Findlay Men's Hockey League
League Information

Mission

The goal of the Findlay Men's Hockey League is to provide an organized, fun, and competitive recreational hockey experience for men and women of all age and skill levels.

Seasons

We typically host three seasons throughout the year: Fall, Winter, and Spring. The fall and winter seasons usually consist of 11 to 13 games while the spring season consists of 6 to 8 games.

Divisions

During the fall and winter seasons, we offer three divisions of play: A, B, C, and 45+. The A division is for higher skilled players while the C division is for beginners. During the spring season, we offer two divisions of play: Upper and Lower. The Upper division consists of A and high-level B players while the Lower consists of low-level B players and C players. Click the button below for more details about each division.

Teams

Teams typically consist of 13 skaters and a goalie. However, teams may opt to carry 10 skaters and a goalie for an additional cost. Many teams purchase their own jerseys, but the league can provide team uniforms if needed which are to be returned at the end of the season. Team captains may submit proposed rosters, but the league makes the final decision on all rosters. Teams must remain compliant with the Team Rating Cap (see Rating System section below) throughout the season.

Games

All of our games are held at the Cube in Findlay, Ohio, consist of three 17-minute stop-time periods, and are officiated by two referees and one scorekeeper. In the event of a tie, the game will go into a shootout. Each team will get three chances to score. If the score is tied after the first three shooters, it will be sudden death for up to two more shooters for each team. If the score is still tied, the game will end in a tie. Each player only gets one chance to shoot in each shootout.

Registration

Players register individually rather than as a team. The registration form will provide a place for you to specify which other players or team you would like to skate with and although we try to honor these requests, we cannot guarantee your preferences will be met. In the event more players register than we have available roster spots, the first players to register and pay will get the spots.

End of Season Tournament

In an effort to provide some fun competition, we have created an end-of-season tournament using the Buffalo Point System. Additional details can be found by clicking the link below.

Player and Team Ratings

To help meet our goal of providing an organized, fun, and competitive hockey experience, we use a rating system to place players in the appropriate division of play. Ratings are determined by the Rating Team with input from Team Captains. Use the link below for more details about the rating system. Individual player ratings can be found using the Player Ratings link below or on our Player Profile page. Team Ratings can be calculated using the Team Rating Table link below.
