2022-23 End of Season Address
May 1, 2023

Thank You's

Thanks to everyone for another great season - we had 31 teams this season and actually managed a full, uninterrupted, season for the first time since 2018-19! 

Another thank you to Rob and Eric, our icemaking team for their thankless work.

Finally, thanks to our longtime sponsor, McNally Construction, for their continued support.

Notable Accomplishments

It's been a while since we've done this but we've had some notable league milestones and accomplishments this year

  • Congrats to the McMaster Women's team for their 11 game winning streak which ties them for 2nd of all time.
  • Congrats to Mike Eddy for taking top spot in the lifetime winning percentage with a current record of 75.86%
  • Congrats to Pete Kastrau for being the first player to reach the 300 Wins and 3000 Points milestone. In honour of this, all players will be required to rock sweet moustaches in the upcoming sesaon.

Team Hot Shots

So, this years triumphant return of the Team Hot Shots competition took the literal interpretation instead, as it occurred during the two hottest days of the season (29 degrees!). As a result, only half the teams were able to participate. So take these results with a grain of salt but your Team Hot Shots winners are:

  • A Flight: Blonski - 43pts - 1st Overall
  • B Flight: Academy Girls - 39pts - 2nd Overall
  • C Flight: Sarvari - 26pts - 8th Overall
  • D Flight: Nease - 35pts - 3rd Overall


Finally, congratulations to our champions this season! The games were exciting to watch with our Club Championship game going to an extra end. And thanks to everyone who came out and watched!

You can view all their team pictures on the Past Champions page

Survey and Playoff Finals
April 19, 2023

Firstly, I have put together a short, 2-3 minute anonymous survey that I would appreciate all players complete.

Survey Link:

Your responses will help guide the league and make sure I don't get too avant garde with future plans!

Secondly, we're down to the FINAL WEEK of the Open League with Semi-Finals tonight, and Finals tomorrow! I encourage everyone to come down, grab a drink, and watch all the Champions be crowned on Thursday, April 20th before we all work on our tans during the off-season. 

Prizes will be handed out after the games, so if you have won a series this year, finished top 3 in the regular season, or make the finals, you MUST have at least one team member come and collect it (No rules against keeping all the money to yourself if you're the only team member to show up). Prizes not collected will be graciously donated to next year's prize pool (this is not a joke).

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

April 13th Hot Shots Cancelled
April 13, 2023

Due to the very hot weather, we need to cancel the Hot Shots competition tonight. Unfortunately the cooling system in the rink isn't able to keep up and we risk seriously damaging the ice.

There won't be an opportunity to make up the Hot Shots during regular league play, although feel free to bring your team out to any available ice and give it a go anyway!
