Senior and Junior hockey Leagues met with Hockey Alberta on February 8 to review the recent updates from the Government of Alberta. During this meeting, the Leagues and Hockey Alberta unanimously decided to conclude all regular season league play for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.
The NWJHL including all 6 teams, though saddened by this news, remains focused and will wait for the AHS restrictions to be lifted in order to get back to on-ice development and exhibition games to put a proper end to a dismal season.
The NWJHL would like to express its appreciation to all the teams for hanging in there and remaining positive throughout all this.
It's been a long time in the making, but the Alberta teams in the NWJHL will start exhibition play on October 10th. Sexsmith Vipers will be playing a 5 game series against the Grande Prairie JDA Kings and the Fairview Flyers will play a 5 game series with the North Peace Navigators. Dawson Creek Jr Canucks and the Fort St John Huskies will begin an exhibition series as well in the coming days.
Please check in with each team's social media page or website regarding what will be allowed for spectators and other Covid-19 protocols.
