Shootout Decides 2022 Championship Final: Rockets Win!
Posted By: uuhadood
Saturday, April 30, 2022



 
TORONTO - As the clock ticked down on the final minute of the 3rd period, it appeared clear the 2022 UUHA Championship Final was headed to a shootout. Such was the balance of a game that saw the Jokers erase three Brockton Rockets leads, knotting up proceedings for the third time midway through the final frame on a plucky Steve Chamberlain marker that solved busy Brockton goaltender Jonathan Dickson on a third-attempt rebound down low.
 
Earlier, Dickson saw his lamp lit by Jokers captain Ted Bisaillion late in the opening frame, and by Gary Rideout Jr. midway through the 2nd. He faced 21 shots over the course of three periods, an effort that would ultimately earn him a Game Star. Dickson's cross-ice counterpart, Burke Lawrence, enjoyed a slightly lighter workout, facing just 12 scoring attempts prior to the game-deciding shootout. Of the three goals scored on Lawrence in regulation time, two came of the stick of sniper Dustin Harris, while the other was potted by Mike Daniels.
 
Bisaillion and Chamberlain finished the night with a goal and an assist each, while Spring Fling league MVP Steve Levine was held to just a single helper. Robert Campbell joined Harris in the multiple-point club for the Rockets, registering a pair of assists.
 
But it was the shootout that promised to serve as the most exciting aspect of this Final, and it didn't disappoint. The jokers, afforded the honour as the President's Cup-winning squad, elected to shoot first, sending Charlie Rishor to centre ice to get things started (as Prince's "When Doves Cry" inexplicably set the dramatic scene). Rishor scored, sending up the Rockets first shooter, Bryan Eelhart, whose attempt was also successful. Next up for the Jokers was Gary Rideout Jr. who failed to solve Dickson. James Neilson was met with the same result for the Rockets, finding a solid piece of pipe next to Lawrence's raised catcher. The pressure was on Levine to get the Jokers ahead in the shootout with a goal, but his attempt at the top right corner was deflected wide by Dickson. As the captains began to consider their potential fourth shooters, the game's leading scorer, Dustin Harris, approached centre ice and corralled the puck, considering the distance to the net relative to the mileage between Toronto and Ottawa, where he had driven in from for the game. Coming in with speed, Harris feigned left, faked right, then faded back to the left side, lifting a ringer of a shot behind Lawrence that toured the upper inner recesses of the net before exiting the other side at velocity.
 
As Championship game-winners go, it was a hell of a shot.
 
With the win, the Rockets captured their second UUHA Championship, capping off a brilliant, albeit abbreviated season and postseason, during which the team registered just a single minor penalty over the course of seven games.
 
Prior to the Championship Final the Humiliation and Gas Station Islanders took to the ice to contest the Consolation Final, which pitted the 5th and 6th place teams (based on Regular Season records) against one another. The final score in that one was 7-5 in favour of the Islanders, who trailed for much of the game but reversed those fortunes with four 3rd-period tallies. Dominic Chartier finished the game with 5 points (2G, 3A) while Mike Thompson lead the Black Wizards offensively, registering 4 points (1G, 3A). Sean Morrison had a hat-trick for the losing side, while Paul Morris, Stephen Cribbin and Luke Scheer all put in multi-point performances. The same was true of Gassers Nick Purdon and Eddie Belanger.

The UUHA expects to return to action at summer's end. Scheduling and logistical details will be determined over the course of the next few months.
 
 
After Three-Year Hiatus, Team Impulse! Wins 2022 Super Cup

Team Impulse! (back row, left to right) Yan Bourassa, Lee Finch, Marc Couture, Oliver Vesely, Tim Vesely, (front row) Wes Gerbrandt, Dom Chartier, Brian Bentley, Mario Vella and goaltender Charlie Campbell.

TORONTO - Team Impulse! has won the 2022 Super Cup tournament Championship, the first such title handed out in three years.
 
The Easter Weekend tournament, which falls under the umbrella of the UUHA and is sponsored by Big Stick Custom Hockey Jerseys, was last held on Friday, April 19, 2019. That was nearly a year before a global pandemic shut down all sorts of aspects of life for billions of people on the planet Earth, including recreational hockey.
 
This year's Super Cup was a slightly more scaled back affair than previous editions, with only nine skaters and a goalie on each of the four competing teams: Team Impulse!, the Rebellion, the Screamin' Jays and Team Ukraine. In the end, it was Team Impulse! making a cream-like rise to the top, handily defeating the Screamin' Jays in a lopsided Championship Final.
 
Team Impulse! got off to a strong start in the tournament, taking out the Rebellion 5-2 in the opening game of the round-robin portion of the day, before drawing 2-2 with the Screamin' Jays in their second game. Their ticket to the Final was ultimately punched with a 4-0 can opener over Team Ukraine later in the day.
 
The Screamin' Jays journey to the Final was more circuitous, initially defeating Team Ukraine 4-2, then tying Team Impulse!, then once again posting a round-robin series draw, this time a 3-3 result against the Rebellion, for whom a win would've resulted in a Championship Final berth as well. That game was not without controversy, as the Jays dressed a novel substitute player without first clearing the substitution with the opposing team's GM - a long-held common courtesy, if not a prescribed formality.
 
At any rate, Team Impulse! likely benefitted from an hour-long period of rest prior to the Final, whereas the Screamin' Jays enjoyed a mere 10-minute rest while the ice was being resurfaced between their last round-robin encounter and the Big Game.
 
Dominic Chartier stood out as the principal offensive force on the Super Cup-winning squad, accounting for five of the team's seven goals in the Final, and four of the team's eight round-robin markers. Courtenay Stevens and Nick Wilcox accounted for most of the scoring for the Screamin' Jays, while Dustin Harris and Jimmy Murphy lead the way for the Rebellion. Sean Morrison was the leading scorer for Team Ukraine, which was the squad most adversely effected by late Covid-related player absences, of which there were several.
 

Jokers Make Significant Donation to Red Door Family Shelter

TORONTO - As if they weren't already having a great season on the ice, the Safety First Jokers Hockey Club scored a major goal off the ice last week by making a $4,000.00 donation to the Red Door Shelter.
 
Jokers' captain Ted Bisaillion, seen in the photo with teammates presenting the cheque, thanked his fellow players, the team's corporate partner Safety First and Shoppers Drug Mart for helping out. Red Door's Juliana Kedzior Kaminski added, "We are incredibly appreciative of the Jokers Hockey Club and their partners for this generous donation. These funds will make a huge difference in the lives of many women, children and families at the red Door who are experiencing homelessness or fleeing domestic violence." The only question remaining is, can the Jokers turn this into a 2022 UUHA Championship? Well weather they hoist the Cup again or not, it would seem they have already won. Congratulations and respect to Captain Ted and the Jokers on behalf of all the other UUHA teams and players.
