St. Lawrence Table Hockey Association

The Awesomest Table Hockey League Ever

TEAMS A - M

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ANAHEIM DUCKS

Coleco Tournament Victories: 92, 291, 292, 313

Team Record as of #322: 231-187-63

Anaheim joined the league in Tournament #60 (April 23, 2000) as the second half of the six team, two-part expansion.  They wore custom made home and away alternate uniforms from the late 1990's since they joined the league, as these are the best looking uniforms the Ducks have ever had. They changed to the current uniforms for tournament #164, and really dont look bad at all, the alternate uniform however.......ahahahahahahahaha. Anaheim has dropped Mighty from their name and is now just "the Anaheim Ducks". The current uniforms are now in use.  The Anaheim franchise shares the pennant drought record of 199 with Boston.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ATLANTA THRASHERS

Coleco Tournament Victories:  139, 146

Team Record as of #322: 169-237-57

Atlanta joined the league in Tournament #45 (Oct. 23, 1999) as the Atlanta Flames.  As the Flames, they were a terrible team, sporting a record of 5-14-3 from Tournaments #45 to #61.  By #62 (May 20, 2000), the team's name changed to the Thrashers; both to modernize and, because there was already a Flames franchise in Calgary.  The Thrashers have won two tournaments.  They wear custom made home, away and alternate uniforms.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 BOSTON BRUINS

Coleco Tournament Victories:  3, 6, 24, 32, 52, 53, 94, 193

Team Record as of #322: 218-252-80

The Bruins are one of the original 12 teams.  Like all of the original teams, they began as metal Monroe brand players.  By Tournament #14, the Munroe players were replaced by black Coleco players.  Over the years they have worn gold 70's jerseys, black 80's jerseys, 90's-00's home and away, and currently wear RBK uniforms in home, away and alternate colours.  The Bruins were the first team to repeat championship wins, and are a favourite of Tim.  The Bruins share the pennant drought record of 199 with Anaheim.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BUFFALO SABRES

Coleco Tournament Victories:  107, 251, 260, 298

Team Record as of #322: 162-230-63

Buffalo expanded into the league in Tournament # 59 (April 9, 2000).  They wore custom made black uniforms and the Coleco 1970's blue uniforms as a second.  These were eventually replaced by custom white home and red alternate away uniforms.  The red was then replaced once again by black. Confused? They then used all 3 (white, black and red). Buffalo now wears the new Buff-a-slug uniform and a vintage white alternate.  Derek led the Sabres to their first tournament win, then Noel won with them 8 years later after buying a Sabres jersey at a Boxing Day sale and wearing it to the tourny that night.

 


 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CALIFORNIA GOLDEN SEALS

Coleco Tournament Victories:  California:  69, 74, 85, 150
                                                                 Oakland:  41                                                 

 Team Record as of #322:      California:  157-214-58

                                                            Oakland:  21-16-14

Originally part of the first twelve teams, the Oakland Seals became the California Seals in Tournament #54 as the magic of laser jet copies turned the last of the Monroe players into Eagle players glued onto plastic bases.  In #103, these players were replaced by the custom made California Golden Seals.  The Seals are popular to rookie players due to their relative obscurity as a team.  "Who are they?"  "When did they have a team?!?"  The Seals are a favourite of Greg, everyone else in the league hates them. Like Florida, since Greg has gone, it was decided to relocate the Seals...to Dallas. As the Stars they only needed to change 2 letters in their name, and the team colours are the same. The SEALS re-joined the league for round 2 of tournament #239. They continue to be a novelty, but were adopted by two long serving members before they both left the league.  Neither Erin or Josh could take the Seals into the Finals.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CALGARY FLAMES

Coleco Tournament Victories:  15, 46, 50, 115, 116, 180, 184, 187, 282, 283, 284

Team Record as of #322: 239-251-68

The Flames expanded into the league with seven other teams in Tournament #14.  They won their very next tournament and eventually, four more.  The Flames wore 1980's Coleco uniforms until they were replaced with custom made home white and away black uniforms. They now also wear the best selling red jersey.  The Flames sported one fan-favourite, "Power-Stick", named because his stick was held together with lots of masking tape.  They presently have one of the few "specialty" custom players, a Jarome Iginla knock-off.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CAROLINA HURRICANES

Coleco Tournament Victories:  83, 124, 183, 199, 228, 233, 237, 276, 278, 279

Team Record as of #322: 211-218-56

Carolina joined the league in Tournament #59 (April 9, 2000) with Washington and Buffalo as the first half of an expansion which would see six new teams enter the league.  They wear custom made home, away and alternate uniforms.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS

Coleco Tournament Victories:  35, 45, 62, 91, 99, 108, 144, 171, 227, 264

Team Record as of #322: 251-281-81

The Blackhawks are one of the original twelve teams.  They did not convert from Monroe to Coleco style players until the tournaments of the late 40's or early 50's when they replaced the white "Chicago" uniform with the 1970's red Coleco style.  They currently wear both home and away custom replica uniforms and also have a black alternate jersey.  Chicago is a favourite team of Tim.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COLORADO AVALANCHE

Coleco Tournament Victories:  Avalanche:  127, 137, 161, 197, 270, 271, 295

                                                                 Rockies: none

Team Record as of #322:   Avalanche: 222-205-37

                                                        Rockies:  14-37-19

Colorado joined the league as the Colorado Rockies in Tournament #52.  Over fifty tournaments, the Rockies managed a terrible record of 14-37-19 with no tournament wins.  When the league contracted from 34 teams to 32 teams for tournament #103 (Oct. 20, 2001), the Rockies merged with Tampa Bay to become the Avalanche.  The Avalanche proved a more successful team, posting a better record and winning two 10 day Lindsay tournaments.  Colorado frequently makes the Playoffs and Finals, but usually under the guidance of less experienced players.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS

Coleco Tournament Victories:  129, 133, 140, 155, 156, 158, 169, 176, 177, 178, 181, 188, 191, 192, 202, 205, 206, 207, 209, 210, 240, 306

Team Record as of #322: 353-151-47

Columbus expanded into the league in Tournament #91 (June 9, 2001).  They are the cousin team to the now defunct Hamilton Tigers, who folded after seven short tournaments (#93-#100).  Columbus was the quickest team to reach 100 wins (#91-#150), then 200 wins (#150-#197), and may have the best goalie in the league (Marc Denis). Columbus is 1 of only 3 franchises to win 3 tournaments in a row -- and they've done it twice!.  They wear custom made home, away and inaugural alternate uniforms.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DALLAS STARS

Coleco Tournament Victories: none

Team Record as of #322: 89-129-33

The Dallas Stars were relocated from California for tournament #176. The Seals were a favourite of Greg, everyone else in the league hated them. Like Florida, since Greg has gone, it was decided to relocate the Seals. As the Stars, they only needed to change 2 letters in their name, and the team colours are the same. Dallas should provide more realistic match-ups and rivalries in the league. They wear custom made home, away and (Scotts favorite) alternate uniforms.

 

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 DETROIT RED WINGS

Coleco Tournament Victories:  30, 31, 93, 125, 186, 234, 244, 255

Team Record as of #322: 223-248-67

Detroit is an "original twelve" team.  Their original white Monroe style uniform was replaced by the 1970's red Coleco uniform in Tournament #28.  This must have had an impact, as they went on to win #30 and #31.  Detroit currently wears custom made home, away and alternate retro uniforms.  They have won 5 tournaments with Noel, 1 with Scott and 2 with Shawn.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDMONTON OILERS

Coleco Tournament Victories:  19, 22, 23, 34, 51, 56, 59, 73, 75, 76, 78, 80, 81, 84, 87, 90, 96, 98, 102, 109, 110, 112, 113, 119, 120, 128, 131, 159, 160, 163, 166, 168, 195, 201, 213, 214, 219, 236, 238, 239, 242, 247, 249, 250, 252, 253, 265, 269, 277, 285, 290, 303, 310

 Team Record as of #322: 512-174-77

Edmonton expanded alone into the league in Tournament #13.  The number was lucky for them, as they have proven themselves to be the most successful franchise in the league, notching 53 tournament victories -- all with Noel.  They joined the league as a very poor team, having only two actual Oilers uniforms, the rest of the team being made up of odds and ends of extra players, and hand-drawn stickers.  Eventually trades were made for new uniforms.  The Oilers currently wear a custom made modern white home, away blue, and a dark alternate jersey.  They also wear the retro 80's uniform often.  The Oilers have been the only team to have a players name and number on a uniform... GRETZKY 99. Noel owns Edmonton for life.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FLORIDA PANTHERS

Coleco Tournament Victories:  79, 97, 103, 117, 118, 138, 158

Team Record as of #322: 126-205-59

Florida joined the league in Tournament #70 (July 9, 2000) as the first half of two teams selected for expansion.  They wear custom made home and away uniforms and introduced a red RBK uniform for tournament #322. Florida has won six tournaments, are the only team to have won a best of seven finals series in a sweep (Derek vs Noel (Minnesota), and were the first team to have consecutive tournament wins with two different players. Florida is Greg's favorite team, everyone else hates them, so when he moved away, Florida folded. After a 60 tournament absence, the Florida Panthers have rejoined the league. 


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hartford Whalers

Coleco Tournament Victories:  27, 111, 246, 297

Team Record as of #322: 251-274-77

Hartford was part of the Tournament #14 expansion.  Originally wearing 1980's green Coleco uniforms, Hartford now wears the 1996 version in both home and away plus an alternate retro green uniform.  They are a popular team, but are a bit "flukey" when it comes to winning tournaments.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LOS ANGELES KINGS

Coleco Tournament Victories:  2, 11, 28, 43, 66, 77, 143, 289

Team Record as of #322: 208-226-74

An "original twelve" team, the Kings had their Monroe uniforms replaced by 1970's Coleco players in #45.  The metal players boasted one fan favourite, "Rustmanev", the rustiest player in the league.  The Kings wore the ugly purple and yellow uniforms for a while, including a super-ugly yellow custom made home jersey.  They have since been replaced by the modern style Kings uniforms.  The Kings have won seven tournaments and are a favourite of Tim.

 


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MINNESOTA WILD

Coleco Tournament Victories:   Wild:  147, 148, 153, 172, 173, 185, 200, 216, 217, 220, 224,  

                                                             231, 243, 254, 267, 272, 273, 274, 275, 280, 300, 301

                                                   North Stars: 10, 100, 104, 105, 106

Team Record as of #322:          Wild: (#141 - current)   278-83-17

                                                  North Stars: (#1 - 140) 115-80-43                                             

The Wild originated as the Minnesota North Stars (Tournaments #1-#140).  The North Stars won Tournament #10, then went winless for 90 tournaments.  Due to their unsuccessful play, and despite being chosen by Noel almost every tournament, by #98 it was stated that unless the North Stars won a tournament by the time #100 rolled around, the would be renamed the Wild.  Miraculously, the threat worked and they won #100.  The North Stars went on to win three tournaments in a row, becoming the first team ever to do so.  Over their span, the North Stars wore six different uniforms:  Monroe, 1970's Coleco, 1980's Coleco, custom made 1980's home, custom 1993 "Stars" home, and custom 1993 "Stars" away.  When the NHL's Wild made the playoffs in 2003 for the first time, it was decided to replace the table hockey Stars with the Wild in #141 (Mar. 7, 2003).  The Wild wear custom made home, away and alternate jerseys and have since won two consecutive tournaments with Noel thrice.  The Minnesota franchise has won all three centennial tournaments.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MONTREAL CANADIENS

 Coleco Tournament Victories:  21, 49, 122, 164, 241, 248, 307

Team Record as of #322: 222-262-77

An "original twelve" team, the Canadiens had their Monroe uniform replaced as early as Tournament #3.  These table hockey Canadiens do not compare with their NHL counterparts however, holding a sub-.500 record and recording only six tournament victories.  They currently wear custom made home, away and alternate uniforms. Montreal was the last team in the league to replace it's original Coleco uniform with custom made ones - and how beautiful they are!
