MSE TO HOST 'LAST CHANCE' SUMMER TOURNEY JUNE 11-13!

Bummed about your team missing out on the MSE Spring Tournament? Or just looking for a repeat of last March's weekend of fun, intense, competitive hockey?

Here's a "Last Chance" to get in on some tournament action before the peak Summer vacation weeks arrive — the MSE "Last Chance" Adult Summer Tournament, coming to our Eastside arenas Friday through Sunday, June 11-13!

Teams from all five of our fall/winter arenas are invited to compete — Fraser, Mount Clemens, Trenton, Southgate and Taylor — and outstate and non-MSE teams, too. Once again, three skill levels are being offered, from beginner/novice to elite, and the cost is just $595 for a three-game guarantee plus a championship final game on Sunday for qualifying teams. In addition to an impressive team trophy and a permanent spot on the MSE Champions page on our website, special championship T-shirts will be awarded to all members of the winning squads.

All teams can access our easy and convenient online registration with Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express here. Copies of the brochure/registration form are also available at Fraser Hockeyland and can be downloaded off our homepage.

This should be another great event — a weekend of great hockey, at a great price, with a showcase trophy and big-time bragging rights to the victors. Sign up now! Any questions about the Tournament, just contact us at info@msehockey.com.

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.

For complete tournament results, visit our STANDINGS page. Congratulations to our five champions and five runners-up, and thanks to all 30 teams competing for the 2021 MSE Cup!

REMINDER: REGISTER WITH AAU IN 2020-21!

We'd like to remind all teams and individuals that MSE games and events are sanctioned this season by the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) rather than USA Hockey.

AAU is a non-profit, volunteer, multi-sport event organization dedicated exclusively to the promotion and development of amateur sports and physical fitness programs. Anyone planning on participating in any 2020-21 MSE league, school or event should register with AAU through the link on our homepage. Note that unless you are also participating in another program besides MSE, you will not need to register with USA Hockey in the coming season. To learn more about AAU, check them out at aausports.org.

Questions should be directed to info@msehockey.com.

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 — 22 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 35 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.
