The Winnipeg High School Hockey League has announced that the 2020-21 season has officially been cancelled. In a release, the league said it looks forward to seeing players and coaches back for the 2021-22 season.
While hockey is on pause across the province because of 'Code Red' restrictions, Winnipeg's announcement doesn't appear to have an impact on the Westman High School Hockey League.
Jason Alf, co-president of the league provides an update.
"We don't play them, there were no provincials this year, and there weren't any tournaments scheduled," said Alf. "This is a decision that they have made that has no barring on our league."
'Code Red' at this point is set to come to an end after 11:59:59 p.m. on Thursday. The province has yet to announce if restrictions will extend or if there will be any changes.
The final day of the season is scheduled for February 28 while the Clippers' final game is one day prior at Credit Union Place. Alf had this to say on when it may be too late to play a season.
"It's going to depend on when we get the okay to play and how long communities will be able to keep their ice," ended Alf. "We may also alter the number of games. With that said, we're not in a panic mode to create a bunch of scenarios until we have a better idea of what's going on."
