  1. VSN PRESENTS: THE SEASON 76 MOCK DRAFT Hey there everyone, MattyIce here, and I hope you're having a great day and thanks for dropping in to read our stuff! It's draft day soon and this is the time when moves are made, players get drafted and VHL franchises get ready for the upcoming season while planning ahead for their futures. I mentioned in my preview article that this draft is the first in many seasons that the GM player rule had been dropped, meaning no GM player may reserve a first-round pick to claim their player to their team. This draft has a top

  2. Salutations VHLiens, It's that time of year again. The most controversial forum topic of the off-season is back for it's 7th-annual satirical judgement of the next generation of VHL stars. Despite this being largely a comedic / groaner type of media, my unquestionable status as a sim hockey legend does lend some weight to the status I give out to the rookie crop of VHLers every season. In a future BUST OR LICK, we will be analyzing the results of previous BUST OR LICK articles (or maybe I'll bring in an unbiased third-party researcher) to really show how accurate my ability to pred

  3. S75 Philadelphia Reapers – The greatest VHLM team of all-time The history books will forever show that the Philadelphia Reapers won the S75 Founder’s Cup. Kids will act out Tom Eagles amazing end to end rush to score the Cup winning overtime goal. Fans will long tell the heroics of goaltender Jacob Carson, who’s .921 save % is the best performance in the playoffs in more than 10 seasons. Or they’ll talk about the perseverance of long-term Reapers like captain Darius Marimoto or assistant captains Carson Walkers and Jacob Carson. There are other feats by the team which w

  4. @Toast is back in the VHL, and it seems like we are getting the real deal this time around – not the charred discount version who made a cameo in the early 60's. In fact, it seems like Toast found his motivation back, as Phoenix Dawson currently looks like one of the better prospects available in the S76 VHL Entry Draft. And is there really a single better way to show you're back than by donating 40$ in the league's Holiday Donation Drive and winning an auction for a custom media spot by yours truly – among other things, notice my title and profile picture, which I will be showing off for the

  5. Moving on to our newest, but quickly becoming among the most valued awards, the Frederik Elmebeck Trophy. 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. This season, the nominees, as selected by you, the VHL community, are: @bigAL, for his energetic leadership with the World Juniors Championship, along with his podcast, donations, and work with the V

  7. The awards presentation is nearly over, but I just wanted to drop in and say thank you to those of you who nominated me for the Frederik Elmebeck Trophy! I'm so honored to have been the designated winner of such a prestigious award, and I deeply appreciate the grace this community has given me as I approached it with a new and scary topic. I hope to see the league continue to grow in this direction of inclusivity in the coming seasons!! Thank you again! I'd also be crazy to overlook the huge impact that my fellow nominees have had on the community in the past season. Congratulation

  8. December 18th, 2020 marked the long awaited VHLM On ice debut for Abe Roque. Joining the VHLM as a waiver player shortly before the VHL Trade Deadline (User Profile Page says December 5th was the date she signed up officially) December 14th and over a week has passed. The league seems to be in shambles as Roque, going into Week ending December 13th having earned 19 TPE, 9 days after creating. The AGM or GM of MISS [Both Users are no longer in those positions, with Miami’s AGM now Full Time GM in MISS @Zetterberg(Ray Sheilds is the PERFECT example of the player I strive to be in the VHL one day

  9. That just about does it, folks! With the conclusion of this awards show, the 75th season of the Victory Hockey League will unofficially come to an end, as all eyes will shift towards the Season 76 VHL Entry Draft. It doesn't seem to matter how many times it's said, it still boggles my mind to think that we've now completed 75 seasons! It says a lot about the faithful dedication and commitment that this community has, and it's truly special. Don't want to delve too deeply into that, however, as a very special article commissioned by a @WentzKneeFan036 is on the horizon and will give this subjec

  10. Condor Adrienne and my return to activity. After a great first player in Remy LeBeau and maybe my best sim league player of all time, Thomas O'Malley my activity in the VHL took a hit. Maximoff started off decently in performance, but I wasn't the max-earner that I was with my first two players. This became even worse during the two player era where I had Peter Quill and a few seasons later Adam Warlock. Quill was just above 700 while Warlock was just above 500. Not really numbers I expect from my players, but I was just tired and burned out of sim leagues. It was howev

A couple of things I wanna say before we get to it, this progress report will include not only regular season stats, but postseason stats as well. Another thing I would like to note is that there are some new additions to this team, and there are also people who have left this team. I won't be covering those who left the team, and for the later additions, I'll cover their overall stats in general instead of covering what they did in LVA. Mostly be

  15. Let's start off with our new champions! Looking back, the Malmo Nighthawks had one of the most unlikely runs to the top in VHL history. Moving Lewis Dawson at the trade deadline especially didn't seem like a move a team looking to win a Cup would make, but the results speak for themselves. With the legendary Condor Adrienne in his final season, the likes of Ray Shields, Chris Hylands, Marshall James Frostbeard, Guy Saskamoose, and Grekkark Gyrfalcon rallied together to go on an incredible run, defeating Warsaw and Moscow on their way to take on another expansion franchise seeking their first t

  17. Another year of VHLM hockey is in the books, and tonight we celebrate the teams and players that were able to really take themselves to the next level in Season 75. For many this special night will be one final sendoff before you head to your respective training camps next week and officially become VHL pros. This past season saw two teams jump off the page at you right from the start of the season and surely enough when it came down to the finals for the Founder's Cup, it was the Philadelphia Reapers clashing with the Mexico City Kings. The top team in the west versus the top tea

    It obviously sucks to take over from someone who has been such an influence to both me, and the entire league. I have a lot of respect for Dil and his dedication to the league and to Halifax. Talking with Dil in discord has been one of the highlights of my time in the VHL and I was honestly sad when the charity drive was as successful (?) as it was. I hope I can be half the GM Dil was.

  20. New season, old plans. The only difference is that we pretty much have the youngest squad in this league! A big difference in my books. Other than that, this will be our growing season but I'm still expecting us to play spoilers all the time. Because it's fun, I know. Anyways, back to the thread's subject. This season we will have 3 brand new captains in the play! But first, our honorary captain. We already had that in S74 I believe (Sasakamoose) and now we're back at it. I was considering 4 players for three spots and this particular member said he is ok with waiting. He is a very

  21. Playoff MVP Award "Skylar Rift Trophy" The Skylar Rift Trophy is awarded to the VHLM Playoffs MVP. The award goes to someone who exemplifies an outstanding effort in the postseason, someone who elevates their game to another level to help their team. There were some great choices for this one, but one person clearly stood out amongst the pack. Our runner up really proved his worth after coming over to the Philadelphia Reapers in the first big pre- trade deadline deal in Season 75. Gustav Hjalmarsson managed terrific production in the postseason, potting 6 goals a

  22. Great players dominate the regular season, but a true legend shines when everything is on the line in the playoffs. Tonight, we recognize the MVP of the S75 Playoffs with the Daisuke Kanou Trophy! Although coming up on the losing end, DC Dragons goaltender Stone Wolski @DollarAndADream was stellar in net, with a .929 save percentage and 10 wins. Grekkark Gyrfalcon @Sharkstrong was equally strong, putting up a .927 save percentage and 12 wins. Ray Sheilds @Zetterberg led the eventual champions with 28 points, including the Cup-clinching goal in Game Six, while Chris Hylands @Hylands scored 14

    Draft Night

    Draft day…one of the most exciting days for young players in the VHL. Later tonight all of the s76 draft prospects will know where they will be playing next season. It’s always a big deal for the players and the whole league. One player that is excited for the upcoming draft is Tom Eagles. Many mock drafts have him going between the 3-5 picks which will make Tom the highest ever drafted Eagles. The question now is where will he go? “ I had a few conversations with 3 teams that have top 5 picks, out of all those conversations I think I have a pretty good idea where I will be going” S

  29. Top Executive Award "Jack Reilly Trophy" Any VHLM team that has an ounce of playoff aspirations will have to start off by having a fantastic Dispersal Draft. The Reapers were certainly no exception to this as they put on a masterclass on how to draft efficiently and effectively. Sure, they were loaded up with a lot of picks, but they never missed on any of those picks. Drafting main core players like Jolly Greene Giant, Robert Bouchard, Addison McLaren, Tom Eagles, and others really put Philadelphia in a position to win right from the jump. Then when it came time to add a missing p

Rhynex Entertainment @Rhynex Entertainment led all rookies in Season 75 with 89 points, making a dangerous duo with fellow rookie Gary Rush @G_Rush on the New York Americans, who also put up 85 points of his own.

  35. Season 75 was a different kind of season for Toronto, a rebuilding team with some good young talent, backed up by a star goalie. This Toronto team seemed like it was struggling to find its groove at times this season, but towards the end the group started to find their identity. It's also relevant to mention that this team was close to finding themselves in a wildcard spot towards the end of the season. But what else is there to say about this team? The only thing left is to show off the team. 1. John Merrick @Steve John really has a knack for scoring goals and winning games.

  36. So the S76 VHL Entry Draft is closed, and the sunshine of the following morning is cresting the rooftops of my apartment complex. I realized I still needed some TPE to max this week for Killinger, so I figured I'd get this done early before the sun is well above the sky and I lazily waddle away from my computer to 'adult'. The topic for this short VHL.com article is Toronto's draft, but I won't go into great depth as I plan on doing a podcast with @DoktorFunk and maybe some other members of the Toronto Legion sometime in the future!

  37. Vancouver had a lot of picks, especially in the early rounds. @Beaviss and @Spence King had 7 picks this year, including 5 in the first 2 rounds, and, in my opinion, used them wisely. Obviously, one of those picks included me. Here are the 7 picks made Friday night, and my opinion on them. Enjoy. My grades are not based on talent, but more of about how high they were selected versus how high I perceive their value to be. 10th Overall: Robin Galante Nilsson, D, 242 TPE, @RomanesEuntDomus Not a bad pick. Discipline is a question, but he has good passing and very good defense. He

  42. WARSAW, POLAND - Crowds have been forming in the city centre outside of the Predators' arena for the past 12 hours. With free agency opening tomorrow, and talks that have already commenced, the city capitol of Poland is on the edge of their seat waiting to see what superstar Dakota Lamb does. When the VHL expanded into Poland just 3 seasons ago, some questioned whether or not the city would be able to support a VHL team with the fans. That has been proven and this city has become a fantastic fanbase and very passionate about their Predators. @dlamb was the player that started that excitement.

For one reason so I could be involved in there conversations but also to see how it all worked. I joined a few weeks ago and was waivered ( I think that's the word) to the Saskatoon Wild.

John Merrick - Mikko Lahtinen - Andrew Su Condor Adrienne - Jeff Downey Stone Wolski Making the leap from the All-Rookie Team to the All-VHL First Team is John Merrick @Steve, who only led the VHL in points with 107 to accomplish that feat. He's joined by Andrew Su @Da_Berr, who scored 106 points and was the offensive leader of the Vancouver Wolves. Mikko Lahtinen @Beketov earns First Team honors for the second straight season, as dropping nearly 100 points and repeating as Scott Boulet and Scotty Campbell Trophy winner will certainly do that for you.

Dagmar Havlova @diamond_ace , in her first season with the Warsaw Predators, admirably attempted to be the first forward since Kronos Bailey in Season 68, but with a nice 69 assists, fell just one short of doing so.

For the last couple weeks, I have been trying to figure out which path I should take for my player for S76: To go up to the VHL, or to stay down in the VHLM? Many people in the community have told me to go up, citing stats and HoF chances. Many others have told me to stay down to build up TPE and to achieve more in the VHLM. After having many conversations with people on both sides of the coin, I'm ready to announce my decision to the VHL community. VHLM... you are spared a season of dealing with a capped Hex Ros
