September > March: Saturdays in Virgil (26 Games)

May > August: Fridays in St. Catharines (13 Games)


The GHL has over 250 members and provides a fantastic hockey experience, complete with GMs, captains, coaches, referees, scorekeepers, and one amazing, friendly atmosphere.

Week 15 MVPs



Mike Ferrelli (Sabres) - Playing in his 1st Sabres game, Mike had a great debut and even had some scoring chances. Welcome to the Sabres Mike!



Scott Turner (Penguins) - Scott played a great game this week and made great adjustments to his game in order to help his team earn a well fought tie. Special mention goes to the other Scott who stood tall between the pipes.




Terri VandenDool (Canucks) - Terri played a great offensive game this week in another close match-up. She has noticeably been stepping up her positional hockey and trying to improve her game each week. And although she gets ribbed by the coaching staff from time to time, she's got a great attitude and love for the game. Congrats on earning this week's MVP, Terri!



Marvin Zheng (Canadiens) - Marvin has been getting better every game and did a great job of putting pressure on the defence and causing turnovers in the offensive zone.




Tristan Brown (Leafs) - Our MVP this week goes to our newest member of the Leafs. Tristan was traded to us from the Sabres and he fit into our team like a worn baseball mitt. Tristan not only led the team in points with 2 Goals and an Assist for the night, but he showed amazing patience when moving the puck out of our defensive zone and cleared dangerous pucks into the corners. All around great game Tristan! Welcome to the team.



Jason Aplin and Jesse Roy (Oilers) - These two are a great addition to our team and played a great game on both ends of the rink. Great to have them both on the Oilers.




David Hicks (Wings) – David flopped his way around the net to take home the highly sought-after octopus hat! Making incredible save after incredible save only to let one slip through the 5-hole in the last 30 seconds... butterfly Dave, BUTTERFLY!! :)



Meagan Kupper-Atkinson (Rangers) - Gaining speed every week and a few shots on net make Meagan our MVP of the week! She played both forward and D throughout the game and did a fantastic job no matter where she was on the ice! Great work Meagan! 




Gillian Goodwin (Bruins) – Gill was able to put the second goal on the Bruins score board to tie the game up. Giving the Bruins a much-needed point!


Trevor Kwolek (Ducks) – Trevor is a solid goalie any day of the week. He gives us a chance to win every game. His passion for the game feeds our team to bring our best each game. Trevor made some key saves time and time again on Saturday preserving a much-needed point.



The Schedule (Sharks) – Thanks to a miscommunication in the schedule, we were able to stop the game early after gaining a 1-goal lead.



Rob Peto (Flyers) - In a very close and competitive game, Rob shut the door on the vast majority of the Sharks chances to keep the game tight. His positioning and ability to read the play was exceptional! Great work Peto!
