The Kingston Leftovers Men’s Hockey League has been a dedicated supporter of KFASD since 2007.

April 5th – 9th, 2016

In 1998, local Oldtime Hockey organizer Terry Wright became a a cast-away from another Oldtimers team. So he phoned 15 hockey friends, guys that nobody wanted on their team. He formed the Kingston Leftover +50’s Hockey Team, hence the name Leftovers. This group was so pitiful on the ice that teams would play us just so they could practice their power play for 50 minutes. Needless to say we became very discouraged in our first season.

In 1999, Terry was able to secure some late night ice and advertised for players over 40 years of age. The response was encouraging and five teams were formed. to create a league . A schedule was prepared , A drafting of teams format was employed and continues to this day , we even have a club slogan: “Fun Along The Way.”

During its ninth year (2007), the Leftovers started the Kingston Oldtimers Memorial Hockey Tournament to remember local and area players who have died. Divisions are named in honour of each fallen player. Since 2007, all proceeds have been donated to the Kingston Foundation for Autism Spectrum Disorders.

In 2015, organizers John O’Connor and Bob Moses helped the Oldtimers raise $2,300 for the KFASD! Thank you for all your hard work!
