2020-21 SEASON CANCELLATION
Submitted By EHL on Wednesday, February 3, 2021
This hockey season has been challenging from many perspectives and we have tried to offer hockey programming in alignment with the recommendations of our Public Health Unit and our governing bodies whenever possible.  However, despite the recent announcement that the City of Toronto maybe ending their lockdown on March 9th, 2021, the EHL has decided to officially cancel the remainder of the 2020-2021 season.   

This decision not only reflects the continued priority of the health and well being of our players, coaches, officials, and volunteers, but also an assessment of the time it would take for ice to be reinstalled by the City and restart programming relative to time remaining in the season.

On behalf of the staff, volunteers and Board of Directors, thank you for your patience and understanding this season.  We look forward to returning to the rinks under more normal circumstances in September.
I would also like to thank our staff and volunteers for all their efforts. They worked many late nights and endured countless frustrations to offer an important outlet for our players during these unprecedented circumstances.

If you have any questions, please contact our hockey office staff.

Stay safe.
