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.

New League Shirt Policy
Attention all players
Effective immediately going forward, there is a new Over-30 league shirt policy in effect. Players will not be allowed to cut the team shirts once they are handed out. Especially to the sleeves and removing the stripes. There is the expectation in the Over-30 league that you "respect" the shirts that are handed out to start each year.
As some of you know this year, the league changed shirt suppliers after dealing with the same shirt supplier for many years (who subsequently went out of business). The shirts did not fulfill the expectations as in previous years. Consequently, the league is currently diligently working on resolving this issue for next year and having a new shirt supplier in place over the next couple of months. A similar style and fabric material that you wore last year is the focus of the league. In addition, we will be exploring a 3/4 length sleeve option going forward.
The player everyone can thank for this new rule being implemented is Sergio Costa. We don't know if this is a Portuguese fashion statement; we do know that we expect all the Over-30 players to wear a team hockey shirt, not a cut-off gym sweatshirt. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you exhibit A below, and the Serg look.
PS, Sergio is not alone here in choosing the wrong shirt fashion statement; there are other players just as guilty. The league will not call them out but you will all notice who they are.
On the left you have your classic veteran player respecting the Over-30 league shirt. In the middle you have the younger Over-30 player wearing the gym cut-off thug look!

This week’s Dunkin Donut winner goes to Matty Iannelloof Maybe One. In any big game it usually is your elite players who somehow will manage to step up and lead the way. Such was the case with Matty who made his impact felt in a must win game that determined the final playoff team, as he scored the game’s first 2-goals early and late in the second period of a scoreless game, while setting up the game’s third goal on the power play. It wasn’t just the scoring that stood out for Matty, it was his leadership behind the play doing all the subtle little things that made the difference that made this a unanimous choice.
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 12-9-17
This week’s Five Guys awardwinner goes to John Mastrocolaof Maybe One. When his team needed guys to step up, John answered the call by scoring a big insurance power play goal early in the third period that essentially sealed the win as well as assisting on three goals, including the game’s first two goals. All game long John had his running legs going that had a big impact on pressuring the other team’s defense with a solid fore checking game. John picked the right game to have his best game of the season.
DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER OF THE WEEK 12-2-17
This week’s Dunkin Donut winnergoes to Ray Nickersonof Maybe One. In a must win game, Ray set up the key second goal for his team early in the second period, then scored an insurance goal in the third period to give his team some breathing room. The win moved Maybe One into a tie for the final playoff spot with a winner take all showdown game taking place next week. Unconfirmed reports had Ray complaining to the referees/timer of not getting credit for any phantom assists on his team’s other three goals.
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 12-2-17
This week’s Five Guys awardwinner goes to Tony Mastrocolaof Maybe One. After following the yellow brick road to the Land of Oz, consulting with the Wizard and his Board of Directors (the Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and Toto) it has been determined that Tony deserved this award. Tony had his running legs going all game long as he hustled his way in setting up two of his team’s first three goals in helping them build a commanding lead in a must win game. After his game, even Glinda, the good witch of the North, and the wicked witch of the West nodded their approval of the "Munchkin" winning this award.
DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER OF THE WEEK 11-25-17
This week’s Dunkin Donut winnergoes to Walter Maslakof Trojan Horse. Walter has been on a role offensively lately as he scored 2-goals in his game and fourth in his last three games. In addition, Walter continues to jump start his team by scoring his team’s first goal in the first period in five of their ten games played this season. Walter’s goals moved him into fourth place overall in the leading scorers race and second overall with goals scored this season with nine.
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 11-25-17
This week’sFive Guys awardwinner goes to Nazof Blues Brothers. After missing the first half of the season due to an upper body injury, Naz has settled in on defense for his team. The self-declared “shutdown defenseman” of the Over-30 league made a heads up play to set up his team’s first goal late in the first period and played shutdown defense thereafter in helping them win their game. For one game, Naz was able to put aside all those Over-30 hats he wears and be recognized as a top defenseman while on the rink.
