  1. It's been a crazy year for @LuluSalesAway and me. Between switching jobs, moving states, and still being in school it seems to never end. Well, we decided that it wasn't enough and that we wanted more to add on. Since I consider the VHL to be another family of mine, I wanted to share with you all some amazing news. Coming January 2022 the VHL will gain another member (don't worry, I'll manage their player until they're old enough...kidding of course). Here's to our first baby!

  2. Beketov

    New VHLM Commissioner

    Hello All! As you are likely all aware by now with @Acydburn taking over the VHLE with Vic it has been decided that someone else will jump in as a member of the green team to replace him. Given that the founder’s cup final has finished (congrats Yukon!) it seems a great time to get things changed over in the VHLM leadership. After an application process with many great candidates it has been decided that @McWolf will be taking over as the newest member of team green and will work alongside @diamond_ace as the newest VHLM commish. The blue team wishes him all the best i

  3. Hi friends! After Beaviss stepped down from his role as Commissioner, @Beketov and I made the decision to maintain our 2-person team, with the understanding that we would eventually add a third member, when the time was right. As some of you may have noticed, the past two weeks have seen a wane in activity from myself, as I've had an opportunity to grow in my career, which resulted in less time in the interim for the league. With that in mind, Bek and I believe now is the right time to add a third member to the team. So, without further adieu, please welcome your newest

  4. One of these days I’ll be able to start a season without a GM change, just gotta get enough new guys in, right? As always an amazing group of candidates applied but ultimately passion for the team won us out. That’s why, starting season 79, the GM of the defending champion Warsaw Predators will be none other than the captain who led them there, @dlamb. Congrats lamb, you have some hefty shoes to now fill!

  5. Good day fellow VHLers, future VHLErs, residents of the #hype channel, and everyone else. First of all, thank you to everyone who has voted in the 3 VHLE team polls over the past month or so, everyone who has contributed to the discussions and suggestions around team logos and concepts, and just generally those who have helped make the slow unveiling of the VHLE a very exciting event to be part of. A special thank you as well to those who helped out with logo making, especially of course @KaleebtheMighty and @Zetterberg - we may be needing your services again in the near future!

  6. Hey VHL @Members! Anyone who has been around the VHL for awhile will surely know, or at least be vaguely aware, that July 18th, specifically July 18th, 2007, is the VHL's birthday! That means today marks the day that our community turns an incredible 14 years old. As an old fart that has been around since that day I can say that is stuns me every year when this post goes up that we're still going when you consider that leagues back in 2007 rarely made it to 3 years, let alone 14. As always though, we aren't just putting some gifs up and calling it a day, we aren't stupid. We know y

    Yukon GM Change

    Yukon GM @Juice brought it to @VHLM Commissioner attention that things were beginning to get busier in his life, and between various real life responsibilities, it was better to have someone new who could give the team 100% attention rather than him trying to linger on with the team and perhaps having divided attention as a result. In the same conversation, it was brought to our attention that the same is true of @fromtheinside, and so the whole Yukon staff would be vacating. As a result, we've chosen from one of our final selections from the Ottawa job (which was coincidentally less than

  8. I've been having crap going on all day and had a lot of time to reflect on... a lot. I reflected a lot on many things, my past, my present, my future, if I would even have a future. It was kinda deep, but one thing a really epic doctor told me today is to take life seriously. I know, a weird opening, a little backstory for y'all. I've been dealing with GERD for the majority of my life, it's a horrendous disease that makes a lot intolerable. I can't eat my favorite food, I can't drink my favorite drinks, I can't even take long car rides or be out super long because it affects my ab

  10. I've done redraft articles in the past and enjoyed them--in fact, I've enjoyed draft-related articles quite a bit in general. My GM-ness kind of takes me out of the world of writing about the current draft or doing a mock, but redrafts are always an option and for that reason I'll be going 10 seasons back from the upcoming VHL entry draft and looking at Season 69. I don't have the best memory of what VHL roster needs were back in the day, so I'll be making my best educated guesses based on my impressions of team rosters in the S69 index--not that that makes a huge difference in man

  11. Of course... of course there would be a tie. Of all the things that could have happened, we had a tie. And, we asked the VHL community what they wanted. Really, I was hoping that they would want us to sing our own separate songs, but NOOOOOOO, "wE wAnT a DuEt!!!!" Well, thanks to all of you demanding this from us, @Juice and I have officially called a truce between San Diego and Yukon. It's been a heated 2-season rivalry, but enough is enough. There's been too much pain. Working through this duet, through this song, it's brought us closer together than ever before. Well, here it

  12. ROUND ROBIN RECAP To start off the tournament we saw the re-emergence of Team USA as they took off to a 7-3-0 record good enough for first seed in the playoffs, followed closely by Team World (6-3-1). With Canada’s round robin success, we saw Team Nordic (4-6-0), Team Western Europe (4-6-0), and the S76 champions Team Mercenaries (4-4-2) get off to less than desirable starts then they would have hoped. Team Canada was left sitting right at .500 as they went 5-5-0. Team Record GF/GA

  13. Hello everyone and welcome to the 2nd installment of the draft combine interviews. I managed to catch up with 13 prospects eligible to be drafted in this upcoming offseason, and there's plenty of variety here between new and older members. It's always a pleasure to gather some new details about the young guns entering the league and sharing with you, the community. I gave the draftees the option to be interviewed as a member or as a player, so now you have the chance to learn alot about the players or members. Players were asked a little about themselves and their performance, t

I have to keep my writing skills sharp anyways. Personal Life Things have been going great for me lately! I managed to score over 95 in all of my second sem classes, including a 94 on my Computer Science final and got a small scholarship for my efforts!

Named in the honor of Frederik Elmebeck, a wonderful man who engaged our community with incredible passion and positivity before he was taken from us all far too soon, this award is to honor the lasting legacy of Elmebeck by recognizing the member who best served the VHL community.

  20. This year, Team Canada looks to reemerge as a force at the World Junior Championship. As the GM this season I have decided to put as much thought into the meaning behind the logo and jerseys worn as I have been putting into rounding out our roster. The objective here was to preserve the patriotism of wearing the flag, along with bringing some much needed awareness and light to the reality of the country's history. Our players uniforms at this years tournament aim to symbolize solidarity with Indigenous communities and encourage people to learn the history of Indigenous people and the legacy

  21. Big win, couldn't ask for a better way to send off my tenure with Warsaw (duh). ggs to Seattle To everyone that contributed to this franchise's history during my time running the team, big or small, thank you. To the players that have been here for a long time, that have battled for this team and been patient through some tough exits, this is the culmination of those efforts. And of course I can't forget to mention @dasboot who spent a long time as a great player and AGM for the team (definitely a much better AGM than @New Member Guide), your name goes on this one too bud.

  22. S78 Team Awards With high hopes going into S78, the Prague Phantoms had a bittersweet campaign. They came within two wins of advancing to the Continental Cup Finals but lost in six games to the eventual champion Warsaw. Thus, the Phantoms were unable to secure a Cup for captain and franchise cornerstone, Thomas Landry II @Doomsday before his retirement. As a consolation prize, he’ll have plenty of team awards and records to his name. Here are the S78 Prague Phantoms’ Team Awards as voted by the players and management: Best Defenseman Battre Sands

  23. dear diary, Lots has been on my mind about the league lately. Since my last point task, sonnet has announced that he’s done with the league, rory and muff have decided to step down from their GM positions, more VHLE discussions have been presented to the league, and Elmebeck nominations have opened. It’s always sad to see beloved members step away, but I, of course, always support people doing what’s best for them. I’m glad we got a chance to do a podcast before he decided to dip, especially because that was something that he mentioned that he wanted to try. Podcasts ar

I just felt like I needed to do one, especially going into my 4th season with somebody who isn’t even supposed to be in the VHL. Who? Shaggy Tipton. Yeah I know, you probably don’t know who he is. He’s a pretty cool dude. He’s played for 3 teams his entire career. Signed from waivers by the Aces, drafted by the Kings, and finally signed by the Menace. He has a pretty cool story, just like your player does! Wanna hear about it? No? Well then why are you here? ——

There were a lot of good apps out there for this one, and several of you have helped inform our process for when the larger batch of openings come up as a result of the E beginning next offseason, but for now, the guy we have chosen:

It was a quality evening, filled with terrible puns, much-deserved recognition, and the backing of an absolutely awesome group of fans, friends, and VHL family! It's hitting home just now that serious changes are on the way. As we officially set our sights on Season 79, this is the final season that the VHL and VHLM will function as the primary two leagues. The VHLE will be beginning in Season 80, and signs that it's coming are becoming more and more evident. The tab now appears on th

Each VHL General Manager has the option to nominate their own candidate, making absolutely sure that each player deemed to be deserving wasn't inadvertently left out of the discussion by the Awards Committee. Naturally, this led to a bit of a crowded field, but there were four candidates who stood out above the rest, and became this season's finalists: Chris Reynolds @Crstats23 S77: 29G, 41A, 70P, 21, 75PIM, 105HIT, 14SB S78: 46G, 55A, 101P, 24, 49PIM, 97HIT, 17SB Brendan

Competition was fierce in the European Conference, but the Predators were the clear class of the conference, finishing 11 points ahead of the second place London United by season's end. Led by a torrid season by Aloe Dear @Renomitsu, the Predators feasted on the competition all season long, falling just short of the Victory Cup on a tiebreaker. In the playoffs, Dakota Lamb @dlamb averaged an insane two points per game, finishing with 34 points in 17 games, leading Warsaw past the Malmo Nigh

But, I thought I would go in another direction to keep the hype alive, get my TPE this week, and stretch the team's identity to give it a "possible refresh".

  41. Intro Malmo has ended up having a wild off-season, but not in the way many were thinking. While many would have predicted trades to be the topic of discussion, this is not the case as Malmo hasn't made a single trade the entire off-season. The bigger news ended up being that Malmo didn’t move any of their 3 1st round picks. As the draft went on, it became clear that the picks weren’t gonna move. This ended up being a great thing as Malmo got an arguably top 5 player in the draft, as well as 2 more solid late 1sts. In this media spot, I’ll be going over what Malmo roster looks like,

Born in Stalingrad Russia this goal keeper is a force to be reckoned with, using his lazer sight eyes and his inhuman reaction time, Menace absolutely has it all. The Russian spent many of his early days in the freezing cold winters catching snowflakes out of the air with pin point accuracy.
