This brings to close our 2018-19 season. I would like to thank all of our Managers for the work they do keeping senior hockey alive in their communities. There has to be someone in every community who keeps senior hockey alive and our Managers are integral in making that happen. To the volunteers in our rinks that are at the door, or selling 50/50 tickets or acting as "spotters" for our Tweets thank you for your help. To my fellow officials that are in the box for each and every game, thank you.Thank you to Greg Soroka and the Referees and Linesmen that work our games. Most importantly, thank you to our players that commit to senior hockey. Whether it is a quiet evening in November or a full rink during playoffs or Provincials we all love watching the exciting brand of senior hockey that you bring us. To the fans, thank you for supporting senior hockey locally and throughout our province. We all have the same goals and your support is so important.

Our league will be having a spring meeting. This meeting pertains to rules and regulations and discussion about the next year of senior hockey. I will update after we have this meeting.

Thank you!
