During the early days of RinkWriter (2001), most arenas did not have access to the Internet, and cell phones were almost unheard of.  Rink-side paper scoresheets were the only option. 

My first significant experience with scorekeeping occured when I was the assistant boys hockey coach at St. Cloud Tech.  Early in the 1985-86 season, I had to call the game results to the St. Cloud Times using a pay phone at Parade Ice Garden. It wasn't always easy to decipher the information from the pink carbon copy. 

I will keep this short, but I could write a book regarding the circumstances, and people I have had the privilege to meet and to know during the past 40 years.  I am not planning to write that book...  :-)

Thank your local scorekeepers.  RinkWriter Scoresheets are created by your local scorekeeper...

I'd like to thank every scorekeeper that I have ever had the opportunity to work with.

Although the 2023-24 scoreboard will not be posted here, RinkWriter® scorekeepers may continue to use the software as a scorekeeping tool, and they may post their scoresheets to a website of their choice.

Scorekeepers may continue to email their scoresheets to the media and/or they may post their scoresheets to social media.

Today's technology allows for watching live video of games, and fans may now follow live game stats posted on line.

Every arena has its own unique set of scorekeepers and circumstances. You are only limited by your imagination.

I apologize for discontinuing the scoreboard, but as a 78 year old person needing a knee replacement... or two... the time has come to step aside for newer technologies.

 This hasn't been an easy decision because since January 1, 2023, 19,000 persons have visited this website. This RinkWriter website was down for almost a month because the server hosting this site had crashed on November 15th.
