Chad "Captain Canada" Goble #13

Chad is a well rounded hockey player, in that he's kind of round in most dimensions. That doesn't stop him from being the current TSHA top player, something that is nowhere near as impressive as it might first sound. When the bar is as low as it is for the TSHA, being the top is more a matter of being not quite the bottom.

Anyway, games are often determined by whether or not Chad is determined to win. And he hates losing.

Chad is in Tokyo because it is the furthest he could get away from Edmonton.

Chris "Smoochi" Colucci #8

Chris has burst on to the scene as one of the new young power wingers who are taking the TSHA by storm. Fast like the flash and tenacious in the corners, Chris can be relied upon to terrorize opposing defenses with his lightening quick feet, awesome stick handling and accurate wrist shot. His youth and energy make him welcome on any TSHA team. However this relative youth does make him a "kohai" and as such the "whipping boy" of the usual cadre of fat slow older TSHA members who always make sure to make him do all the miscellaneous "junior stuff" like ordering the beers after hockey. Chris is good humored about it, knowing that he will just kick their asses for it in the corners in the next practice.

Chris "Jonesy" Jones #26

Solid guy and solid goalie with a stand up style, Chris spent the 2009 season minding the Toga's net but moves into 2010 in free agency. Which fortunate team will pick up Jonesy for an open position between the pipes?

Colin "30%" Kozik #76

You'd think a guy who weighs about 42 Kg and wears pajama pants to play hockey wouldn't be a scoring threat, but you'd be wrong. Colin is one of the TSHA's all time top scorers, both on the regular Sunday afternoons, and in tournament play.

Christian Butzek #41

Christian is the only TSHAer who is actually physically fit. An actual bona fide marathon runner who brings tons of energy and industry to each and every outing whether it being Sunday practice or tournament play.

All this and he can actually stick handle, shoot and defend. We really need more like him. And fast, before the MHL kick our collective TSHA asses again.

Dan Ferreira #16

Dan is an old time Montreal style player with a throw the body around style that confounds attackers of all stripes.

His all over the place defensive zone style is as distinctive as it is hard to get by. He can be found stopping balls on his knees, hips, ass, stomach, elbows and lips...only to be up a second later rushing the offensive zone with his typical ear to ear smile on his face.

Dave Gutteridge #1, El Presidente of the TSHA

Dave was one of the original founding members of the TSHA, and somehow was quickly roped into running the web site, building nets, carrying the equipment, maintaining the mailing list, and basically keeping the TSHA going for many years. In this day and age, he who holds the web site and mailing list holds the power, so Dave decided most of the rules, and keeps everyone informed of what's going on.

He still does most of those things, though in recent years the TSHA has expanded and others have started participating more in doing the various things that make the TSHA happen. On the one hand it's good to have more support now. On the other hand, Dave misses the Stalin-esque control he used to enjoy.

When the TSHA first started, Dave's playing ability could only be described as "complete incompetence".

After five years or so, Dave advanced to "almost capable". And now has achieved "can often be relied upon to not fail too badly".

Eric "Slider" Chho #33

The TSHA's main goalie, at home and away, Eric has quickly established himself as a game changer. 2009 Korea tournament goalie and 2009 League MVP and Best Goalie, Eric continues to rack up the awards along with the saves.

Like most goalies, Eric has his otaki side and from experience we know it's better to just get him between the pipes and get the on with it than to engage in a detailed description of the merits of one protective glide pad type over another...

Fun to play with, and a wall behind the defense, Eric is always welcome on any team.
