MNHL News

Monday March 29, 2021 UPDATE

Unfortunately the MLHU has put London back into “Red” meaning no hockey at this time.

Our plan is to wait it out and see how much hockey we can get in when the restrictions lift.

Stay tuned for updates as information is released from the health unit.

PENGUINS TAKE HOME THE MNHL CUP

The Penguins are your 2021 MNHL Champions. In a season riddled with Covid delays and lock downs, the Penguins persevered to become champions.

Penguins finally toss the monkey off their back, which you’d think would be an easy thing to do. 

After a Covid delayed season that felt like 15 years for Captain Collett, the Penguins finally hoisted the Cup. 

Like much of this past season the game was filled with mishaps, starting with the Bruins missing their goalie for the first 20 minutes of the game. Bruins players were struggling to find a willing substitute with Andy Cleland the logical replacement but went with 6 skaters instead. 

The game was off to a slow start with A Cleland not performing to his usual dominating standards.  According to post game reports Adam was practicing his patented toe drag move in the  dress room and dulled a skate blade in the process. 

The Penguins went up early with a few empty net goals, but Bruins kept it close, until the tardy tendy made his way on the ice. 

Leading 4-2 at that point  the Penguins turned up the heat and peppered the ill prep’d goalie pushing the lead to 6-2 before the Bruins could muster a comeback.

Bruised and confused the Cleland Clan could not generate any offense which relied on “The Commish” for most of the offence. 

The Penguins spread out their offence with goals from the 2 Steve’s that found twine behind the Bruins netminder. 

Unfortunately it wasn’t the final the fans came out to see but a Cup win none the less for the Penguins. 

Cup parade set for March 27th, starting at Regent St. then down to Marino’s parking lot.
