9-7-19
The first Dunkin Donut award winner for the new season goes to John Carey of Shockwave. After his team fell behind by two goals early in the second period, John stepped up and made plays in leading his team to a comeback win. Late in the second period, John set up a goal, getting his team back into this game. In the third period, John scored 2-goals from the point on perfectly placed shots as part of a four goal offensive outburst.
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 9-7-19
The first Five Guysaward winner for the new season goes to Dan Broderick of Shockwave. After years of acting as a team captain, Dan was given a break by the league office this year and asked to just go out and play for his team. The move paid off immediately as Dan helped bring his team back into their game by erasing a two goal deficit in setting up their first two goals, changing the momentum and completing their comeback win.
