AJHL planning September start for 2020-21 season

Junior hockey may be returning in the province this fall.

Alberta Junior Hockey League officials say they are planning to begin the 2020-21 season in September, should provincial health regulations allow it.

The League says it will announce a tentative schedule, which includes a modified schedule format for its 15 teams, in early July alongside contingency plans for a delayed season start.

The 14th Annual AJHL Showcase, originally scheduled for September 24– 26 in Camrose, has been postponed with a desire to host the event in the second half of the season.

The 2020-21 season will be the 57th in the AJHL’s history.
