Hello NSFIHA Avalanche Families and Players:

On behalf of the Board, we would like to thank you all for your patience and support while we worked diligently behind the scenes to prepare a safe plan to return to hockey this season. There have been many moving parts that have needed to come together to make this final plan happen with ongoing coordination with Hockey Canada, BC Hockey, ViaSport, PCAHA and municipal facilities. In order to stay on top of all the return to sport information and new developments for minor hockey, our Board also continues to network with PCAHA and other local minor hockey associations to ensure we get our players back on the ice in the safest way possible for all.

Our Avalanche Return to Hockey Plan is now complete and available here; it is also posted on our new COVID-19 page on our website so you can easily find resources and updates as needed. Please be aware that this plan will no doubt change based on ongoing updates from relevant sports, health and government authorities.

If you have any questions as this process unfolds, please feel free to reach out to me as the lead Communication Officer for the Return to Hockey.

Look forward to seeing everyone safely on the ice soon!

Andrew Smyth
NSFIHA President
