2019-2020 SHL Champions

We had a change up in captains this year. We lost Patrik Lundback as the captain of Aware. Aware’s front office requested a trade of Justin St-Denis in the hopes of finally bringing the SHL Cup home. We also had Mike Wilson step down from being a captain. Stepping up, we had Harrison Oztemel becoming captain for the new team PEAK Biolabs, and Jordan Ashton becoming the captain for Hertz with Brad Wilson staying with the Novotel Spitfires.

For the first half of the season, Aware was doing the complete opposite of what they did last season, losing 7 of their first 9 games, but they continued to fight and won 5 more games, but this left them in last place of the season. Could captain, Justin St-Denis, pull off another upset to give himself a threepeat?

2017-2018 SHL Championship

The 2017-2018 season was another great season.  The first night of games to start off the season had the Sukhumvit Spitfires beating Aware 5-2 and Expedia top Hertz 7-4.  

We also saw our first forfeited game, when the Spitfires had to forfeit to Expedia when their goaltender mixed up the game times.  We had Aware pretty much dominate the majority of the season and go on an 11 game winning streak.  Hertz really struggled at the beginning of the season, but as the season wore on, they really came together as team and beat Expedia for the third seed to play the Spitfires in the semifinals.

In our semi-finals games, both Aware and Hertz eliminated Expedia and the Spitfires in 2 games.

For the finals this year, we had a one game, winner take all.  Hertz came out strong and was leading 4-0 at the end of the first period with two goals from Mike Triacca as well as goals by Bill Bredesen and Andy Brine.  In the second period, Hertz captain, Justin St. Denis scores one to make it 5-0.  Aware tried to mount a comeback with two goals from Mangkorn Sukweboon and a goal by Corry Day.  Hertz’s net minder, Lance Parker closed the net down after that to give Hertz a 5-3 win and the SHL Championship Cup!

2016-2017 SHL Championship

We had a great first season topped off with a whirlwind of a post season.  The first round of the playoffs started off with a the Sukhumvit Spitfires (1) facing off against Hooters Nana (2) and Sport Corner-Titanium (2) going head to head with the Aware (3).

 

Hooters Nana swept their best of three series against Sukhumvit Spitfires by squeaking out a win in the first game by 2-1 and in the second game, they came back in the third period to win it 5-3.

 

Aware got the first game of their series by trouncing Sport Corner-Titanium 6-3.  Sport Corner-Titanium were able to hold of Aware’s third period comeback to win the second game 2-1.  In the third game, Sport Corner-Titanium soundly beat the Aware 4-1 to move on to the finals.

 

You would think Hooters Nana would be ready for this game with having a break that Sport Corner-Titanium didn’t have, but they looked a bit flat in this one as Sport Corner-Titanium destroyed them 10-1.  In the second game, Hooters Nana came out like they were on fire, and took an early lead.  Things would looking good for Hooters Nana at the end of the second period as they were leading Sport Corner-Titanium 3-2, but Sport Corner-Titanium scored 2 unanswered goals in the third to steal the victory from Hooters Nana and win the inaugural Siam Hockey Leagues Championship with a final score of 4-2!
