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 New Year brings a league wide scoring challenge and here's how the challenge/contest works;
During the Spring Season only.., your New Years Resolution (and challenge) is to beat your previous Winter Season points total and for the goalies they must beat their previous season GAA.
Players must play a minimum of 6-games in the previous winter season to qualify
Must beat your previous points total by "1-point"
Goalies must be "under" their previous GAA total
Ties do not qualify - you must beat the previous winter season
All players that beat their previous season total will qualify to be entered into random drawing for a $75 Gift Card for Amazon
New for 2019: Thank you to John Kelleher; CEO of Vulcan Industries as this year he has sweetened the pot by adding a FREE Vulcan Stick to the prize package.
The random drawing will take place between the first 2-games of the semi-finals playoff game of the Spring Season on Saturday, April 20.
New league policy for team's playing short-handed
Effective immediately, if any team only has 1 substitute player on their bench, that team will be given a player so that there are at least two substitutes on that team's bench. The substitute player will be chosen at the discretion of the league Director. Any objections by the team captain or players will be overruled.
As a reminder to all players, if you know you are going to miss your game, please inform your captain and the Director so that contingency plans can be made when there are multiple players missing.
If additional players are to be added to a team's playing roster so that a team has sufficient players available on their bench, this will be at the discretion of the Director.

Pink Stick Bag Challenger
The 14th challenger for the seasonal pink stick bag challenge is Mauro Colucciello. You can follow Mauro's progress weekly by going to the Pink Stick Bag Challenge web page for the latest write-up.
Mauro will be trying to save the good family Colucciello name after his brother John failed miserably attempting to score 6 goals during the previous season to beat this challenge. Mauro has been tasked with attempting to score the same 6 goals this season.
Fail, and Mauro will join the growing "Failed Club Brotherhood" and like many before him will have to carry the pink stick bag for the Spring 2019 (if not longer), have to wear visibly showing an item of pink, receive a "failed" patch for his shirt and will now be mandatory to wear the new pink shirt during all team warm ups.

DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER OF THE WEEK 2-9-19
This week's Dunkin Donuts winner goes to John Mastrocolaof Coach's Corner. For the past couple of weeks, the hecklers in the Stadler & Waldorf sideline luxury box have been relentlessly tormenting John with taunts of "are you going to do something out there or just take up space?" Motivated by this, John answered his critics in a big way, scoring 2-goals in the third period and bringing his team back from a two goal deficit. In his last two games, John has scored 3-goals to silence his critics!
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 2-9-19
This week's Five Guys winnergoes to Umberto Biancardiof Gang Green. After missing the majority of last season with a lower body injury and a few games early this season, Papa found himself in the right place at the right time during his game to score the game winning goal and first goal of the season late in the third period and complete his team's comeback from an early first period two goal deficit. For Papa all those nights and hours spent rehabbing in the gym on the stationary bike finally paid off!
DUNKIN DONUT PLAYER OF THE WEEK 2-2-19
This week's Dunkin Donuts winner goes to Jim Barber of Black Hole. As one of the top captain's in the over 30 league history Jim also does his talking on the floor. Jim had his best game so far this season leading his team to a 6 to 1 victory over mixed nuts. Jim had two goals and three assists. The highlight of the game was a great pass from Ike sending Jim alone on a breakaway going five hole. Many people are asking is Jim's success his black Vulcan stick or is it him.
FIVE GUYS PLAYER OF THE WEEK 2-2-19
This week's Five Guys winner goes to Dan Hill of Mixed Nuts. Dan is new to the over 30 league playing only his second game drafted as a forward but, playing defense. His team was short handed playing with seven people. Dan logged major minutes blocking shots and helping his team stay in the game. Dan helped keep his team in the game but, they ran out of gas in third period.
