hey folks, so while we in north america argue about ‘who hockey belongs to’ there is a for real hockey emergency happening. as some of you may know i’m a big fan of the AIHL, the Australian Ice Hockey League. now this league is tiny, only 8 teams and it’s run mostly by volunteers in a country that doesn’t really have much of a winter but this crew of people are still passionate about hockey. sadly the owners of one of the original teams, the Canberra Knights, announced this week they are packing up their sticks and calling it a day. they did this without talking to the players who just want to play hockey. the players are now trying to raise the funds to buy the team and get back on track to have there 2014 season (their season is opposite ours like how are season is our, another awesome reason to follow them, hockey all year long).
