The tradition continues as once again the CLHL and CLWHL will be heading outdoors for the 16th annual 'Hockey Day in Canada' extravaganza! This year the festivities are scheduled to take place on Saturday January 11th, 2020 at The Norwood Community Center – located at 87 Walmer Street (behind the Santa Lucia on St. Mary’s, just over the Norwood Bridge).

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Norwood+Community+Centre/@49.8794281,-97.1312681,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x52ea76b3afe60999:0xc384d2cca26c9199!8m2!3d49.8794281!4d-97.1290794

The first game is scheduled to begin bright and early at 9:00am. The full CLHL schedule is as follows:

9:00am – Yellow vs. Teal
10:30am – Blue vs. Red
12:00pm – Orange vs. Black
1:30pm – Green vs. Purple
3:00pm – Grey vs. White

Dressing room assignments will be posted on the dressing room doors. As we will only have two dressing rooms for the men’s teams, please vacate the dressing room 15 minutes after your game so that the next teams playing have time to dress.
As usual, the day will include a beer gardens that is scheduled to be open throughout the day. Drink tickets will be $4 each and we will be ordering pizza for both the men's and women's league to enjoy free of charge. The first order of pizza will arrive around 11:20 with 2 additional waves of pizza arriving later in the day at around 1:15 and 2:30.

The current forecast looks blustery, calling for partly cloudy skies with temperatures of around -19C which will feel like -30C with the windchill and possibly a little snow. Keep your eyes on the forecast as I'm sure it'll change being this far out and come prepared for any weather as we never know what mother nature may bring.

Games will be 2 – 20 minutes running time halves, with stop time in the last minute of each half. Teams switch sides after the first half.

Looking forward to a great day with camaraderie shared by all.

Dan Lucovic Joins the 500 Point Club!

Jan 3, 2020
 

There's joining the 500 Point Club and then there's joining the 500 Point Club in style which is what Hall of Famer Dan Lucovic did last night with a 1G 4A performance against a usually very stingy Blue team. With his 5 point performance for the ages Dan became just the 22nd member of the exclusive club in his 20th season and 421st game in the league. Unfortunately for Dan and his Red teammates they came up just short in their comeback bid after falling behind 4-0 in the first period losing 8-6 which included an empty netter with just 4 seconds remaining. Congratulations to Dan on reaching this historic milestone!

Doug Ducharme Plays in 500th Career Game

Dec 5, 2019
 

When he stepped on the ice yesterday for Team White's game against Black Doug Ducharme became just the 14th player in league history to play in his 500th career game. When you consider the fact that well over 700 players have played in the league over the years it makes this accomplishment even more impressive. Over his 23 seasons in the league Doug has amassed 106 goals and 218 assists for 324 points with only 64 penalty minutes. That's an average of less than 1.5 minor penalties per season. League sources also say he's been a member of 3 championship teams over the course of his career. Unfortunately, team sources tell me Doug was held off the score-sheet in his big game and he and his Team White teammates had to settle for a 3-3 tie against Black. Here's hoping for better luck in game #600 Doug!

Craig Robb and Brian Boyd Reach 400 Points!

Dec 2, 2019
 

The last few weeks saw two CLHL veterans pick up their 400th career points. Perennial team captain Craig Robb of Team Orange fame picked up his 400th career point picking up the assist on Alex Palmer's late 3rd period game tying goal against Green on November 13th. Robb reached the impressive milestone in his 14th season in the league and 289th game.

Two weeks later on Nov 28th Brian Boyd of Teal picked up his 400th career point with a goal and an assist in Team Teal's 7-2 loss to Green. Boyd picked up his 400th point feeding prolific assist maker Sean Brokop on his first period goal. Brian reached the milestone in his 18th year in the league and 366th game with his family cheering him on from the sidelines.

Congratulations to Craig and Brian on their accomplishments becoming the 32nd and 33rd players in league history to reach the 400 point mark. Good luck to both of you on your journey to the exclusive 500 point club. Your highly coveted 500 Point Club commemorative pucks are waiting.

Team Green Converts Oldest 3 on 1 in CLHL History

Nov 29, 2019
 

Eyewitnesses looked on with gaping jaws in total disbelief as veteran Team Green trio Glen Garrioch, Randy Takeuchi, and Gerry Boss completed a super slow-motion 3 on 1 tick tack toe passing play that ended with Team Teal jocks littered all over the ice and the puck in the back of their net in Green’s 7-2 win in early game action last night. With the trio’s combined age of 175 and 74 years played in the league, CLHL statisticians responded with a resounding ‘yeah, probably’ when asked to confirm if this is the oldest converted 3 on 1 in league history. Nobody is quite sure how the F a 3 on 1 materialized with the average speed of the players in question being clocked somewhere between ‘glacial’ and ‘tectonic’ but somehow it happened. When questioned by the assembled media after the game on how they could let this happen Team Teal speedsters and leading scorers Sean Brokop and Jeremy Dick declined to comment citing a need to review the play on the game tape, hopefully on a screen that’s not susceptible to burn-in.

With the win Team Green continues its storybook start to the season remaining the league’s only undefeated team through the first 2 months of the season at 5-0-3. The hot start is quite the turn-around for Green Captains Grant and Waldner (along with 2018-19 Team Green holdovers Jajetovic & Grienke) who’s Team Green pathetically lost their final 10 games of the season last year after a promising 8-5 start. When asked to comment on his 4 point (2G 2A) performance last night, an always team first Grant simply replied, “2 points for the win” while Waldner wouldn’t shut up about his 5 point (3G 2A) fluke of a game. With Black’s huge 8-7 come from behind win over Yellow in the late game last night Green remains tied for 2nd overall with Black with both teams now just 1 point behind Yellow. However, Green still has a game in hand on both teams in the battle for the utterly meaningless 1st overall seed.
