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 10 MVPs



James Casselman (Rangers) - Teammates say that James was a monster on the ice this week! Scoring 2 goals that night to keep us in the game ending in a 4-4 score! Way to go James!



Craig Stanton (Wings) - Email sent to coach late Saturday afternoon - "Never mind Allan, change of plans - I will be there tonight. " How it should have read - "Never mind Allan, change of plans - I plan on showing up to have an MVP performance and have one of my best games of the season. I plan on getting a few points tonight.




Dan “fireball” Murawski (Leafs) - A stalwart on the blue line all game long.  Smart heads up hockey, great positional play and created a number of chances that resulted in team goals!



Marlene Hodgins (Oilers) - This star winger played the game of her season. Marlene was a force up and down the wing while feeding James a perfect pass for a highlight goal! What a game Marlene!



Killer game by all the Sharks this week!



Whole team! Even though GM Tyler Lowther won a personal victory by scoring two goals against his arch-nemeses Anthony (especially) and Julia, the MVP for this week goes to all the Flyers for their hard work and hustle this week in a well-played game. Great work Flyers!



Benny (Ducks) – This girl is all spirit, smiles and energy both on and off the ice. Benny gives it her all every shift and is such a motivation for the team, totally embracing the Ducks and the team atmosphere. We love you Benny!  



Robyne White (Bruins) - Robyne had a great come back to the Bruins after 2 weeks off. She played a great game creating multiple opportunities for the team! Awesome job Robyne!!




Stephanie Thorne (Canucks) - The Canucks have had a tough year, but this week the scoreboard was FINALLY on our side! However, the big win was overshadowed by something a little more important—GHL spirit. Our MVP of the week, Stephanie Thorne, demonstrated first-hand that helping others—even when they are on the opposing team—is sometimes more important than anything else. Congrats, Steph...you and the rest of the Canucks have made us proud!



Killer game by all the Canadiens this week!




Mark Grecco (Sabres) – Mark had a solid game. Good defensive play plus was passing the puck to his line mates pretty much all night in a tough loss to the Pens.



Killer game by all the Penguins this week!
