2018 Playoffs Set to Begin
With the end of the regular season the playoffs are set to begin after March break. The full first round schedule is now posted on the website.
Good news, all teams make the playoffs (unless you are team 9)!
For those who are new or who have a bad memory, the playoffs take on a different format with each game being played for a maximum of 5 points. Each period is worth 1 point and the final game result is worth 2. As an example If Team A is up 2-1 after the first they receive 1 point for winning the first period. In the second period if Team B scores two and goes up 3-2, they get a point for that period. In the third period if no team scores then each team would get a half point. The final point total would be Team A - 1.5 points, Team B 3.5 points (2 additional points for the win).

The ORMHL Finds a New Home!!
With the closure of the Twisted Oak we needed to find a new place for the guys to go after the game. We have struck a deal with the Oak Ridges Wild Wing (Beer Store Parking lot).
Below are the details of the League's Partnership. Please make sure you support the bar as the more support we give the better the deal we can get next season.
We are having our 4th annual 3 on 3 Xmas Tournament scheduled for Dec 28th 8pm start. See details below.
Space is limited to 9 skaters per team – 45 players. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. Please visit the scorekeeper booth to put your name on the sign-up sheet. We will keep a wait list once we are full. Teams will be announced night of at the rink. You can also sign-up using the Poll on the right side of the main page of this website. Make sure you use your actual name in your user name so we know who you are.

· OUT OF PLAY – When the puck goes out of play, the team not responsible for the stoppage in play will be awarded the puck. A minimum of ten feet of clearance shall be given to resume play. No face-off will occur. If the puck goes out of
play but is returned without player interference the puck is still live and play should continue as normal. (i.e. off the white plastic or netting at the end of the rink)
