August 25, 2016
BBHLers,
 
First off, thanks for playing this summer.  We hope you had a good time!  If you still have your summer jersey, please return it to your Captain before the end of the month.
 
We have some good news to report - the BBHL winter season will be back and is expected to start games by mid-late October (once construction at the Dome is completed) and Registration will take place by mid-September (dates to be confirmed).  
 
CONGRATS TO THE KINGSMEN who win their second Cup in 2016!!!  Captain Adam McSweeny led his team to victory and wins his record 6th BBHL title in his 11 seasons played of the BBHL's 12 seasons.  Very impressive.  MVP honours go to Evan Morris who was a wall in nets throughout the playoffs.  Not far behind Adam, Evan wins his 5th Cup in his 6 full seasons playing in the BBHL.  Shout out to Mackenzie Bullock who wins his 3rd Cup in *3 years, the only player ever to do that in BBHL history (*Mack did get two cracks at winning in 2016...but hey, who's counting).
 
See website for pic of the Champs! www.leaguelineup.com/thebbhl  
 
Registration date to be confirmed in early september.  Enjoy the rest of the summer.

PLAYER SAFETY - REMINDER:
- A few weeks ago we warned that we would be cracking down on dirty play, play that is "over the line" or that we feel is outside of the spirit of our league. We have asked there referees to call more penalties and we have seen some improvement from both the players and referees.
- However we did have 2 situations yesterday that warranted suspensions.  Therefore we have suspended 2 players for tomorrow's games.  
- On another non-suspension play, another player was clipped in the face with a high stick and went to the hospital for stitches.  
- We feel the high sticks are in part due to the slippery floor and players having a difficult time keeping balance and therefore sticks are rising.  Having said this, we need to keep our sticks down.
 
The point is we all need to be more responsible for our own play. Our Referees will continue to call the right penalties to help keep games under control. This applies to rough or dirty play.  And it applies to high sticks as well.  We will be calling high sticks as tight as ever.  Please support these calls.  It is a safety issue.
 
Thank you for your cooperation.

Draft Results and Week 1

BBHLers,
 
Hope you had a good time at the draft this past Tuesday.  There were exciting picks and trades and now the teams are ready to start the summer season!  You will be contacted by your captain this weekend in preparation for your first game. 
 
The first games are this Tuesday May 17th.  The complete schedule will be posted on our website later today.  For now here is the schedule for week 1.  
 
6:30pm   KINGSMEN PC UNITED
7:30pm   PUNISHERS CHURCHERS
8:30pm   DUCKS BLADES OF STEEL
9:30pm   STEP BROTHERS BLAZERS
 
​Your Captain will give you a jersey on Tuesday.​
 
​​
All games 
​are ​
at Kirkland arena.  We are told we only have access to 2 dressing rooms so we ask that 
​teams
 use the rooms to change, then 
​bring their bag, shoes, clothes, etc... to the bench.  When​ you're finished your game you can go back into the room to shower up and change.  If all teams bring their bags to the bench during their games, we should avoid any issues.
 
​Come to the golf dome bar / terrasse for your post game beer.  Every team has 3 pre-paid pitchers after every game.  For now, only the Captains and Admin have access to order their team pitchers.
 
​Don't forget to follow our Facebook page:  www.facebook.com/BHHLballhockey/likes

The Kingsmen win the 2016 Grinder's Cup!!!

May 8, 2016

The finals. Blood, sweat, tears. Excitement doesn’t even begin to describe last night. Resiliency and determination by the Kingsmen got the better of a very talented Provinces of Canada United. Marc Major won a Grinders’ Cup for the first time in 11 years, and got an ovation – well deserved. Gould’s second goal in an empty net was the nail in the coffin of PCU’s amazing playoff run. Captain Adam “Clutch” McSweeny scored the tying (winning) goal with under a minute left, after Evan Morris had stopped what seemed like 20 shots during the minutes before it.

 

Congratulations to the 2016 Grinder’s Cup Champions – THE KINGSMEN!


Welcome to the Semis!

BBHLers,

CHR - Forward M. Langton (6GP, 8G, 3A, 11PTS)
 
 
Unfortunately this marks the end of the year for the Blazers, Ducks and Punishers.  Congratulations on what was hopefully a fun year despite a tough finish.  If you have not yet returned your jersey, please bring it this week and give it to an admin member.
