From what I gather, this league is surprisingly solid project. Nice to see hockey gaining traction in Australia.

Double header = one game Saturday and then one on Sunday.

is there a chance the Australian hockey league can go to a full pro league?

I'll be moving to Australia in January (Sunshine Coast/Noosa-area) and are looking for hockey teams to watch/play in/referee? Anyone got any advise? PM me! Thanks.

That's what I thought. But wont be a problem to go to Brisbane 2 times a week maybe to practice. I'll look it up more when I get there, fly in on the 4th of february!

I went to my first hockey game a few months back in Newcastle to watch the North Stars against a Melbourne team.

Have to say I was very impressed, and it certainly got me more interested in the sport.

I've since been watching a bit of the NHL and really enjoying it. Still trying to work out who to go for...

How's the level of hockey in the AIHL?

Also, definitely go Vancouver! Lots of Canucks fans in Australia!

I read somewhere the Australian league might combine with the New zeland league, or atleast make a separate league like champions league. Any news about that?

They had Trans Tasman league in 2012 where two teams from New Zealand travelled to Australia to play against two teams from AIHL. It was supposed to be played again in New Zealand in 2013 but the Australian teams didn't want to come to New Zealand due to the travelling costs so the Trans Tasman league is currently not on the agenda.

Australia wants to find development rather from Europe than working with New Zealand. That's what I've been told about this situation.

I'm only new to the NHL so it was hard to gauge how good the AIHL game was- but I definitely enjoyed it.

Sorry - I went with the Red Wings!

That's okey, thanks for your help! I'll find something when I'm actually there, wont be a problem. Can't really argue with the Wings either, lots of swedes on the team!

To bad they would be natural partners in the development and haveing a diverse and stronger league together, but yeah transportation coasts are a problem.

I am just starting out in the sport but I will be learning here in Perth to play. Relatively active and coming from an AFL background should give me a start. The lack of skating ability is apparently going to be an issue but I have plenty of time and money to make that better.

Would love to represent WA one day.

Well. Travel costs are a big problem when you guys think about a combined league AUS/NZ. The distance of Sydney and Auckland is the same more or less as London to Istanbul! Only that in the second case you would have 7-8 countries in between.

The distance Perth -> Auckland is 5300 km, the same distance as London -> Novosibirsk or London -> Lagos/Nigeria or London -> New York.

AIHL 2014 has started, went to the Melbourne Mustangs vs Sydney Ice Dogs game tonight, Mustangs won 6-3. Was a good encounter, quite bruising in parts too.

4th game I've watched down here live, easily the quickest tempo and highest skilled.

@ Wunderpanda the home side in the clip is the Canberra Brave. They are the newest AIHL franchise that replaced the original Canberra Knights that existed until last year when their owner pulled the plug. The Canberra players went to the AIHL and asked if they could buy the franchise or a new licence to which they were told if they could raise the money they could take over the running of the club which they managed to raise the capital for. The name brave was chosen to replace the knights name and they play at the Phillips Ice Arena in Canberra and represent the Australian Capital Territory in the League.
