The final Melbourne derby for the season was on Saturday, it drew over 1,500.

That one in the photos would be around the same.

Spoke with some guys who have played in the AIHL and they said it is similar to low level Canadian Jr.A (think SIJHL) or decent Jr.B (think KIJHL, PIJHL).

I saw them play a few times, and I would agree with this.

What do the players make in the AUS League?

Hey there,

I know this is kind of random, but I'm curious to find out what the pro players make in AUS. I've always played hockey at high levels, but was never drafted to the CHL, and stopped playing.

I'm 26 now, and better at hockey than ever before.

What do the pros make in terms of salary there?
Do they have open try-outs or anything in the off-season?

Any info would be great, as I'm from Canada, and wouldn't know where to start.

The teams are semi-professional & none of the local lads actually get paid, they do get discounts/concessions for airfares etc...

I am not 100% sure if the import players actually get paid, i assume they would.

Don't know if any of the Perth posters here went but Thunder beat the North Stars 4-2 this afternoon. Pretty good crowd on hand of around 200ish I'd say. Not bad considering it's a fair drive away for some people.

Not sure if anyone would of seen it byut Last Saturdays Age had a tremendous article about the similarities between AFL and Hockey, new AIHL fans and where they are coming from, the history of the sport in Australia and forcasting of it's future was a great read. Im still searching for a copy online!


Not the article I am talking about but still good: http://www.theage.com.au/sport/for-a...903-1jrgh.html

http://www.theage.com.au/sport/ice-h...831-1jkxj.html

Like the rule adaptions I think in the main. Australians are more likely to swing to the 'hard but fair' mantra, especially found when I started watching alot of the cheap hits physicality, initionally annoyed me until I got use to it.

I havent been to any games yet still trying to force a mate along, but might just fly solo next year.

I'm moving to Australia for 6 months beginning this November, and I'm wondering if it's worth bringing my equipment down? Are there casual hockey leagues, and what kind of costs are there to join? I played up to Junior B (but was weak for that level) in Alberta when I was 18, but that was 10 years ago. My play has fallen off now since I've played casually (once every couple weeks) since then, though I'm probably in better shape now (I've shifted more to individual sports). We'll be staying in Melbourne. Also, if there are any ex-pat bars where Canadians congregate, I definitely still plan to follow the NHL/Canucks. Thanks!

Absolutely bring your gear!

I am in Melbourne and there is definitely hockey here. Casually you can do drop-in and stick and puck at the Icehouse. There is an amateur league (see IHV) and summer hockey starts this week. If you want to play start contacting teams, lots are pretty full. Not being Canadian I am not sure what your skill level equates to, but for Summer Div 2 is non-checking I believe you might fit there. Costs wise, for summer I think it is about $200 + $120 IHA compulsory registration (insurance).

Bars-wise not sure, there is the Canadian club or whatever, but from Canadian friends here I gather they are a kinda family age group, ie not that great for the 20-30 year olds.
