New rules for Fall ’20 5-ON-5

The New Offside: We’re introducing the hybrid offside to create larger attacking zones while retaining the neutral zone for transition and stretch passes. How does it work? In order to gain the attacking zone, the blue-line remains as the line of entry for the purposes of the offside rule. Once the line has been gained and possession has been established, the red line now becomes the clearance line. Until the defending team clears the puck past the red line, the puck remains in the attacking zone. Face-off Adjustments: All face-offs will take place at one of the four (4) face-off dots located closest to the crease, or the centre-ice face-off dot in the case of the start of a period, goal scored, offside, or any other need for a neutra…

Leagues to be suspended for 2 weeks

VIASPORT has implemented a 2 week shut down at CANLAN along side ASHL/ICE604.
We must do our part in keeping the cases low while keeping others including ourselves safe. It was a privilege to play hockey during this time and who knows what will happen in the near future.

The next 2 weeks schedule is suspended and when it returns in Nov 21st. That's right when playoffs begin, so that's another portion we're going to have to figure out. There is a chance that if the cases keep surging this season might come to a halt, but we'll wait and see.
Stay safe out there everyone from ICE604/ASHL & CANLAN.

Todd Bertuzzi suggests he'll move back to Vancouver if Joe Biden wins the U.S. Presidential Election

Times are tense in the United States of America. It's election day and Americans are lining up at polling stations to cast their vote for who they want to be President for the next four years. A Presidential election is always an uneasy time, but the current election has been particularly divisive. That's why, when former-Canuck Todd Bertuzzi made his regular appearance on Sportsnet 650's morning show, the Starting Lineup, hosts James Cybulski and Perry Solkowski asked Bertuzzi about his experience of the current situation as a Canadian living in the U.S. "I tell you, it's interesting times, especially for a Canadian living here," said Bertuzzi. "I've been here for, I don't know, about 15 years, 20 years total, and I've never seen…

Edmonton sports legend Joey Moss dies at 57

Edmonton sports legend Joey Moss has died at the age of 57.

Moss has been a beloved member of the Edmonton Oilers for decades. He became the NHL team’s locker room attendant in 1984, after he was recommended by The Great One himself — Wayne Gretzky. The two met when Gretzky was just 20 years old. He was dating Moss’ sister at the time.

“We were all lucky enough to be part of his life for a lot of years,” Gretzky said in a statement on behalf of all the players who got to know Moss.

“His love for life always brought a smile to anyone who met him. Whether it was a coffee before practice or a big hug after a great win or a tough loss, he would put life in perspective.
