DECEMBER 23, 2017
The last event of 2017 for the Lunenburg Tabletop Hockey League was history making. The inaugural All Star Game & Skills Competition was a success providing fun entertainment and high quality table hockey action. The entire league participated in six events throughout the night for the Skills Competition.

Players faced off in the One-timer Competition where they had ten shots to score as many one-timers. The right win player was not allowed to cross the blue line when making passes. In the end it was Gwennie Weaver who won the contest by scoring four shots. In the second event it was Shane Weaver winning the Obstacle Course Relay with the fastest time. Craig Tanner won with the fastest time in the Around the Clock Challenge where you had to pass the puck around the board to all of your players without missing. Shane Weaver would get the fastest time in the Goalie Passing Challenge where the object was to pass the puck with your goalie to all five of your players. Craig Tanner won the Shootout Competition where each player got five shots on net against a human controlled goalie. In the final event it would be Cody Nodding winning the Defensive Puck Dump Contest with 250 points. The object was to dump the puck with your left defenceman behind the net and land on the scoring grid to earn points. It was a fun event and it was great to see everyone test their skills using maneuvers that are crucial in real table hockey matches.

In the main event the top four players in the league teamed up for the All Star Game. #1 All Star Craig Tanner and #4 Ben Hebb faced off against #2 Shane Weaver and #3 Cody Nodding in a best two out of three game series. A coin toss for each team determined the participants for the first period. Ben Hebb struck first blood on Shane Weaver but after the first period it was Shane ahead 3-1. In the second period, Cody Nodding was able to hold off Craig Tanner in a scoreless period as they took the series lead 1-0.

In game two, Cody Nodding and Ben Hebb faced off and Cody put his team in the lead 3-0 after the first period. In the second period, Craig Tanner mounted a comeback with three unanswered goals on Shane Weaver to make it 4-3 and raise the intensity. With only 28 seconds remaining, Shane was able to extend the lead by two with a pass to center which lead to Team All Stars B taking victory. Shane Weaver and Cody Nodding would become the first ever winners of the All Star Game with a 2-0 series win and create more history for the Lunenburg Tabletop Hockey League.

The LTHL would like to thank everyone that participated and helped out with the event. The league enters holiday break and will resume in the new year with week ten of the regular season on January 9th, 2018. Thank you for another great year!
2017 COMES TO A CLOSE
DECEMBER 17, 2017

Craig also takes a lead in the race for the league's scoring and hat trick titles. His teammate Roger Heisler was unavailable to play this week but will be making his return for week nine.

Unfortunately, the Toronto Maple Leafs were unable to ice a team this week and therefore were forced to forfeit all of the week's games. Due to this, only four games were played this week. Toronto's unfortunate situation deals them a major blow. The Leafs fall to third place in the standings and now trail the league leading Chicago Black Hawks by ten points. Toronto captain Shane Weaver also falls back in the scoring and hat trick title races. It's an unfortunate road bump considering the Leaf's were having their best season in league history. The Leafs will be looking to get back on track during week nine.

Ben Hebb was able to win his second crown of the season in King of the Hill after eliminating the season leader, Craig Tanner with a stunning goal. Ben looks to keep up the momentum when he will step into the #1 spot in week nine.
