Congrats to the winners of the awards of S22 of the Hockey zones.


If you aren't that hip and haven't heard yet, thats okay. But Season 23 of RSHL is just around the corner and rosters for preseason are up on the website. Still waiting for a few teams to respond to add another team or 2, but if you are interested in making your own team or if you a tirribie tiperr cipiitin and forgot to tell me your team is returning, feel free to PM me on forums to throw you up there.

There is no exact date as of this second but hopefully as the rosters fill up a little bit after we add another team or what not, we will be rolling soon. With no offseason event this time around, I believe the plan will be a slight extended preseason to try out any setting changes or plans.

So if youre looking to start/return a team, now is the time to let me know. If you're just a jabroni player, now is the time to join a team for the new season. Any other questions feel free to ask me or Goldeye as well.

Hockey Zone keeping it straight HZ since 1845.

The Future of Hockey Zone, part 2

Hello, Hockey Zone. Sorry for no news for a bit there. About a year back I posted about the Future of Hockey Zone and how I considered it bright. I still absolutely think so, but what I have found is that no amount of optimism can replace getting things done. I have built my reputation on doing anything and everything; the things people would not do; the things that had to be done. I have always felt strongly about taking the game that I started with 12 years ago (and took over 6 years ago) and carrying it forward. Unfortunately compared to those times, my time has been taxed to its limit and it's obvious I no longer have the time or energy to continue in the role of The Boss--doing things my way means I have to lead by example, but this season more than any other I played mostly a support role.

Many thanks to all of the players, refs, and captains, and especially fur of fur, Steve Cheese, and Arcadian, for working with me and together to put on another successful season. I hereby dissolve the Committee of One, and step back from my position as Director of HZ, and instate Goldeye to carry out the next steps to move things forward--we have a plan in motion and he will follow up shortly. I will still be around behind the scenes, and in game, and ASHL is still in development. See you around.

Baby Seal Killers take Game 5 and the Championship!

1st 2nd 3rd Final
Baby Seal Killers 1 2 2 5
Vegan Police 1 1 0 2
Total game time: 36:00

The final game of the RSHL Championship Finals Series was as close as the first four, with very even play from both sides. The first period saw team captains Zeppelin- and Thrill exchange a goal each. Neither side was quite comfortable until after the first intermission, with each team only taking 5 shots each before then.

J-Walking snuck one by BSK goaltender Cereal n' Milk to give Vegan Police their only lead of the game. They were unable to use this momentum and this was the final VP goal of the game. Luis Mendoza caught Steve Cheese to tie up the game. Not long after, mel. sent Vegan Police reeling with a cross-crease snipe. CMDROS took a Blatant Defensive Crease penalty shortly after that left VP without many options. The Baby Seal Killer defense stood strong in the power play situation and Zeppelin- converted one goal.

Vegan Police did not lay down or give up, and they continued their assault for the rest of the game but several opportunities ended up falling through due to wide shots or missed timings. In the final minute, Zeppelin- all but mathematically eliminated the comeback potential by completing the hat-trick and extending BSK's lead to 3.

Congratulations to Baby Seal Killers on their first RSHL Championship!

1st star: mel. (1g, 2a, 29st, 31to, VNS, GWG)
2nd star: Cereal n' Milk (11sv, 2ga)
3rd star: Zeppelin- (3g, 1a, the daggers)
Playoff MVP: Zeppelin- (18g, 5a, main BSK goal scorer by far)

Zeppelin- leads Baby Seal Killers to Game 5

1st 2nd 3rd 1st OT Final
Vegan Police 0 3 0 0 3
Baby Seal Killers 1 2 0 1 4
Total game time: 39:34

Vegan Police went into Game 4 with a chance to end the series and hoist the Blackie Cup for the first time. Baby Seal Killers looked to force a decisive Game 5 and rebound from two two-goal defeats in a row, in which they were outscored 9-5.

The first period, however, would be defined by defense. Vegan Police amassed a total of two shots on goal while Baby Seal Killers, despite taking ten shots against VP goalie Steve Cheese, only managed to score one goal by mel.. The BSK defense and midfield performed so well that they had almost a one minute advantage in puck time and only two of their players, one of which was their goalie, managed to get a rating above 10. And yet, Baby Seal Killers only had a 1-0 lead.

The second period saw the Vegan Police offense become the model of efficiency. kai- and fur of fur would score three goals between them on a grand total of four shots to briefly take the lead. Unfortunately for them, at the same time Zeppelin- put his team on his back and scored two goals on six shots to tie the game 3-3 going into the third period.

The third and final period proved to be much like how the first period was for Vegan Police, but for both squads. Both teams combined for a mere seven shots on goal and both goalies were up to the task to force the first overtime period of the finals. In just over three-and-a-half minutes only two players managed to register a single shot on goal for both teams, but Zeppelin-'s shot would find the back of the net, giving him a hat trick and his team the victory to force a winner-take-all Game 5 as the referee frequency yelled at the spectators to "Stop throwing hats on the ice" and "There aren't hats in this game. How are you even doing that?"

Vegan Police takes the Series Lead 2-1

Baby Seal Killers take Game 1 of Blackie Cup Finals

1st 2nd 3rd Final
Baby Seal Killers 2 1 2 5
Vegan Police 1 0 1 2
Total game time: 36:00

Monday, 31 August 2015 the waning moon's phase was 92.05% full and a perfect evening to start the Blackie Cup Finals. The culmination of an arduous Season 22 was to begin with the first game of the Blackie Cup Finals with the top 2 teams from the regular season facing off. Baby Seal Killers has been marching through season after season with playoff runs that have never made it to this juncture. The Vegan Police, a team formed after the season started, proved they have the chemistry to make things happen. Both teams have many players that are eager to earn their first Blackie Cup victory.

The first 3 minutes of the first period were controlled by Vegan Police and the referee RKDN+ commented on the goal judge frequency that VP was really applying excellent pressure with a few quality attempts. Zeppelin- and company allowed me to look foolish scoring the first goal of the finals where mel. received a pass from Zeppelin- and easily put it away into the net. Vegan Police would not relent in the high pressure in the midfield and less than thirty seconds after the goal by Baby Seal Killers, Vegan Police responded with a goal of their own by an excellent shot by J-Waking assisted by Thrill and kai-. Ping pong action of back and forth hockey would occur with excellent midfield, goaltending and defense up until 4:33 seconds left in the first when Luis Mendoza slap shot a goal above the goaltender courtesy of a pass by mel. also assisted by d money. The first period ended with Baby Seal Killers leading Vegan Police 2 to 1.

The second period was filled with very balanced action on both ends of the ice with very few scoring opportunities for either team until in the last minute of the period Zeppelin- put a goal away assisted by his life partner d money. Period 2 ends with BSK up 3-1.

The final period of the game was all Baby Seal Killers with Zeppelin- completing a hat trick, mel. getting another goal and d money racking up 2 more assists. Cereal n' Milk played a solid game in goaltender only allowing 1 goal on 17 shots but had packetloss issues and self proclaimed legendary goalie Zeppelin- jumped into net to close out the game only to give up a goal to kozzy.

Good game to both teams and the best of luck in game 2 of the Blackie Cup Finals. Baby Seal Killers wins game 1 with a final score of 5 to 2.

First Star: Cereal n' Milk (17 saves, 1 goal against)
Second Star: mel. (2g,1a)
Third Star: d money (4a)

Wooden Spoon: yoinkie (9 saves, 5 goals against)

1st 2nd 3rd Final
Empire 2 1 3 6
Short-Handed 2 1 1 4
Total game time: 36:00

After rescuing his team from a 0-2 series defecit, the savior of SH, Kor, started the game off well for SH. This of course was done with the assistance of BananaSquadron. Kor captured the ball of the wall south of the net and drove upward toward BS who attempted a check while facing the net, and, unfortunately for him, ended up with the ball causing his check to shoot the ball into his own goal. Things were looking good for SH who after winning the last two games and getting the first goal in game 5 seemed to have all the momentum. However, Banana made up for his earlier blunder by completing a fake hat trick with the next two goals going into the correct net. The period would close with a tie (barely) as Cookingwolf put in a goal for SH with only 2 seconds left.

In the 2nd, Banana completed the real hat trick to put Empire up again, but once again, the period would end in a tie. After 168 minutes of realistic spaceship hockey, this series would come down to the last 12 as both teams entered the 3rd period with a clean slate and a chance to win with just one more goal.

The 3rd period scoring was opened up by ... surprise, surprise, BananaSquadron, for his 4th goal of the game. The next goal gave Empire their biggest lead of the game, putting them up by two. Antsy score one toward the bottom post which look like a definite lag play to the ref (so did McVinyl's 2nd period goal though where you can even see the goalie spiking twice in the replay). Luckily we had plenty of goal judges this game to call this clean. It would end up being the game winning goal. SH did pull back within 1 when Kor caught the ball rigth on the crease surrounded by enemy cr sitters. He angled upward and shot a steep angled shot which bounced off the post and in.

Toward the end of the game, SH either had a goalie lagout or pulled their goalie (I've never seen this strategy pay off in spaceship hockey). Either way, a very well placed outlet pass off the top wall by DW0 found a cherry picking Antsy wide open with no one between him and the goal. He said sorry, but obviously had it typed out before shooting the goal, so you can all vs him later for it. Empire wins this game 6-4 and the series 3-2. They will move on to play for the Livewire Cup (or Alastria, not sure) against ITF who has yet to lose a game this playoff season.

1st star: BananaSquadron69 (4 goals, 1 assist, 1 own goal)
2nd star: Apple chops (2 goalie assists, 20 saves, 4 goals against)
3rd star: Antsy (1 good goal, 1 lame goal, 2 assists)
Rusty Spork: BananaSquadron69 (trying to score a goal with 10 seconds left and a 2 goal lead)

VP moves to the finals

1st 2nd 3rd Final
=) 0 1 2 3
Vegan Police 1 1 3 5
Total game time: 36:00

After their game 1 loss, Vegan Police has now won three straight games to move on to the blackie cup finals. Once again, it was j-walking who made sure his team would not lose. As in the previous game he had a point and active part in each of his team's goals. He dominated this series and game, and is one of the main reasons his team is in the finals. J-W is in great position to be playoff MVP.

After falling into a 2 goal deficit, Smile actually surprised some people by socring a goal near the end of the 2nd period and evem tying the game in the 3rd. Unfortunately for their season VP scored only 8 seconds later to regain the lead. Another J-walking goal would be the game winner, but at the time put VP up by 2 late in the game. Steve cheese made the game interesting again by trying to slap shot the ball down ice from right in front of his crease. It was immediately intercepted and shot for a quick goal to bring Smile within 1 again. Perhaps the cruel twitch comments about his username got to him. VP was able to survive the blunder in the end to win the series in 4 games. Congrats to them and congrats to Smile on a good season.

1st star: J-Walking (4 goals, 1 assist)
2nd star: Thrill (1 goal, 2 assists, shut down Smile throughout the mid)
3rd star: Sex (no one stood out, so i went by rating)
Rusty Spork: Steve Cheese (most trolled by twitch viewers)

SH stays alive

1st 2nd 3rd Final
Empire 0 1 3 4
Short-Handed 3 1 1 5
Total game time: 36:00

It looks like SH wants to win this series! At the start of the game, SH had players showing in the double digits while Empire only had 5. Empire did end up showing a 6th for even strength play about 1.5 minutes into the game. SH captain, Kor, made an appearance after missing the first two games of the series. It was an important factor SH as he opened the scoring shortly after apple chips showed to make the game even strength. Later in the period big eater mysteriously proxed a ball that should have been tiles away from him while swooping downward through the crease. After a little debate over whether a bdc should be called, big eater was assessed only a two minute minor which SH was able to kill off. Another DC was called this period as well, this one going against Empire's Pity. who played hot potato with the offense while backing into the crease. Empire, however, was not able to kill their penalty off. Kor tallied his second goal of the game immediately after the ensuing faceoff. SH ended the period with a 3-0 advantage. Almalexia had the other SH goal after being added part way into the period, and promptly disappeared from the arena going out on a high note a la George Constanza.

Alma would return though. At the beginning of the 2nd period, she assisted Kor for his hattrick goal that put SH up 4-0! Empire was on their heels, and was clearly not going to compete in this game. It should also be noted that Empire, after going down 0-3 in the 1st, switched their goalie and defender (dw0 and apple chips) to hopefully stop the bleeding. It turns out that Empire didn't get the memo that the game was over. J.jagr and DOATIEBSGIJRDOWMOI (Antsy here after) went on a tandem rampage after the midway point in the game. J.jagr netted his first goal with Antsy assist to bring Empire within 3 (4-1) before the 2nd period ended. They would also get the next two goal of the game in the same fashion to put the pressure back on SH. With the game now 4-3, J.jagr and Lawn Dwarf declared that we could have a game now. Empire was close, but the time was waning. With under two minutes left, Empire still hadn't found that crucial 4th goal. That was until Pity. accepted a pass from Antsy and got the ball past m1ch to tie the game with only 1 minute and 14 seconds left in the game! SH did not want to see this go to overtime. They took a page from their 1st period book, and decided to score off the following faceoff. This time Kor did not score himself, but made a cross defense pass south to Raket who angled a shot top net splitting two defenders and just out of the reach of the goalie to give SH the game winning goal. For the final minute SH played a bit of keepaway to finish the game while the opposing goalie repeatedly called them scumbags for doing so. Keeping the ball away from Jagr and Antsy was the right move though and even with the taunting, they held on for the win.

In multiple games now SH's m1ch has proven to excel at goalie for the first two periods. The third period has so far proven to be dangerous though. This is probably due to a lapses in goalie and SH defense as the game progresses. If they want this series to see a game 5, they'll have to take measures to correct that for the next game.

1st star: Kor (3 goals, 2 assists [a point in every SH goal])
2nd star: J.jagr (3 goals, 1 assist [a point in every EMP goal])
3rd star: Raket (1 goal, not much impact for most of the game, but got the most important goal with a great shot and even better timing)
Rusty Spork: N/A

VP controls the series

1st 2nd 3rd Final
Vegan Police 4 1 2 7
=) 1 1 1 3
Total game time: 36:00

After VP tied up the series in game, they kept that momentum going into game 3. J-Walking continued his dominance by scoring the game's first goal under two minutes into the game. Shortly afterward, chrono evened the score for Smile by speeding past the defense and deke-ing the goalie to land a shot top post. Once again, VP would not let the tie game last for long as kai regained the lead only 30 seconds later. Vegan Police continued to dominate the first period. They continued to force a puck possession game which they executed more effectively than Smile. Their defense was strong, limited Smile's break out plays, and forced them to stumble in their half-ice play execution. The period ended with the shots 11-4 in favor of VP. The period would also end with a 4-1 VP lead on the scoreboard. That 4th goal, netted by J-Walking, would end up being the game winner. Also, the 3rd VP goal came from jugg who was able to hit a puker shot top net past a sleeping Iggy....

Smile came back stronger in the 2nd period where chrono got his second goal. Eventually, J-Walking completed his hattrick to ensure that his team would go into the final period with a comfortable lead. In the 3rd, Smile made a goalie change by switching Sex and Iggy. It seemed like a good decision since Sex (the star of game 1) was unable to move up at all from defense to lend his offense the tank support. However, VP was still able to dominate the period getting two goals from kozzy in a warbird to give VP a 7-2 lead. Smile would eventually get another shot past yoinkie in the final minutes as chrono got his hattrick. The game ended with the shot differential 32-15 in favor of VP. This is something that will likely need to change if Smile hopes to make this a 5 game series. For now, it looks like VP has control of the series and the momentum in their favor.

1st star: J-Walking (3 goals, 4 assists [that's a point for every VP goal])
2nd star: kai- (1 goal, 3 assists [all point in the 1st period where the game was decided])
3rd star: chrono (3 goals) or Thrill (VP's possession dominance was facilitated here [152 puck carries]) you decide
Rusty Spork: Iggy (that goal from jugg...)
