LEGENDS HOCKEY INFORMATION 

We like to have 20 skaters in our games, and we do often have openings.

 ďLEGENDSĒ AFTERNOON HOCKEY

THE GAME

LEGENDS Hockey for the 2022-2023 Season is booked.
All games at Ottawa U Rink #2, 2:30pm Monday Wednesday and Friday.
M&W are 1 hour games, Friday is 1.5 hours.
There will be 32-34 games each day, total almost 100 games!

  (Season runs September to April!)  All the games have 20 full-time skaters and 2 goalies, but we often have openings for SPARES.   The games have players in the 55-75 age range, non contact, no slapshots, no refs, different teams balanced and set each week. (Beer at Father & Sons after the game!)

PARKING 

Park in the lot off Mann Ave, then go to the front desk and ask for a yellow pass under Tom Evans. Put it on your dash, itís good for all the games until the end of the year. Donít forget! (If you get a ticket there are ways to fight it, ask).

If you would like to join the full-time roster, we have openings from time to time. Then you will pay a fixed price for the year (about $10 per hour) and be guaranteed a spot. We have a waiting list so email back.  If you know a player who would fit in, and would like to spare, please contact us.

GENERAL

- Game starts after a short warm-up, please be on the ice on time!

- Change with your line, keep the lines together, if your line mates have gone to the bench you should go too.

- Sweaters - please have a white and a black sweater, not other colours, preferably socks as well.

GUIDELINES

SAFETY

- Clean Play - We have no refs, we are self policing. Play by the rules of hockey!  No BodyContact/Slashing/Slashing Stick/Hooking/Holding/Checking.  This includes Ďfunnyí holding/grabbing etc, donít do it. 

- There is to be no pushing/shoving/punching. If you feel another player is cheating (above) tell them verbally only. Any rough behaviour could result in your removal from the league. 

- Protect the Goalies, please don't poke or whack the goalie trying to get the puck. If the goalie more or less has it, just leave it alone.

- NO CUTTING IN FRONT of the goalie/net on offence - a dangerous move to be avoided.

OFFSIDES

Itís the benchís job to call offside, not the players on the ice.  

It should be clearly offside (if itís close remain quiet)
The bench must yell loudly so everyone can hear
Players on ice give the puck away to the defence
Players shouldnít argue except later in the bar

GOALIE PUCK FREEZE

Donít whack at the goalie! Goalie freezes the puck, or puck hits the mesh - puck goes to the defence and offensive team backs up (briefly) to the thin red line at the top of the circles.

ICING

Avoid Collisions! If thereís a race for the puck, whoeverís in front gets possession and a bit of time to turn around, close races go to the defender. Play continues.

GOAL

Offensive team (celebrates and) backs up to centre ice until other team reaches centre ice.- No Slapshots - your stick must be ON the ice through the shooting motion.

- There is compensation for the few guys who deal with the website, make the lines and ensure we have goalies each week, by giving a discount off the fees. If you would like to do this say so.

- The season goes from early September to the end of April, no games when they fall directly on a Statutory Holiday (Labour Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Boxing Day, New Years Day, Family Day, Good Friday). Some other dates are also blocked out.

-As long as there are funds there will be a contribution to a year-end party (around the end of April, all welcome even if you didnít play that game!)

Suggestions ARE Welcome!
