Week 15 MVPs


Christian Parker (Hawks) - This week's MVP Christian "New Guy" Parker was a scoring machine. He netted 2 of the Hawks 3 goals helping us to a win. Keep them coming Christian. Great game!


Scott Turner (Canucks) - Turner's first goal in a while from the goal line helped the Canucks in a very close loss. If only he didn't take the puck off his own teammate later in the game.


Trevor Kwolek (Oilers) – Highlight reel saves were made by the Oilers goalie that stunned those in attendance. Trevor is looking to make 2017 the year of the (Oilers) goalie.


Jessica Miotto (Canadiens) - Since joining our team a bit later in the season, Jessica has been a strong force not letting a single goal past her on D against the Oilers. She can always be counted on to back up her team and her tenacity and smooth moves were recognized on the ice this week by her teammates!


Rob Peto (Sabres) - Rob stood on his head for us this week. Keeping the game much closer than the score shows. Way to go Rob.


Diana Hastings (Flames). What a little absence from the game of hockey does for this star of the week. Missing the past 4 games, Diana played a Whirling Dervish of skating and tenacious fore-checking. Playing Centre and just coming up short on getting a goal at this new position. Has she found her new calling??


Colette Gerryts (Penguins) – Colette personifies exactly what it means to be a team. She stepped up and played forward for the first time in her life to help the team out in a pinch. She not only embraced the challenge (despite her apprehension), she excelled at it too! The puck was like a magnet to her stick, keeping her in the heart of the play and giving her several chances at a goal. You rock girl!


Emily Fieguth (Wings) - Emily asked for some advice on how to play forward and this past week, to help her learning along, she played centre for the first time in ages. Following some vague instruction and adding her own unique spice to the position, Emily managed to create opportunities not only for herself but for each member on her line. With more than ten shots on net for the game, Emily did a great job on the offensive and defensive side of the puck this last week. Nice work Emily!


Bekki Matte (Rangers) – Bekki finally got the monkey off her back and scored a huge goal for the Rangers this week. She also had many more scoring chances. Great game Bekki.


Adam Selvig (Flyers) - The first Flyers MVP of 2017 goes to Adam Selvig. With new skates, new gloves and a new position at center Adam was a force all game. Showing great hustle, he had several scoring chances including 2 breakaways. Did those new skates come with wings Adam?


Nick Vocal (Bruins) - Nick had a break out game delivering his best performance of the season! He had hustle all game long. Forecheck back-check pay cheque! He went 200 feet split the D and sniped the biscuit.


Mary Armstrong (Leafs) - Mary was on fire this week! Her excellent play gave her many scoring chances, and drew many cheers from the Leaf’s bench. Her hard work paid off, earning her the cup and this week's team MVP. Congratulations, Mary!

Meet our GHL Refs - Ref #2

Welcome to the second installment of 'Meet Our GHL Refs'.

To be a good GHL referee, many times you have to analyze what is before your eyes and make a single call. These calls are not just reserved for the arena....In fact, one of our GHL refs once won the Showcase Showdown on the Price is Right many years ago when he made a fantastic bid.

Click below to see the answers to the interview that we had with this referee.


Ref Number 2's Interview

It is with great sadness, that we inform you of the passing of Chester Murawski. He passed away last night (December 16, 2016) with family by his side.

The GHL first met Chester in 2009 when he covered one of our events for SNAPd St. Catharines. He immediately became our #1 fan and soon brought grandson Nolan into the league.  Two years later, his son, Dan decided to put the skates on and Chester watched proudly as his son and grandson played the best sport in the world, side by side. Chester never missed covering a GHL event and would often remind us to put the event into SNAP and make sure we request him as our photographer. He was a kind and generous man who will be missed by his GHL family.
