MJDHL Mission Statement

     The MJDHL, created in 2006 and formerly known as the OTDHL, exists for the sole purpose of providing a safe and enjoyable hockey playing experience for anyone 50 years old and older. The MJDHL welcomes those who wish to learn and experience the wonderful game of ice hockey for the first time as well as those who have played for many years.

Mark Janes in suit

      The playing atmosphere will always be appropriate for the age level of our skaters and all players will behave in a manner that is also appropriate for our ages.

     Friendships and camaraderie are the only goals that we really care about and both will always be the cornerstones of the MJDHL. The support, encouragement, and respect that are exhibited by every player for each other will always be above and beyond reproach.

     Respectfully submitted,

               The Commish, Mark Janes
