This announcement was released today by Provincial Junior Hockey League Commissioner Terry Whiteside:
The Provincial Junior Hockey League will follow the provincial mandate and suspend play from January 5 through to January 27. We are very hopeful that we will be able to resume play soon after the 27th. Plans and schedules are being reviewed and amended as required to ensure we are able to complete our season and compete for the Schmalz Cup.
Our number one concern is the mental and physical health of our players, coaches, staff and fans. All of us want to be able to have a safe return to hockey. As the COVID situation continues to evolve we will be monitoring and preparing ourselves to be ready to return to the game.
As the largest Junior Hockey League in the world, the PJHL takes its responsibility very seriously to ensure the safety of all participants and we will continue to work with our governing bodies, local health units and facilities to provide the safest environment possible. Thank you to everyone involved with the PJHL, players, staff, officials, volunteers and fans, for your continued support.
