With the latest announcement from Chief Public Health Office (CPHO) regarding a possible return to class for Island schools on January 31st, Hockey PEI is hopeful that our membership will be back to on ice activities shortly thereafter. With this in mind, both Female and Minor Councils want to lay out the process for all league play once permitted by CPHO.

Female leagues will work with league coordinators to play out all previously scheduled games. Should time permit prior to Provincials, Coordinators will schedule additional games for league competition. One week prior to Provincials, currently scheduled for March 18, 2022, leagues will be tiered to determine placement for the Provincial Championships.

Male “AA” and “AAA” Leagues will continue with their scheduled games from the time Leagues are permitted to resume play. Coordinators will work with teams to ensure an equal number of games against one another, and overall total number of games are equal prior to the Provincial Playoffs/Championship weekend.

U9 hockey will work with the Hockey PEI U9 Director to ensure ice times are scheduled through to the end of the 2021 -2022 hockey season.

Male “A” Leagues will complete all previously scheduled games by February 13th, 2022. Leagues will then be tiered with games scheduled up to one week prior to the Provincials, currently scheduled for March 25, 2022.

**The Atlantic Hockey Branches are meeting this week to discuss Atlantic Championships. Following that meeting, we will be able to communicate further with members and answer more questions they may have on the 2021-22 season and Provincial Championships.

Should you have any questions, please contact your League Coordinator.
