League Formed

Before 9/11 and people who cannot legally drink were even born, a little group got together to form a hockey league in New York City.

Formation of Super Team Coorlears Hookers. Dark Rainbows beat Hookers in finals. Pork Fried Rice folds after playoff elimination. Sky Fighters win one game. MDF joins Rehabs and instantly become the best woman to ever play in the league.

Coorlears + Hookers ↗️ Pork Fried Rice ↘️

Formation of free agent team Happy Little Elves, captained by Ben Chadwick. Elves beat Tuques in franchise premier, lose every other game besides tie against Squirrels. Beginning of Modern Era. Last year at Coorlears and Moffo. Fresh Kills shock Hookers in finals. More BTSH HOFers on that team than any other. (Soko, Amy J., Dave GDR, Bob W. and 1-2 more possible)

Happiest Elves

Happy Little Elves

Sky Fighters go from 1 win to champions by beating WTP in finals. Mighty Squirrels disband after playoff loss. Elves played WTP in last game at Moffo. Stakes were high. WTP wins they get first, Elves win, they go .500 after 1-16-1 season. In what is described by some(one) as the Miracle at Moffo the Elves Rusev crush WTP 7 or 8 to 1. Demons bought Elves beer later.

2009

Miracle at Moffo

Butchers, Riots and Poutine Machine debut. League goes from 18 to 20 teams. Late in season Tiffany joins Hookers, beginning the start of the women’s invasion. Gut Rot stuns WTP in at time biggest upset in BTSH history 6-5 in shootout. Butchers then stun Rehabs in OT. Hookers make incredible comeback vs. Filthy in overtime, as Tiffany scores the GWG. Elves and Butchers both stunningly make semis. Elves beat Hookers 3-1 in finals to win what all say is best championship of all time. Hookers lose 3rd final in 4 years.
