We have sequestered (7) judges to the Over-30 Conclave to cast their vote for the VISA Gift Card - Over-30 League - Goal of the Year Award.
These judges will all cast secret ballots. When the results are final and the Goal of the Year is chosen a plume of white smoke from Hockeytown’s chimney will signify a decision has been made and an award ceremony will follow.
The top (6) standout and most memorable goals (in no particular order) have been compiled for their voting expertise.
