Soo Greyhounds season delayed as The Ontario Hockey League has cancels February Start Date


The Soo Greyhounds will need to keep their Game Jerseys on the hangers for a little while longer.

Today, the OHL announced that  the season will not start on February 4th as original scheduled earlier this year. Players were scheduled to report to their teams in early January.

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League is the only one of three Canadian major-junior hockey leagues to have started play this season.

Play was suspended Dec. 1, with the league saying it hopes to return with its 12 Quebec teams playing in four markets in late January. No date has been set for the return of the QMJHL’s six teams in Atlantic Canada.

The Western Hockey League had hoped to start its season in January, but announced another delay earlier this month.

SaultOnline will be contacting the Greyhounds for comment and interview.
