CPJHL provides update on 2020-21 hockey season

by Matt Mackinder

A statement from the Canadian Premier Junior Hockey League:

The Canadian Premier Junior Hockey League, like many leagues in Canada, has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and will have a different look for this 2020-21 hockey season. 

The CPJHL has been monitoring the pandemic between the Ontario and Quebec provinces regarding the rules and regulations of returning to play hockey in a scheduled league environment. 

The ability for the Quebec teams and Ontario teams to play against each other will not be permitted by provincial governments. Until the rules of play for the crossover of the Ontario and Quebec teams is permitted once again, our Quebec teams will form their own schedule to play against each other in order to have a season for their recruited players. The return next season to the CPJHL will be welcomed by all.

Ontario teams in the CPJHL will be following a comprehensive COVID-19 operational plan for procedures to follow to ensure a safe return to play environment. Our return to play will follow provincial and municipal governing bodies in accordance to Public Health Agency of Canada & Public Health Ontario. 

The season schedule will be announced once the approval from teams facilities and Ontario Public Health has been met.

Thank you!

CPJHL Administration
