Sasky gave you AIHL 101 yesterday, and we hope you’ve used the helpful flowchart to pick a team. Now you’ve done that you need to be able to follow them. Thankfully the league is very social media savvy and they love a good livestream so you can catch live games, tweets, interviews, memes and even replays. We put all the info you need below, so let’s get started.

First up we’ve curated a few twitter lists so you can follow the players and staff from your favorite team or the entire league – check them out here and of course we’ll be sharing up to the minute info on our Twitter and Facebook feeds.

Australian Ice Hockey League
Twitter: AIHL
Facebook: theAIHL
Youtube: AIHL on YouTube

Why Follow? You follow the NHL accounts don’t you? Same reasons, less Backstreet Boys references.

Canberra Brave
Www: (We believe there is a new site coming soon)
Twitter: CBRBrave
Facebook: cbrbrave
Youtube: Nah.. they’ve got Vimeo
Livestream: YES! Games from the Brave Cave are livestreamed and awesome –
Why Follow? They’ve been described as Mouthy and Antagonistic, I like to think of it as witty banter with a side of chirping. They do post raw meat on Facebook, so if you’re vegetarian you may want to give that a miss. PS they have an Instagram account too!

Melbourne Ice
Twitter: themelbourneice
Facebook: MelbourneIce
Youtube: Melbourne Ice
Livestream: YES! by ATC Productions
Why Follow? The Melbourne Ice are nice. Good player content on their YouTube page and the game tweets are tight.

Melbourne Mustangs
Twitter: mustangs_hockey
Facebook: mustangsicehockey
Youtube: MelbourneMustangs
Livestream: YES! by ATC Productions
Why Follow? The undisputed kings and queens of AIHL social media, they are punny, I really meme that. They speak the language of the people which includes making hockey players attempt to play hockey on the beach. If you want content, the Mustangs will give you content. Theye even have a snapchat (mustangs_hockey) and Instagram

Newcastle North Stars
Twitter: newnorthstars
Facebook: newcastlenorthstars
Youtube: NorthStarsOfficial
Livestream: YES! they are trialing new livestream options so we will keep you updated.

Sydney Bears

Livestream: Not yet!
Why Follow? Eloquent bear is eloquent – Give Adrian Esposito the mic and let him go. Not often you see a player with the ease and charm in front of the camera that Esposito displays. #87 on the ice #1 in our hearts!

Sydney Icedogs
Twitter: sydneyicedogs
Facebook: sydneyicedogs
Youtube: IceDogsTV
Livestream: We’ll keep you updated.
Why Follow? You like a goalie that is gonna make the highlight reel every week? Well we’re pretty sure Matt Grogan is gonna be that guy. Plus they have a bulldog as a mascot and use cheesy western music in their teaser videos – What’s not to love?
