About Us

UHS is the culmination of years of fantasy hockey experience.  It is a centrally driven program from our hockeysim.ca domain and was designed to pick up where other simulators have left off.  It began with a crude set of web links back in 2004 and has evolved to what you see today.

While the majority of UHS was hand-developed by myself, the credit does not lie with me alone.  Anyone that has ever made any post in the Technical Issues forum or made suggestions or comments on how to improve UHS has played a crucial role in ensuring UHS is the most realistic hockey simulator around.

I would like to extend my thanks to any league that has run UHS during beta and specifically thank the TJHL for their patience as they are the original (and current) testbed for UHS in all its incarnations.  Specifically, Jon Lau has put in tremendous work and single-handedly re-developed the retirement and re-rate logic and built an Instant Messenger.
