FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cambridge, Ontario – Following Friday’s press release by Provincial Junior Hockey League Commissioner Terry Whiteside, the league and its member clubs now shift their attention to planning for a safe return to play throughout all PJHL conferences.
While the league and its clubs tirelessly prepare for the future, it is worth noting that some PJHL clubs have hit the ice in safe and modified forms in order to keep their players fresh through various player development sessions.
In addition, the PJHL has taken a proactive approach when it comes to regular season scheduling, playoff formats, and creation of sound return to play policies for the future. Coined the COVID Response Committee, this group has been diligently working in the background to ensure the PJHL is equipped with the competent information on proper methods to ensure a safe return for everyone.
Being chaired by the President of the Woodstock Navy Vets, Devon Young, the COVID Response Committee includes Jordan Zehr (Tavistock Braves), Doug Timmermans (Goderich Flyers), Mark Seguin (Lakeshore Canadiens), and Tyler Revoy (Campbellford Rebels).
“We’re continuously communicating with the PJHL Board of Directors and team Governors on safe and effective measures to get our league back on the ice,” said Devon Young. “We’re focusing a lot of our efforts on how the regular season and playoffs will be scheduled in such a tight timeframe, as well as ensuring we are providing everyone with a safe and sound plan to return to the rinks.”
As the clock ticks down on what has been a challenging year, the COVID Response Committee, PJHL Board of Directors, and team Governors will continue to work tirelessly towards the common goal of bringing junior hockey back to the sixty-three community arenas scattered across the vast landscape of Southern Ontario.
