PJHL Set To Drop The Puck December 1
Junior C hockey is set to drop the puck December 1 after the PJHL, the Provincial Junior Hockey League, announced their return-to-play plan.
The province wide league announced a shortened season, of at least 24-games per team, down from the standard 40, heading into playoffs and the Schmalz Cup.
“Collectively, our members have worked diligently to be prepared for a safe return to competition when possible. By setting a targeted start date, we are supporting our players, teams, and communities to effectively plan to resume the game,” ,” said PJHL chairperson Sandra Neubauer in a league news release.
Locally, the Dresden Jr. Kings, Wallaceburg Thunderhawks, Blenheim Blades, and Wheatley Sharks will be impacted by the start up date.
Last season, the Mooretown Flags and Lakeshore Canadiens were duelling it out in the PJHL Stobbs Division final as COVID-19 struck, cancelling the season.
