I hope all of our fans & friends will join us for helping with a Fund Raiser for the team, Cooked up by the Little Knights Hockey Parents. All are welcome and the Food begins getting served around 7:00pm to 10pm. It’s just $7 a plate, where can you get a deal like that?

Tribute to “Chewey & Tubs” :

Today, two veterans in long standing are retiring from the OTHC. They’ll both be missed in so many unique ways. We will miss your presence on & off the rink. We will miss your good humor, your willingness to participate  – especially when we were facing some real obstacles but we will miss most of all your personalities. Thank you for that. Thank you for all you have contributed to this organization.
I remember a Lake Placid tournament in 2004 with the VIPERS, and a younger Chewie was our goalie. I was trying to nap in my room but Chewie – who was in the adjacent room – would have none of that, and knocked incessantly on the wall while chuckling until such time I woke up, got dressed, and went out for a few jars with him. I had an awesome time that night, and really got to know him so much better.  Thanks Chewie! That is him in a nutshell, and I’ll never forget that. He is a terrific teammate, and I don’t think I ever saw him get rattled. The same goes for Jimmy Tubbs. JT is a stalwart who never left anything on the rink – he always gave you 100% and you never saw Tubby come unglued. Goals and assists didn’t matter. He played intense, and was one of the most honest players I’ve had the pleasure of sharing ice with. And he could hoist a beverage or three!
I want to wish you both well. I know you plan to relax on Sundays now. I hope you enjoy and find new meanings beyond Sunday night hockey. You deserve all the best. May you find it. Thanks for your friendship – I’ll never forget you guys.
