'Bread Line'
The 'Bread Line' was one of the most famous lines of his era, with the brothers Mac Colville (centre), Neil Colville (right-wing) and Alex Shibicky (left-wing). The line's nickname came from sportswriters who said the trio was the New York Rangers "bread and butter". At the time of their formation, in 1936, they were the youngest line in the National Hockey League. Mac Colville was 20, Neil Colville and Shibicky were both 22. They were also known as the 'Prairie Boys' because all three hailed from western Canada.

Bridge of Weir
Logo ©
Bridge of Weir, Renfrewshire, Scotland. Played in the Scottish National League. From the Montreal Daily Star of Wednesday 23rd October 1929 "All known records for an early start in actual play in hockey have been shattered, and not by a Canadian or American team. This honour goes without reserve to Scotland, according to a paragraph in the Glasgow News, which has just reached the National League headquarters. The game was played on October 4 in the famous Crossmyloof artificial ice rink and was a city league affair between the Glasgow Mohawks and Bridge of Weir. There is a flourishing city league in Glasgow which is arousing considerable hockey enthusiasm. Bridge of Weir won by 2-1 and apparently they have their defensive hockey over there as well as here. The Bridge of Weir team, victors of the occasion, are apparently somewhat of a family affair as there are three Muirheads on the team, two McLeods, and a Woodrow. Hockey is making considerable strides in Glasgow, and their enterprise in starting the actual competition so early has set up a record which will hardly be surpassed for some time to come."

British All-Star Teams

Selected at various times by coaches, captains, referees and reporters, these awards were made to the players contesting leagues regarded as the top playing level of the day. The All-Star teams were first selected for the 1935-36 season. No teams were selected in 1960-61, 1965-66, 1966-67 and 1972-73. Some seasons there were two equal leagues (e.g. English National League and Scottish National League) and in these cases All-Star A and B teams were picked for both leagues.
British Autumn Cup
Name given to the Autumn Cup competition between 1954 and 1960. See Autumn Cup.

"British Ice Hockey Hall of Fame, The"

A paperback book with 192 pages written by Martin C Harris. Published in December 2007 by Tempus Publishing. The British Ice Hockey Hall of Fame was created in 1948 by Ice Hockey World and continued until that journals' demise ten years later. After a lapse of nearly three decades the British Ice Hockey Writer's Association revived the Hall in 1986. It now has nearly one hundred members. This book is a collection of biographies, many never before seen in print, celebrating the achievements of these sporting personalities.
British Ice Hockey News
A four page weekly tabloid published in the UK from 1958 to 1960.  It was published as a successor to the Ice Hockey World and although it was similar in style, it had less pages. It ran for 53 issues and was edited by Basil Story and Roy Shepherd.
"British Ice Hockey : Players From The Golden Days"
A book published in 1997 by Yore Publications of Harefield, Middlesex. Written by Trevor Boyce, it contains 80 pages with black and white photos.
British Ice Hockey Statistical Guide
Editions were published in 1995, 1996 & 1997. The 1995 edition was compiled by Simon Potter, the 1996 edition was compiled by Caroline Potter & Simon Potter and the 1997 was compiled by Simon Potter. All editions were published in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

British League
Founded for the 1982-83 season, the top league in this version was Division One and was played in three sections (A, B & C) which were regionalised and although sections A and C teams did not meet, section B teams played all of the other teams in the league. Therefore, this version of the league had three section champions. This version of the league also had a Division Two and a Division Three.
See the British National League entry for winners of this league.

British National League

There have been five leagues with this title in the UK. The first league operated from 1954 to 1960, the second league operated for just the 1982-83 season, the third league was sponsored by the Whitbread Brewery (under their Heineken brand) and ran from 1983 to 1993, the fourth league operated for three seasons from 1993 to 1996 and the latest league has operated since the 1997-98 season. See separate entries for more information.
British National League 1954-60

Founded for the 1954-55 season, this version of the competition finished in 1959-60.
British National League 1982-83

For the 1982-83 season there was a British League - so should not strictly be included with the British National League - the top league in this version was Division One and was played in three sections (A, B & C) which were regionalised and although sections A and C teams did not meet, section B teams played all of the other teams in the league. Therefore, this version of the league had three section champions. This version of the league also had a Division Two and a Division Three.
British National League 1983-93

Founded for the 1983-84 season, this version of the competition included three divisions (Premier Division, Division One & Division Two) and finished in 1992-93. This league was sponsored by Heineken.
British National League 1993-96

Founded for the 1993-94, this version of the competition included two divisions (Premier Division & Division One) and finished in 1995-96. In the first season teams were permitted up to 4 imports, including one dual national but only three such players could ice at any one time. In the second season each team were permitted up to 5 imports, including 2 who held British passports (dual nationals) but only three such players could ice at any one time. Also, three British trained players had to be on the ice at all times. The player rules for the final year of this version of the British National League were affected by the Bosman ruling - the BIHA had already agreed that dual nationals from North America could ice as British provided they had played in the UK for three years and were therefore eligible to play for Great Britain. In addition, teams were permitted to register up to 3 players who required a work permit.
1993-94 : In the Premier Division teams played each other four times (two home and two away). In Division One an interlocking schedule saw teams play others in their region four times (two home and two away) and teams in the other region twice (one home and one away).
1994-96 : In both the Premier Division and Division One teams played each other four times (two home and two away).

The league had 28 teams in the 1993-94 season - 12 in the Premier Division and 16 in the regionalised Division One. The 1994-95 season started with 26 teams - 12 in the Premier Division and 14 in Division One but two clubs withdrew from Division One mid-season. The final season in this version saw 24 teams - 10 in the Premier Division and 14 in Division One.
British National League 1997-05
Logo © British National Ice Hockey League

The British National Ice Hockey League version of the British National League was founded for the 1997-98 season. Each team had to contain at least ten British born and trained players in their roster of 18 players. Each team had to ice at least three players, at all times, who were eligible for the Great Britain team. Players serving minor or major penalties were deemed to be 'on the ice' for the purposes of this rule. It was the team captain who was responsibility for bringing an infringement of the rule to the attention of the referee. 

This version of the British National League was set up as an nine-team league and expanded to ten teams from the 1999-00 season.
British Sledge Hockey Assosciation [web site]
Logo © British Sledge Hockey Association
The BSHA was founded in 1995. Sledge ice hockey is where players sit in a sledge that has two skate blades underneath them fastened to the frame of the sledge. Players use two hockey sticks to play the game. At the butt end of each stick are picks which enable the player to dig in to the ice to propel themselves across the ice surface. At the other end is the blade which the player uses to receive, pass and shoot the puck. The game is played under the same rules as regular ice hockey. It is not just a sport for disabled people as some able bodied people also play but not in the paralympic teams. There is another web site for the sport at http://www.sledgehockey.co.uk.
