BC Hockey statement from Chief Executive Officer Barry Petrachenko
Thursday, March 12, 2020

The Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL) along with BC Hockey have announced the postponement of the first two (2) games of the playoff series between the Campbell River Storm and Oceanside Generals on Tuesday, March 10 and Friday, March 13, 2020.

At this time, the postponement of the games is precautionary.

With the ongoing international health situation involving COVID-19 (Coronavirus), extra precaution is being administered. Currently no player or staff member on either team has been diagnosed with COVID-19, however several players are self-isolating for influenza-like symptoms on the recommendation of public health officials.

The VIJHL, in consultation with BC Hockey and the Island Health Authority are taking the measures to be extremely cautious in situations with any illnesses. The health and safety of our participants is our priority.

The VIJHL and BC Hockey will communicate any updates to this situation, including the re-scheduled dates of games, when it becomes available.

Currently, no other league playoff games or BC Hockey Championships have been postponed. BC Hockey is working closely with Hockey Canada and the provincial and regional health authorities to monitor all situations daily.
