GWLHL - 2017-2018Adult Men's Hockey
All Tied UpDec 8, 2017
It seems as though with the holidays fast approaching many in the GWLHL are getting into the spirit of the season as no fewer than half the games on the slate in weeks 8 and 9 ending up in ties with Rouge and Green both currently sporting impressive(?) two game tying streaks.

Team Rouge 1st Place After Week 6Nov 17, 2017
Who knew that naming their team Rouge instead of Red in honour of Les Canadiens would pay off so handsomely for Rouge co-captain and goalie Gord Dowhan and his merry band of francophone fanatics? Despite losing their first game of the season 3-0 this week against Teal, Rouge stands alone in 1st place in the standings with a record of 4-1-1 and 9 points. Dowhan remains undefeated however as he decided to sit out this week rather than risk tarnishing his stellar 3.25 GAA against Reggie. Shrewd strategy I say as Dowhan attempts to stay in contention for the 2017-2018 GWLHL William M. Jennings Trophy.
Quarter Point of the SeasonNov 10, 2017
With week 5 now in the books we've officially reached the 1/4 point of the regular season so I feel like it's a good time to take stock of where we're at. Week 5 action saw Rouge manage a late comeback to tie Yellow 7-7 to remain the only undefeated team leading the league with a whopping 9 points at 4-0-1 while Black has a less than whopping 0 points and remains the only team still looking for that elusive first win/point at 0-5-0.
Troy Haugen Joins 900 Point Club!Nov 9, 2017
With a 2 goal and 1 assist performance in Team Blue's 10-7 win over Teal last week GWLHL Hall of Famer Troy Haugen became only the 3rd member of the super exclusive 900 Points Club in his 19th season in the league. By doing so he joins Reggie Goodfellow and Larry Davidson in this exclusive group. This is Troy's first year back in the league after a 7 year hiatus or else he would have hit this magical milestone a long time ago (7 years ago is my guess). Troy now sits a mere 327 points behind the inactive Davidson for 2nd place in all time scoring. At his current career points per game pace it would take Troy about 141 more games or 7ish more seasons to catch Larry. I tried calculating how long it would take Troy to catch Reggie for 1st but my calculator exploded. Go get 'em Troy!
A Miracle on Ice!Nov 3, 2017
For the second time in as many weeks Team Green was involved in a crazy game that left many involved just shaking their heads in disbelief. Last week it was 5 short-handed goals in one game and this time it was a comeback of epic proportions. Sources inside the dressing room say Green may have come into the game foolishly overconfident due to the news that White was down their top two defensemen for the game. However, as often happens in the GWLHL the game didn't go quite according to plan...
The Specialist of Special TeamsOct 31, 2017
In a game that shows just how ridiculous and fun (maybe not so much fun for the goalies) the GWLHL can be Green picked up their first win of the season by skating away with an 11-8 win over Teal in week 3. Super snipers Sean Brokop and Reggie Goodfellow put on quite a show going toe to toe and blow for blow in what can only be described as a heavyweight bout with Reggie notching 7 goals, 1 assist and Brokop answering with 5 goals and 1 assist of his own. With those kind of numbers both should be early favorites for the Cy Young award. Sadly both of these single game point totals are more points than I had in my first season in the league but I digress...
Week 1 Match-ups are SetOct 7, 2017
With the 2017-2018 GWLHL draft in the books it's time to take those teams that each captain pairing thinks looks so good on paper and test them to see if that translates to the ice in any way shape or form. Week 1 begins with games on Wednesday October 11th and Thursday October 12th and the match-ups are as follows:
A New Season...New Possibilities...Mostly same old CaptainsSep 28, 2017
The rookie game and draft is right around the corner on Thursday Oct 5th and unbridled optimism is in the air as this year's 16 captains plan their draft strategies to assemble their dream team of GWLHLers to take them to the promised land of a coveted GWLHL Championship...or, failing that, at least draft a fun dressing room of guys to shoot the (expletive deleted) with in the room and Hooters one demoralizing loss after another all season long.
