Where do you Play?
Carling Arena in London, Ontario.
What nights are games?

When does the season run?
Late September / Early October to end of March.
How much does it cost?
2018-2019 fees were $420.00 per skater / goalies pay half. Returning players often get the opportunity to sign up with an early bird discount.
How are teams formed?
We re-draft teams every year using a balanced draft system trying to mix and balance the teams as much as possible. This allows players to meet new guys each year as players change teams every season.
What is the skill level?
Players skill range from old and good to pretty darn slow.
How competitive is the league?
It’s a social, relaxed league, more organized then pick up but less competitive then the NHL. Players want to win but people don’t usually worry if they lose, as long as there’s beers in the room after.
Who runs the league?
The league is run by a Board of Team Captains that make the decisions as a group with a President, Treasurer and Secretary that handle the administrative duties.

I’m new to the league, what can I expect?
Moderately paced hockey followed by cold beers and the usual dressing room banter to follow. Meet some good guys and get out of the house for a few hours on Mondays.
What equipment is required?
Regular hockey equipment, some sort of face protection (half visor minimum) is recommended. Most players wear shoulder pads, some choose not to.
Any special rules?
No slap shots. No contact. No fighting. Absolutely no punches.
What is the Refund Policy?
No refunds are available once the draft is completed.
Players who suffer season ending injury may be able to obtain a partial refund if a replacement player is found. Transactions of that nature will be handled directly between the injured player and replacement player. The MNHL will not facilitate.
Don’t be an idiot. Remember it’s beer league hockey and the guy you are trying to fight might end up on your team next year. Join is we’re always looking for new players.
