For the second straight year, there will be no NWJHL champion, and nobody to lift the Senators Cup.
The NWJHL, along with all junior and senior leagues part of Hockey Alberta, made the decision to end the 2020-21 regular season. The decision came following a meeting between league representatives and Hockey Alberta on Feb. 8.
"The NWJHL including all six teams, though saddened by this news, remains focused and will wait for the AHS restrictions to be lifted in order to get back to on-ice development and exhibition games to put a proper end to a dismal season," the league said in a statement.
"The NWJHL would like to express its appreciation to all the teams for hanging in there and remaining positive throughout all this."
