10,000 games of hockey…well, maybe not quite that many

While driving home from my game one night last week, I got to thinking about how many games of hockey I’ve actually played, organized or pickup.   Here’s what I came up with:

  • 11 years of church house league at approximately 20 games per year = 220 games
  • 4 years of high school hockey at approximately 30 games per year = 120 games
  • 4 years of rec hockey at university at approximately 10 games per year = 40 games
  • 9 years of Thursday night pickup in Waterloo for 25 weeks = 225 games
  • 8 years of the Grand River Industrial league in Kitchener at approximately 20 games per year = 160 games
  • 15 years of the Woolwhich Oldtimers league at approximately 50 games per year = 750 games
  • 7 summers of pickup once a week for 15 weeks = 105 games
  • 3 summers of pickupu twice a week for 15 weeks = 90 games
  • 3 years of the Waterloo Hi Tech League at approximately 15 games per year = 45 games
  • tournaments during the last 15 years at approximately 10 games per year = 150 games
  • Grand Total = 1905 games

I wonder what my my team’s won-loss record was in this grand mass of games?  Next up, calculating how many hours I’ve spent on neighbourhood rinks, backyard rinks and the odd flooded field or frozen canal.

    1900 is pretty impressive Rich. I notice that you didn’t calculate in your include Peterborough Minor Hockey Association. Surely someone with purple pants spent time in the PMHA!
