Highest level I ever played was Junior B in Edmonton.
I play in the Alberta Mens League here in Edmonton, the team generally hovers between Div 3 and Div 4. (The teams in div 3 usually have a couple of guys who played in the W or CIS, Div 2 teams usually have a half dozen of those guys per team.) It's a no hitting league, but slapshots are allowed. I've played in this league for the same team for 10 years. We've won our division 4 times, I've won the Goals Against Award twice. So far this season we're tied for first at 7-3 and I'm sporting a GAA of 3.00
I am also playing in the Alberta Mens League and my team is in the top division. It's pretty good hockey, everyone on our team has played a minimum of Jr. B and we've won our division the last two years. The highest level I played was Jr. A but that was 10 years ago. I was good offensively and scored lots of goals but I wasn't good enough for my size at 5'9" and 170 lbs to make it to the next level.
I sure still love playing though, and here's hoping we can get a win tonight!
