August, 1 2017  -    All applications can be downloaded from our website here:    Over 50 app    -    Over 60 app

Dear Skaters,   

     Congratulations to the Turtles (2017 East Division Champions) and the Copperheads (2017 West Division Champions) for winning their respective divisions in the eighteenth season of the Over 50 Senior Hockey League.  Once again proving that winning the division is not a precursor to reaching the pinnacle of this highly competitive Division.  A third of the league games ended in a tie this year, something the commissioner strives for each season. Congratulations are also in order for both the regular season first place finishers, Riverhawks & Tigers. Although proving that their personal use of mercenaries only leads to disappointment in the end.

     In the East Division the Turtles had a relatively easy time of it in the playoffs as the high scoring line of Brazis & Nazzaro and (the other Powers), coupled with solid defense from the aging Kevin Pierce, crafty Paul Powers and “where do I go, Paul “ Peter O’leary proved too much for their competition.

In the West Division, the Tigers looked like a lock behind Greg Ciulla’s aggressive management style only to lose a 1-0 heart breaker to the always competitive, Flaherty managed Copperheads. A late goal by the tenacious play of Chris Young in the paint gave the Copperheads the only scoring of the night. A solid final game by both teams with timely goaltending and a nail biting ending as the Copperheads defended a late game, six on four push by the tigers for a minute and a half of an all-out barrage by the Tigers top scoring forwards.

     “Change’s, they are a coming.”  The 2017-18 season will be under the tutelage of new commissioner, Paul Powers. I have decided, after eighteen seasons of managing the over 50 league, to hand the reins over to Paul and be available to him in an advisory position. Our hope is that the two seven team divisions will continue, but as usual that will depend on the number and ability of players that sign up for the coming season. Parity will remain the ultimate goal and the commissioner will use all his available tools to accomplish that goal.  All current players who sign up by August 31, 2017 will be guaranteed a position  and new and former players will be added on a first come first serve basis. Opening day will be Tuesday, Sept 12, 2017. For the first time in six seasons there will be a price increase as there are certain unavoidable costs associated with the operation of the facility.

     The over sixty league will be moving from the Sunday afternoon slot to Wednesday nights starting at 7:40pm. The format will depend on enrollment, but with the league moving away from the weekend to a weekday we are optimistic that the league will eventually grow to a six or seven team league. The league will be open to all skaters 60 or over and to players that are 57 or older and have never been classified as an “A” player in the over 50 league.    

Applications for both the over 50 & 60 leagues are available upon request at Hockeytown’s main office. Anyone who knows of an interested skater should call 781-233-3666 or email htusainc@aol.com the rink for an application.

  “ People don’t play sports because it’s fun. Ask any athlete, most of them hate it, but they couldn’t imagine their life with out it. Its part of them, the love/hate relationship. It’s what they live for. They live for the practices, parties, cheers,... 

Larry Abbott,  Former commissioner,    Hockeytown USA
