Aces Over Brooklyn And the EPHL’s Fight for Hockey Relevance (Digital)


The Fist-Fllled Journey of Brooklyn’s Forgotten Pro Hockey Team

The Brooklyn Aces and Eastern Professional Hockey League’s tombstone reads 2008-2009.

That one full season in Brooklyn was a journey however that, for those who lived it, changed their lives forever. Headlined by an explosive combination of scoring and fighting, the EPHL, a designated Single-A professional hockey league, was as close to the type of representation of the sport you’d see in films the likes of Youngblood, Mystery Alaska and Slapshot.

Drawing national news coverage, the country watched as a team from Brooklyn led the league in wins and goals before it disappeared forever.

Written by the only beat writer covering the team, journalist Patrick Hickey Jr. resurrects the game recaps, interviews and insights that were lost on the internet for over a decade and sheds light on a magical team and league that gave us more blood, sweat and tears than you’d ever expect.
