Who actually plays hockey on HF?

This could go in the polls section. but I think it has a better exposure on the main board. It'll be interesting to see who's in what camp on agreement on certain rules and decisions.

Been playing since I was 14. Currently a Jr B prospect although the likelihood of me making it full time is the same as shooting a grape through a cheerio at 10,000 paces.

I'm in a beer league. We play Saturday's evening at Le Collisé de Trois-Rivieres. After a couple of years of not playing I joined this small league at going back to hockey was one of the best decision I've made.

Started skating when I was 4 and played in league the year after. I had to quit when I was 16 due to a major knee injury that required surgery.

Incident happened on ice when one of my teammates got hit from behind (playing in midget AAA). I immediately dropped my gloves and jumped the guy that did it and that put a target on my back for the rest of the game. Late in the third, someone intentionally stuck out their knee and caught me as I was rushing the puck through the neutral zone. The pain hit right away and I couldn't put my weight on it at all.

Since then, I play for fun on out-door rinks but am still dealing with the pain even today. That's pretty much held me back from even playing in a beer league.

Currently playing u21 AAA in Canada. Decent chance I get a d3 scholarship this year, so hoping for the best.

Unless the D3 you're talking about is some sort of code I'm not aware, no, there isn't:

A lot of us do, but not all of us are very good!

I'm a decent D/E level player. I can hang with guys who play C, but I'd probably be the worst guy on the ice on a nightly basis. In any case I don't play league hockey anymore, opting instead for a mix of stick and puck, pond hockey, and pickup with my friends.

I started playing ice hockey about a year a half ago; definitely the most fun sport that I've ever played. I wish I would have started earlier in life, but I'm glad that I started.

I've been skating since I was four and still love the game to today. Trying to get kids to follow and keep skating. I have made some of the best friends in the world through hockey

Sorry, I don't mean a full ride. Actually we just had a tournament in Pennsylvania and two kids on our team got tryouts for the d1 team at a school, and if they don't make it they still get most of it paid for playing on the d3 team.

Relax boss.

Yes and love it. I've played many sports growing up, but hockey has always been the most challenging, whether its physically or technically. Pond and shinny hockey is a lot of fun, but nothing beats the feeling of winning games with the team.

No, they won't. Schools don't have a D1 and D3 hockey team at the same school. If they have a D1 team, they'll have a D1 club team. If they have a D3 team, they'll have a D3 club team. They won't have D1 and D3 at the same school and D3 doesn't give out full or partial scholarships. A D3 school can give you an academic scholarship, or a scholarship to play an instrument, because they want you on their hockey team, but they can't give you an athletic scholarship, at all. And if you're friends tried out at a D1 school, I doubt the school is going to give them academic scholarships because they want them on their club team so bad.

I played street hockey a couple of times, does that count lol. On the entire hf site I think less than 5% have actually played hockey. Less than 1% have made into pro territory.
