    OHL getting ready to restart play

    The Ontario Hockey League has announced plans to get the 2020-21 season underway.

    The league released a statement today that they're looking at a December 1st opening night, with all teams playing 64 games(down from the usual 68)and for the season to end April 29, 2021. Playoffs would be best of 5 series in the first two rounds, and best of 7 for the last 2.

    The Memorial Cup(which pits the champions of the each of the 3 major junior teams and the host city)will be held June 17th-27th in either Oshawa or Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.

    I was just wondering about the CHL today. I had hoped they would start in September like usual, and cozens could get a few months of play in before sabres camp

    I haven't heard anything about the WHL or the QMJHL yet.

    And SPEAKING of the WHL....they have the same problem the OHL has: What do you do with the U.S. based teams? (The OHL has 3(Erie, Flint & Saginaw), the WHL has 5(Portland, Seattle, Everett(WA), Spokane and Tri-City(Kennewick, Pasco and Richmond).) That part, especially when it comes to the OHL, I haven't heard about yet.

    Likely not to be. And I wouldn't be surprised to see the NHL keep the bubble format when the regular season begins, either. It's worked out well for them. Unlike some leagues....cough...MLB...cough....

    Well....turns out they WON'T start play in February as they had hoped, for a number of reasons.
