REGISTRATION NOW OPEN FOR MSE 2021-22 FALL/WINTER SEASON!

It may feel like the peak of Summer outside, but Fall is coming up fast. And that means that registration for all four MSE 2021-22 fall/winter adult hockey leagues — Fraser, Mount Clemens, Trenton and Southgate — is now open for both teams and individual players!

All leagues will begin play after Labor Day, which falls this year on Sept. 6. In the new season ahead, MSE will once again have the same popular features that continue to make us Michigan's biggest and best adult hockey program, such as stop-time periods . . . customer-friendly payment options to fit most any team's budget . . . reasonable game times and flexible scheduling structured to meet the needs of the players, not the arenas . . . adult hockey's most-visited website, msehockey.com, with complete schedules, rules, contact information, updated standings and playoff brackets . . . and closely monitored leagues and divisions, with adjustments made as needed to ensure every team a season that is as competitive and fun as possible.

And — if there is a problem, with MSE you've got a hockey person to talk to — not a desk jockey, Zamboni driver or a rink manager who is never around when adult leagues play their games.

Teams and individual players can now register online here. The Fraser, Mount Clemens, Trenton and Southgate Fall/Winter brochures can be downloaded off our homepage and paper copies will be available at all host arenas.

Got a question? Shoot us an email at info@msehockey.com or give us a call anytime in Fraser at (586) 296-7987; Mount Clemens at (586) 868-7371; or Trenton/Southgate at (734) 676-3761.

We hope to see you on the ice in September!

FIVE TEAMS COP THE CUP AT 2021 MSE SPRING TOURNEY

Three days of fun and intense hockey over a record of 50 total games produced five champions in the 2021 MSE Cup Spring Tournament!

Held Friday through Sunday, March 26-28, at Fraser Hockeyland in Fraser, the tourney featured numerous entertaining and memorable contests. No fewer than 11 of the 45 games in the preliminary round went to 3-on-3 overtime, and each rink was buzzing every time the puck changed possession, with plenty of standout plays and stellar goaltending.

Following the two days of preliminary play, 10 teams emerged to qualify for a spot in the Championship Final on Sunday in their respective brackets. While none of the championship games required overtime, each matchup was hard-fought and competitive, and when the final horn sounded, Delta's topped The Chop in the Gold Division, 3-1; Busch Snipers bested Sargent Appliance in Silver I, 4-2; Eastside Kings beat Marlboro Reds in Silver II, 4-1; Barons edged Hamilton Mustangs in Bronze I, 2-1; and Solid Gold outlasted Polar Ice in Bronze II, 4-1.

A REMINDER: DRESSING ROOM SECURITY

It's always a good time to review some routine precautions all teams should follow when using the dressing facilities:

  1. Lock the Room When You Leave It!
    That's especially true when the dressing rooms are not visible from the ice surface — but it ALSO applies to arenas where the dressing rooms ARE visible from the ice. During the game, all eyes are focused on the action on the ice, not the dressing room doors. Thieves have been known to enter dressing rooms in full view of the players and spectators — and get away with it. And, remember that arena dressing rooms typically share a shower/lavatory facility with an adjoining dressing room. So, be sure to deny thieves the "back-door" access to your dressing room by securing the shower room door as well.
  2. Don't Carry Large Amounts of Cash!
    A full wallet is an open invitation to a thief. Players should carry a driver's license (in case there's a roster check) and enough money to pay for their ice — period. Large ice payments, of course, are best handled by a check or money order, and it's always wise to make any payment BEFORE the game — rather than leave a room full of cash when a team takes the ice. And treat your credit cards the same way you would a large amount of cash — leave them at home.
  3. Don't Force Open the Doors!
    If you find yourself unable to enter the dressing room, seek out a rink employee or someone from MSE. Don't try to force the door open! Not only will your team be responsible for the cost of repairing the door (which isn't cheap), a broken door is an inviting opportunity for a thief later on.
  4. Return Your Keys!
    We know it's a hassle to leave your car/house keys when picking up a dressing room key — but there's a reason almost all arenas do it. Having extra dressing room keys leave the building is an obvious security breach and an invitation to trouble. Remember to always return your key as you leave the arena.

Following these simple procedures should help to keep the dressing rooms secure and minimize the risk of anyone becoming victimized by a thief.

MSEHOCKEY.COM — 23 YEARS OLD AND STILL SETTING RECORDS!

Now more than two decades old and faster and more functional than ever, the Michigan Sports Enterprises website continues to be "the" adult hockey online resource in Metro Detroit. Since it went live in April 1998, msehockey.com has logged more than 36 million total hits, including an all-time record of more than 800,000 in March 2019! MSE was the first adult hockey program in Michigan to provide its teams and players with online access to scores, standings, schedules, etc., and while the regular maintenance and updates aren't easy or inexpensive, msehockey.com has more than proven its worth to our teams over the years.

Remember, your team can become a part of our website for just $99 a year — that works out to about 27 cents a day and less than $2 a week. For that small expense, we'll link any team site to our "TEAM" page and give any one team sponsor a link to our "SPONSOR" page as well. If your team or your sponsor are interested in this great and inexpensive opportunity to get some added exposure, just drop us an e-mail at info@msehockey.com.
