We're dedicated to you and to the game.


Our Mission:

The Old Time Hockey League was founded with a single goal: to offer safe, fun, competitive adult hockey to anyone desiring to play that fits our culture. Our league strives to provide a structure that’s conducive to meeting this goal of fair and safe play. Each year, our committee reviews and evaluates current league rules and procedures to ensure we are offering the best and safest experience possible for each player.

Team Formation:

Players are drafted every year by 4 new captains that are regularly rotated through the years. We aim to make teams balanced based on skill level to create teams of even strength, while considering guys that also want to play together, in particular if they are new. However, we also have a responsibility to make games fair and competitive. Therefore, we reserve the right to move players between teams, if necessary.

Our Facility:

Our facility is a state-of-the-art ice facility run by Canlan Icesports, Oakville

Members of the OTHL shall refrain from comments or behaviours, which are disrespectful, offensive, abusive, racist or sexist. In particular, behaviour, which constitutes harassment, abuse or bullying, will not be tolerated, including and especially through email and/or other social media avenues.

The Old Time Hockey League (OTHL) was founded in the mid-2000's by a group of boyhood friends from Applewood (Mississauga) who desired to play hockey where fun and camaraderie are key to a competitive but clean league.
