Boston PizzaBoston Pizza MHL President’s Cup Trophy

For the past 13 seasons the Mississauga Hockey League has awarded the President’s Trophy to the “A” team who collects the highest percentage of available points to the end of the Regular Season.

On February 1st, MHL President Brian Webster presented the trophy to the Lorne Park Clarkson Wild Midget Sr. 111 team.  Congratulations on a perfect record through the regular season!


 OHF Midget ChampionshipLorne Park Clarkson Wild

The MHL, in conjunction with the Midget A Lorne Park Clarkson #111 team, will be hosting the prestigious OHF Provincial Championships Apr 7-9.  It is an honour to be a part of these championships for the players, coaches and parents and no less so for the on-ice officials.  The MHL and GTHL will be splitting the officiating crew.  There will be 5 Referees and 10 Linespersons participating in the event.  They have been selected from a group of approximately 450 officials that officiate under the GTHL umbrella.  Unlike in the MHL, where the Midget A division uses a four official system, this OHF tournament will incorporate the 3 official system which is used in the other Midget A areas under the OHF


Lorne Park Clarkson Wild Dinner-Dance

Lorne Park Clarkson members came out in force for 1st Annual LPC Wild Dinner-Dance and Silent Auction.  Almost 600 volunteers, parents and community members attended the newly merged association’s fundraiser on Friday, January 27nd at Lakeshore Convention Centre. A huge selection of silent auction items was on display to raise funds for the association. Attendees enjoyed a buffet dinner, dancing and an opportunity to socialize with their hockey community.  A “WILD” time was had by all!

Support your association and enjoy a night out away from the rink.  Phantom Wolves, Applewood and Erindale Hockey Associations have recently held their special evenings.  Upcoming dinners being held are Meadowvale Hockey Association on Friday, February 24th and Port Credit Hockey Association on Saturday, February 25th.  Check your association website for details.

Phantom Wolves Novice Gold win at London

Congratulations to Phantom Wolves Novice GOLD (players and coaches) on their win at the 2017 Bryon Optimist Competitive Tournament in London, Ontario this past weekend. The team went 6-0 in the Tournament to place first in the pool and to go on to win the Championship game.    We faced against London team in the semi-final and won 5-0. We moved on to the Championship game to face Humber Valley to be down 3-0 and the team fought back in the 3rd period with 41 seconds left we scored to make it a one goal game.   After that with 11 seconds on the clock in the 3rd period we scored the tying goal. The Championship game went into overtime and with only 15 seconds into the overtime we sealed the win on a breakaway.   What a dramatic finish to cap off the fun weekend with the team. Our team played great hockey and the players worked really hard, the goalies allowed only three goals against in the tournament.  Coaching staff and family members are so proud of the team as they played very well.   Would like to thank all the Coaching staff and family members and friends as well as the sponsors whom have supported us this season.

GO PHANTOM WOLVES GO!!!!
