It's a scrappy little league.. The videos are fun - if not a bit - ODD.

i watch the Australian ice hockey,because our minor team down here in louisiana has two players that are playing in the league this season.It is  semi-professional league. Typically this means that players are not paid to play in the AIHL, but receive other benefits such as the use of a car, accommodation, flights/travel within Australia, and other benefits. Often these benefits are supplied or funded by sponsors and vary from team to team.


The  games are shorter than typical hockey games, consisting of two 15-minute periods and a 20 minute 3rd, instead of three 20-minute periods that are usually played under normal North American and IIHF hockey regulations.

Haven't replied in years but ya, I played down there for a season when I was backpacking. Actually played against/with a couple x world junior players and fridge nhl guys who packed it in and were just playing for fun.
Very very raw and hard to sell down there but it exists.
There was one kid on our team who was just a natural athlete. Top 3 best hands I've ever seen on ice. If he had been born in a hockey playing nation he might have had a legit shot.
