HHL Playoffs update......

President's Update - Playoff Edition


Playoff Preview from the Box – Quarter-Finals

A point of order…..I try and see as many games as I can during the season. I spend a lot of the time in the box doing Senior, Midget and Junior games and don’t always get to as many games as I would like….by the way, some of the most interesting discussions of League affairs happen in the penalty box…so…these are my observations. You won’t hear anything negative from me. As President I am unbiased in my opinions.  I have nothing but respect for the players in our league, those that are running and coaching the teams and most importantly those that volunteer for each and every game in our League. Play on…..
