About the Boni-Vital Old timer Hockey League

The Boni-Vital Old Timers Hockey League is going into its 37th year, organized in 1979..The League started with 4 teams playing at the Lorette Arena.Through the  37 years, the league has  expanded to as many as 10 teams and for many years playing with less teams. At present the the League consists of 7 teams and 120 players.
 Here is a list of the teams(some have had name changes) that once participated in the League. Packers AutoBody, Rothesay Maple Leafs, Gabe Shell, Stony Mountain Bulls, Norvilla Nationals, Superior Scale, Sudden Impact, Symington Slugs, CN Leafs, Stars, Nicloett Nics, Raiders, Riels  Blues, Vipers, to the current
7 teams  being  Bandits, Bears, Bugs, Ile Des Chenes, McD TV, The Pac and Lorette Smokies. 

   The season starts in October after Thanksgiving and runs until March with a Play-off Tournament. Each team plays a 36 games schedule playing twice a week plus playoffs. After Christmas  the league has a FRIENDSHIP TOURNAMENT. Players who participate get rearranged onto 4 teams. The Tournament encourages players to get to know the othe rplayers and their  teams. Games are played out of several arenas St.Vital, Winter Club, Ile Des Chenes and Lorette.

   The BVHL is a player run league and currently has approx. 120 players. The league focuses on players 38 years and up. The majority of players are between the ages of 45 to 65. The BVHL focuses on friendship and a camaraderie  we encourage through the rules and the way the league is run. We work hard to provide a fun enviroment to enjoy the game of hockey with NO Slap Shots, NO Body Checking along with the players who work hard to keep the ice safe for everyone to get some exercise and to get to know the like minded players who just want to play. 

The Boni-Vital Old Timers Hockey League  is a unique and special league. At times we have had brother combinations, father and son combinations and at least 25 years separating the oldest from the youngest player. We are pushing the desire into everyone that this is an OLDTIMERS LEAGUE. Because someday, we all will be old.

     Here is some nostalgia from the old Boni-Vital Hockey League books.

For the players that have reached the GOLDEN AGE  and beyond.
