Welcome to the Old Style Hockey Teams website !

2014 - 2015 Season is fast approaching - Old Style played some tremendous hockey last season and look to continue where we left off. The goaltending was solid, defensively as a team we are better and with an increased goal production again this season it is looking very bright for Old Style.

Again this season we will continue to win and lose as a team, we need all three lines to contribute and buy into the defence first approach. We are a solid team and should be one of the top teams in the league this season. 

The season runs from September to March and we play 22 regular season games and then up to 8 playoff games. We currently play at two Edmonton arena's:

Glengarry Arena  13340 - 85 Street

Westwood Arena 12040 - 97 Street

Old Style Hockey is an adult recreational team. Played for the passion of the game by men. The post game ritual of sitting around a cooler full of beer, exaggerating about skill levels or lack thereof is - as important if not more than the game itself. Sportsmanship, Camaraderie and Competition are the key elements.

2014 - 2015 Team Fees are due now it is $330.00 for the season, please get your money to either Kyle or Lee A.S.A.P.

If you will not be able to make any games or practices you can e-mail the Old Style Management Team at oldstylehockeyteam@gmail.com

Great Team Win against Puckers

EDMONTON -- From killing penalties to unlikely scorers, Old Style Hockey is finding all kinds of ways to win.Glen “Ovi” Blade, Tony Perri and Steven Kokotilo (along with others) scored to give Old Style another strong team victory, 11-7 over the Puckers on Thursday night.

The surging Old Style returned to Westwood Arena after a real tough loss the week before against Pilot Sound. With the win last night they look to become one of the hottest teams in the league, they can really be a force down the stretch into the playoffs.

"I think they're confident guys right now and they believe they can win," Vervynck said. "They're not always going to play their best hockey, but we're squeezing wins out.

"Scott Upshall was again sensational in goal, stopping 29 shots the win. Goaltending has not been the concern for Old Style, as both Arno Schewe and Scott Upshall have put them in a position to win most of the games this season. Strong aggressive play from both and arguably the best one – two tandem in the entire league is what we are all proud of.

For whatever reason, Old Style is simply a different team over the last two years. The offence that at time was lacking – this season they are putting pucks in at a record rate and from all three lines. “ Having all three lines and the defence contribute is phenomenal, definitely takes some of the pressure off the “top line” if you can even determine which line that is.

They've thrived on the penalty kill, also. Old Style was 3 for 4 on the PK against Puckers, its sixth consecutive near perfect game (18 of 19) in that category."Penalty killing is about everybody on the ice being more committed than the power play, blocking shots, clearing pucks, goalies making big saves," Bob Kutcher said.

Mike Hymanyk even scored, known more for his defensive play, Hymanyk scored on a backhander late in the first for his first goal of the season. "The boys have been really supportive of me," Hymanyk said. "You just got to put pucks on the net and that's what I did and it went in for me."

"All the defencemen are trying to jump up into the play, whoever has the chance," he said. "That's the game now, and if you want to attack and you have the D join in, it's a big advantage to score a goal.

"Harold Rozak scored a timely goal for Old Style in the second to make it to 7-3. The Puckers, though, could never seriously rally and took only eleven shots in the third. That made it easy enough for Upshall to earn his latest win.

"It doesn't matter if we're down a goal or up a goal, we're sticking to the system, even though we've got enough good players to score goals to come back or to play good enough defence to bring it home," Rozak said.

"We've found a way to get into our comfort level early and just play our game," Old Style forward Tony “Boom Boom” Perri said.

“Personally I can’t wait for the next game.”
