The Alberta Junior Hockey League is intending on returning to game action when they are given the green light.
The league’s Board of Governors met on Friday to discuss a Return to Play Plan, but with existing provincial restrictions in place for several weeks the League is unable to establish a timeline for return until January, the AJHL said in a release.
“Our priority is to exhaust all options in order to have some form of a season and do everything we can do to benefit our athletes, teams, and league through development and game play,” said AJHL Commissioner Ryan Bartoshyk.
“We will continue to lean on the valuable relationships built over the last nine months in order to determine a pathway to first safely return to our communities and facilities and then to competition.”
The AJHL continues to work with its Chief Medical Officer, Alberta Health Services and the Government of Alberta on an updated Return to Play Plan necessary to protect players, officials, staff and fans.
The Bonnyville Pontiacs held a 2-2 record in the first four games of regular season play until the season was put on pause in late November.
