There are options, but going to the Cornwall Municipal Complex or Benson Center to watch a Colts or Prowlers game is not one of them.

The Colts Jr. A were originally scheduled to play their first game after Christmas this Thursday night in Cornwall, but it was among the 16 Central Canada Hockey League games that the league decided a few weeks ago to postpone until the end. March, due to the pandemic. Even if the league had continued, the Colts would not be able to play a home game this week in the city – the Municipality announced last week that it was canceling all reservations at the Aquatic Center, Benson Center and Civic Complex until to January 4 and possibly longer.

The move forced the Cornwall Prowlers of the Eastern Ontario Super League to announce the postponement of their Sunday game against the Deseronto Bulldogs, which was to be played at the Benson Center.

“We hope to have an (announced) makeup date soon,” EOSHL president and Prowlers owner Mitch Gagné told fans in a recent social media post.

The CCHL, like the City of Cornwall, has moved to be cautiously shutting down as the number of active COVID-19 cases has risen dramatically over the past two weeks, but League Commissioner Kevin Abrams in an announcement from the league has made their expectations clear. Play will resume shortly.

“The (game postponements) allow the league to take the break recommended by the province and the provincial and local public health,” said Abrams.

Abrams added that “the current provincial regulations continue to support play in the CCHL and we look forward to resuming our full roster of games in 2022 and remain vigilant in our commitment to our players, families, supporters and staff at the CCHL. ‘team. “

The Colts’ next scheduled game is Sunday night in Pembroke, and it will almost certainly go as planned. But, it’s a bit riskier for the next scheduled home game, which will be against Rockland on Thursday, January 6th.

The league resumes play in the first puck of 2022 at Carleton Place on Sunday at 3 p.m., during the visit of the Renfrew Wolves.

Revised dates for games rescheduled in December include Carleton Place at Cornwall moved to March 24, the Colts at Rockland changed to March 25 and Cornwall at Smiths Falls slated for March 27.

The rescheduling is further delaying – but only by a week – the start of the first CCHL playoffs to be held since 2019.
