Around the G: November Preview
All month long
Entering its second year, the Ahead of the Game campaign will see GTHL teams sell Movember themed Babsocks to raise money for both their team and mental fitness programming in the GTHL. The team that sells the most socks will win a practice with Leafs Head Coach Mike Babcock. Midget-age players, who are also encouraged to participate in Ahead of the Game, have the opportunity to win additional prizing by posting photos of their growing facial hair with the hashtag #GTHLMovember.

Named after the former member of the Mississauga Reps, the Shanahan (as in Brendon) International will host “AAA” teams from Minor Atom to Minor Bantam across three different rinks. The event will see teams from around Canada and the United States compete over three days. Click here for a full schedule.
November 15 marks three important GTHL deadlines: the final date a club may release a player, final date to submit team affiliation forms, and the final date to sign or register an import player.
