The Regular Season concluded March 3, 2022 with Team Auto Ranch winning the Season with an outstanding 0.768 winning percentage. In honour of his lifetime dedication in setting up the league in 1991/92, the Regular Season Trophy has been renamed the JIM PEARSON CUP. Many players who played in the league past and present, know Jim. Through good weather and bad weather, Jim was always at the games. Jim started out playing in the league as a goalie and later administered the league. Without Jim, the league would not be in operation today. Congrats to Team Auto Ranch for winning the inaugural season of the Jim Pearson Cup.
The Playoffs started March 4, 2022 and concluded March 26, 2022. After a 7-game round-robin tournament during the month of March, 4 teams advanced to the Finals, held on Thursday, March 31, 2022. A special thanks to Thomas – sponsor of Auto Ranch to supply the special game pucks for the Finals.

“On behalf of the MSHL Administration, we would like to thank-you for a successful 2021/2022 season of the Molson Sportsmen Hockey League.
At the outset of the 2021/22 season, there were many obstacles we had to overcome with COVID-19 vaccination, regional restrictions and Covid-19 shutdowns. Even with the January 2022 Covid-19 shutdown, we persevered and were able to provide all the games planned and paid for. Much of the feedback we have received was positive and expressions of gratitude. In the end, we were able to finish the season, crown a regular season champ, crown an “A” and “B” champion and to play the game we love.
With that said, we are starting the pre-registration process for the 2022/23 Season. The plan is to return to 44 games with 8 teams and 14 total players per team. If this past season has taught us anything, each team averages 1 to 2 players missing per night on a roster of 12 total players makes it difficult to enjoy the game. So right now, We are only asking for a commitment.
We do not know what COVID-19 restrictions or vaccination requirements will be in place, if any. We do not know the total cost for the upcoming season yet as we are waiting on all contracts to be finalized but per our mandate the price of play will still be the most cost-effective cost for adult hockey in the region. We are looking at replacing 1 or 2 of the team jerseys and looking at replacing some of the team socks. We will be also updating the Website and will be investigating League sponsorship and possible re-branding.
So, in preparation of next year, we would like you to consider these points:
- Will you be returning to play? If so, complete the attached application and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your name will be logged and a spot will be reserved. If you want to issue a $100 deposit your spot will be saved. If not, when the deadline to pay is issued, if you do not pay , your name will be moved to the waiting list. All payments can be made by e-transfer to email@example.com
- If you know a new player who would enjoy this league, send his contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact him.
- If you wish to be a captain, contact us at email@example.com
- If you are a sponsor, indicate your intention to sponsor to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will issue an invoice once the costs are known.
- Any improvements that we can make, I would ask that you contact your captain from this past year and we can discuss it at the Summer Captain’s Meeting.
