10-15 Hockey Update

Despite the unusually warm weather, we are getting deep into the 2017/18 hockey season for most leagues. A lot going on at both Polar Palace and Crystal Fieldhouse. Here is a quick snapshot of the standings in the leagues with my select editorial comments for those interested.

Eclectic Hockey League

Our fourth week of games, so we faced a previous foe in each conference this week. Bullfrogs 40 edged out Gooners Dogs in a 4-3 Stout Division (40+) game. A couple of new players were added to the Gears Beer team roster and they held their own against undefeated Old Fokkers in a 3-2 loss. Gary Richards of Bullfrogs 40 scored a hat trick Sunday to put him in a tie with Don Lambert of Old Fokkers with 9 points each.

In the Lager Division (25+) Team TLC edged out Hartwig Tree Service in a 4-3 game. The Gutter Guys had a few guys on the bench for a change and out worked a short bench for Bullfrogs 25 in an 8-3 win. Gutter Guy’s goal scorer, Brian Savard is dominating the stats with seven goals and seven assists so far this season. Gutter Guys team manager Trever Funseth is second with five and five.

10-8 Hockey Update

Another week into the hockey season as hundreds of skaters converge at rinks to connect with friends, work off some stress and get exercise. With adult league age ranges from 18 years old well into 60’s, we get to enjoy the best game ever – ice hockey. Within this group of men and women we have individuals from all walks of life. Talent on the ice is what the game is about. Good sportsmanship and respect for your fellow player as we all have lives outside of hockey to go back to. A big thank you to those who play hard each week and exhibit good sportsmanship. Together we can grow this great sport and encourage future generations to follow our traditions.

With that said, here are snapshots of the standings for the leagues at Crystal and Polar taken Monday at around 10 am. They might not all be updated.

First up is my league at Crystal that skates from around 11 am till 3 pm., the Eclectic Hockey League. Two conferences, eight teams. A more complete wrap up will be emailed out to the EHL Updates list you can join at Gears.beer/ehl with the interest form.

Eclectic Hockey League

The Lager Conference is 25+ and the play has been close. Of note is the incredible performances put on by the Gutter Guys. Last week they had a huge win with only six skaters, this week they lost 3-4 with only five skaters. Wow, they are not going to know what to do if they field two lines!

Old Fokkers is the team to beat so far in the Stout conference with an undefeated record. They move the puck really well. Gear Beer got its first win this week, good guys!

Here is a little blast from the past!

Eric had some fun with his new GoPro camera on ice and shared the video with me. I selected a few clips to create a quick video.

Enjoy!
