League Games into March and April

Posted by Andre Leduc at Jan 31, 2022 2:55PM PST ( 0 Comments )

The Nickel District League had previously advised using unscheduled League games as follows:
Because of the uncertainties this season, teams can continue to try and make up games through March, should they desire to do this, regardless of the (early) playoff tournament, to give themselves competition taking them to TOCs.

The League is now aware that teams may desire to continue making up League games into April as well, if their local arenas remain open.
Having said that, the League is supportive of this continued hockey action, by using unscheduled League games missed because of Covid.
