Rewind Hockey League

Welcome to the RHL Website

The purpose of the Rewind Hockey League (RHL) is to replay NHL hockey seasons using the Strat-O-Matic computer hockey game, starting with the 1974-75 season. The RHL will attempt to maintain a certain amount of the integrity of the actual franchise rosters through those years, while at the same time allow owners the flexibility to manipulate their team through trades and yearly free agent drafts. The RHL is designed for owners who may be fans of a single club, and want to experience both the high and low points that their favorite team went through in the past. For the league's inaugural season, each owner selected a team and received the most prevalent players on that team for the 1974-75 season. They will automatically receive all future rookies (non computer-only) for their teams. Four more teams have joined the RHL for the 1979-80 season.
