The ETHL held its first ever Doubles tournament last Sunday at Schanks Sports Grill. Thanks to Pete Shuchuk, here were the tournament rules:

1) Top ranked player will team up with lowest ranked player. No. 2 ranked player will team up with #2 lowest ranked player, etc.

2) One player controls the Left Wing, Left Defence and Goalie. The other player controls the Right Wing and Right Defence. Both players can use the Center.

3) If the puck is on the left side, the left-side player controls the Center and when the puck is on the right side, the right-side player controls the Center. When a puck ends up with the Center, the player that controls the Center is the side the puck came from. For example, if the Left Winger or Left Defence gets the puck to the Center (or if the puck came from the left side via an opponent), the player on the left controls the Center shot. The same thing would apply coming from the right side. The other rule is that players can not change positions during a game.

The results of the ETHL Doubles Tournament held last Sunday:

Double Round-Robin:
Team W L T Pts GF GA SO
1) Matt Alden-Lance Mudryk 6 1 1 13 38 27 0
2) Thomas Hunter-Trent Wilson 5 3 0 10 33 28 1
3) Reggie Stefaniszyn-Will Anderson 4 3 1 9 43 29 0
4) Will Wong-Shane Wilson 3 4 1 7 21 29 1
5) Bill Rothery-Pete Shuchuk/Shawn Wilson 0 7 1 1 12 37 0

Playoffs:
Semi-finals (Best-of-3)
4) Will W.-Shane upset 1) Matt-Lance 2 games to 1
2) Thomas-Trent defeated 3) Reggie-Will A. 2 games to 1

Finals (Best-of-3)
2) Thomas-Trent defeated 4) Will W.-Shane 2 games to 0 (1 OT)

Congratulations to Thomas Hunter and Trent Wilson for winning the 2013
ETHL Doubles Championship! Clapping

Fun stuff!

Way to go guys!

Doubles is a great way to play table hockey. After our club dates
we sometimes play some doubles. We play five minute games
with no three second rule. Goals off the face off are allowed.

It is a great feeling to connect on a wing to center pass and score
when you are only controlling one of the two players. Or a dman
to dman pass. Of course having signals to let your team mate know
you are about to pass to them helps make those plays easier.

Another thing about doubles I like is that it forces me to play some
rods with a different hand then I normally use and stand behind the
game at a different angle. Another feature is that you now play as a
team... so if you let in a stinker then you
let the team down. Razz

Yes, Warren. It was a lot more fun than I expected. We didn't have to worry about communicating for passes because whatever side the puck was on, that player controlled both the winger AND center (see our rules above). There is strategy in matching up to an opponent directly across from you on the board, and playing in 1-16, 2-15, 3-14, etc. teams does even out the competition!!

Okay I glossed over your rules Embarassed

There still needs to be some communication if you guys pass
from defence to defence though. It is fun pass to try.

I like doing the kind of pairings you are talking about. In theory it
should even things out yet some guys just have better chemistry
now matter what their rankings are.

So you having a doubles tourney in Sept too? Very Happy
