A message from the Commissioner

To our Fans, Sponsors & Hockey Community…

The Manitoba Junior Hockey League along with all of you have been faced with an unprecedented set of circumstances which challenge our way of life.

Along with all Manitoba Businesses and Community groups we worked shoulder to shoulder with our Government Liaisons and Public Health Authorities to put in place protocols that would keep our employee’s, players, and patrons safe.

We worked diligently with Hockey Canada, Sport Manitoba and Hockey Manitoba to put in extensive Hockey specific protocols which would allow us to Return to Play in a safe manner, while balancing the Social/Mental/Physical health and safety of our Players, Staff and general public.

We have shown without question that the Manitoba Junior Hockey League can offer hockey in a safe environment.

Since early summer, we worked diligently to put develop a phased in approach for Return to Play Protocols which have been incorporated by minor hockey and across the Junior Hockey Leagues in Canada.

We have been leaders throughout through our efforts to help allow hockey to be played in a safe and structured environment.

We were the first Junior Hockey League in Canada to receive approvals across the various regulating authorities to resume the game of hockey.

All of our member teams have been successful in their contribution to the Social, Mental, Physical, and economic fabric of our Communities.

We are going to regroup, refocus, and reflect on what has worked well this season to date and areas for improvement.

We appreciate your support and understanding when we return better than ever.

Kevin Saurette
MJHL Commissioner
