Haringey Huskies v Oxford Rising Stars

🏒 Strap yourselves in for Saturday night ice hockey at Alexandra Palace as league leaders Haringey Huskies take on Oxford Rising Stars in the NIHL.  See below for the latest ticket information.  

The 2023/2024 ice hockey season is approaching the business end for Haringey Huskies at Alexandra Palace.  The Huskies are looking to go all the way in the Division 2 South title race after narrowly missing out on top honours in last season.

High-octane action awaits at Ally Pally.  The iconic north London venue hosts Huskies home matches in the NIHL (see below for an introduction to the Division 2 South) which regularly draw sell-out crowds.  

The Huskies made an excellent start to the season and coming into the new year they took it up a notch.  Lee Valley Lions, Chelmsford Warriors and Streatham Blackhawks were hammered 10-2, 10-0 and 12-0 respectively at the Ally Pally.  Title rivals Peterborough Phantoms snapped the Huskies unbeaten run at the end of January, but the north Londoners bounced straight back with a 6-0 thumping of Solent Junior Devils last time out.

As at the end of January Huskies were top of the table on 22 points.  2 points clear of nearest rivals Peterborough Phantoms and 3 points ahead of third-placed Bristol Pitbulls.


Next up for the Huskies on home soil is the visit of Oxford Rising Stars on Saturday 2 March.  With Stars struggling at the foot of the table the hosts will start as hot favourites to register another win.

Can the Huskies take the spoils, or will Solent cause a big upset?  All roads lead to north London to find out.  Great family entertainment is guaranteed at Alexandra Palace as Haringey Huskies look to maintain their winning streak and stay top of the table.
