The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) is planning for a full return to play Friday, September 24th, just two weeks later than the season would normally begin.
The league recently made the announcement for the puck to drop as a way to reassure players, coaches, volunteers and fans there will be a 2021-2022 season.
“The SJHL and the Saskatchewan Government thank the efforts of Saskatchewan people to follow the rules of the provincial health order and to get vaccinated. We are moving forward in our roadmap to get back to normal, which includes SJHL hockey starting this Fall,” Immigration and Career Training Minister Jeremy Harrison said.
The Board of Governors and the GM/Coaches of the SJHL teams will begin meeting soon to discuss the schedule for the upcoming season.
The SJHL will also continue to provide fans with more detailed information on all significant dates as we move through the summer and towards a return to play. However, the season ahead is planned for a regular 58 game schedule.

Sept 24th– Start date of SJHL regular season
