Hyundai Terriers readying for new season

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League is poised to return to action this fall.

“It’s looking very good. It’s so nice to hear some positive reports,” said Corvyn Neufeld, president of Yorkton Terrier Wednesday, the day after the team’s Board of Directors met to begin planning in earnest for a return to play.

Tuesday the SJHL sent out a media release including a statement from provincial Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison stating things are moving forward to get back to normal, which includes SJHL hockey starting this fall.

“Hockey has always been a key part of our culture and economy in Saskatchewan communities and we look forward to working with the league to see the players back on the ice,” he stated.

The Board of Governors and the GM/Coaches of the SJHL teams will be meeting soon to set the schedule for the upcoming season of 58 games, with a start date of Sept. 24, noted the league release.

Neufeld said the Terriers are proceeding with the expectation of the league starting in the fall.

”We’ll have our normal fall camp the September long weekend,” he said, adding exhibition games will be scheduled too.

While noting “there’s no guarantee,” Neufeld said “it looks promising we’ll be able to have a full house, no restrictions of fans,” by the time the season kick-offs.

With that in mind season tickets will soon be available with an early bird price of $300 for adults (regularly $350).
