Last year, the MLRH Cup went to Europe and we are determined to bring it back to the states. With our new $500 fee, any team can afford to play MLRH and they may help us win back the Cup from Europe.

Bill was alive and part of the Juke Box Generation. Music was awful when I was a kid but by 1955, things were starting to happen.

In 1972, the Chicago Blackhawks offered him one million dollars (7 million today) but the communists would not let him travel.
His quickness and athleticism earned him the nickname—ˇThe Acrobat."
Jiri Holochek...Best goalie ever?
Some pick the Russian Vladislav Tretiak but, head to head, Holichek never lost to him. In their 1976 3-1 upset of the Soviet in the Canada Cup, Trietiak stopped 11 of 14 shots, Holochek 40 of 41.
Jaroslav Holik and the goal that
brought down an empire...
This may be the toughest guy
who ever laced 'em up!
You have never heard of Gustav Bubnik shown as the baby faced whiz kid who scored the winning goal in the 1949 World Championships. I get Gordy Howe and I loved him from when I was a kid—but he never came back to play after five years in a
Soviet slave labor camp.
Over the past 18 months, I may have spent more time in Prague and the Czech Republic than in America. OIf you go for history, culture or hockey, this place has it all
and I am so looking forward to spending many more months there making a film. So click
and check it out. I'll meet ya there!
Another historic player you don't know but you may remember his son. Bobby Holik enjoyed a long career with the NJ Devils and finished up with the NY Rangers. His Father was a passionate anti-soviet agitator who scored the game winner in the 1972

Jerry Bruckheimer's hockey dream
comes true in Seattle
SEATTLE — An emotional day for the new
Seattle team owners with the awarding of the
NHL’s 32nd franchise to our city.

whose movies have been hailed for decades,
seemed a bit overcome by the moment.

But it will be a new format—made for TV, old style MLRH. Full contact, drop the gloves, roller hockey. The sport has more than enough
tournament series—what it lacks is excitement and a fan base!
The smartest thing Bill ever said is, "There's a reason fans don't
spend money to watch flag football." I get it that we may not be able to fill our rosters with the present crop of players. We may well have to include college and minor-league ice guys but I am committed to
go in that direction. More importantly, that is the only game, anyone
of substance will invest in.
At the moment, I am on hold with my film due to the Coronavirus shutdown of the film industry. I am guessing I will lose another six months before we begin production but MLRH will play again one day.
Keep skating everyone,
Many of you know that I am currently involved with a film. Regrettably, I could not pursue my dream of producing a Hollywood film and find the time to give MLRH the time it required. But, I have not been without my hockey fix. Fact is, you would be stunned to discover the number of actors,directors and producers who love the game. Many are still playing at an advanced age, others, like Jerry Bruckheimer buy teams. Just for fun, i'd like you to meet some of
the Hollywood hockey junkies...

It's going on two years since
MLRH has played a competitive
game but, one day we will
return. My time spent in the
film business has been invaluable—new contacts with film and TV people and, at some point (My guess is within a year), MLRH will play again.
