All 13 teams in the PJHL are preparing to return to the ice.
In announcing resumption of play, the league said the 2020-21 season will consist of a 44-game regular season schedule, with each team playing a single interlocking game against the opposing conference as well as two games at the 2021 PJHL Winter Classic Showcase scheduled for January at Minoru Arena in Richmond.
As well, the annual Prospects Game and All Star Game in partnership with the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League will take place, but dates have not been set yet.
PJHL commissioner Trevor Alto said the league has worked “extremely hard to get us in a position where we are able to make decisions that will allow us to return to competition.”
They are aiming to resume play by the end of September.
“Once we confirm all our facilities are available, we will then be able to provide a firm schedule,” Alto said.
Under COVID-19 guidelines, PJHL teams will play in cohort divisions consisting of a maximum of four teams rather than competing in a traditional two conference format.
The league has also instituted a roster deadline of Tuesday, September 15th, when all teams must be down to a maximum of 25 carded players.
