Mens league hockey

Is there anyone here involved with any local men's leagues? I grew up playing hockey and ever since high school I've been missing the game.

I'm looking to get on a team and get back to playing!

Anyone know of a team and/or is looking for players?

Wikipedia - Adrenaline Junkie - An adrenaline junkie is somebody who feels as if they are addicted to adrenaline. Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

I played since I was 4. In college, and 5th year while I did my masters. Kinda sad to move into mens league, not as competitive, and I definitely miss checking!! Anyway, I play for the Bulldogs (www.chicagobulldogshockey.com).

Just joined the team and I don't really have pull to add players (plus we have a full roster and sub list, however, if I ever hear we need to find someone, I'll keep you in mind. I know this doesn't help your post, but for future maybe.

Ill keep an ear out too for other teams.

that's an impressive website for a men's league team; what's the deal with it? Affilate with the Chicago Steel, sounds rather impressive. I've played since I was 2, played a year in college til my back went to shit and now I'm playing in West Dundee in a crap league with guys who can barely skate.

Ive always played at Homewood Flossmoor and Southwest Ice Arena in the mens leagues. Not too much time for that these days between work and other things. I get a phone call every once in a while from friends to fill in. I wanted to sign up this year but haven't had a chance. I'll post up when we play some pond hockey later this winter.

There are a few leagues at the Elmhurst YMCA. I know a few neighbors who play and I think Fridays are open games.

Rat Hockey. It's fun every once in a while but it's hard to get an even number of people to where dark and light colored jerseys. Then when you do get a game sort of going nobody wants to change up. Assholes just stay out there for 10 minutes at a time. I have always gone by the rule of skating your ass off for less than 2 minutes and then grab a change. That's what's nice about playing with people who Know how to play hockey. Some people don't have a fucking clue.

I've already posted in here but I'll update.

I play forward and goalie (2 different teams). Actually as of last week I'm not playing at all as I hurt my knee. Stupid play too. Playing goalie, came out of the net to play the puck behind the net, their guy semi-checked me, I wasn't down with that, railed him in the chest, he went down, and as I turned to go back to the net I tweaked my knee/MCL hard (Karma...shouldn't of hit that guy). Was doing slightly better after a week when my dog jumped on me and finalized the deal. We'll see what the orthopedic says tomorrow and determine how long I'll be out for. Sucks.
