URGENT Duffield Notice Concerning CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)  

In an effort to help stop the spread of the serious Coronavirus…..Hockey Canada has mandated that all hockey programs (Minor Hockey, Junior Hockey and Women's Hockey) be canceled effective today March 13, 2020.




As a result, the following has been cancelled
1)    All GTHL Playoff, Clancy, Founder Cup Games and associated team practices
2)    All NYHL Select  Games and associated team practices
3)    All Duffield House League Games and associated team practices

The following has been postponed until further notice:
4)    All NHL/NHL PA “First Shift” and “Second Shift” development session
5)    Duffield’s year end banquets (GTHL and House League/Select)

We know this sudden cancellation will be a shock to many parents and players…but as a community there is nothing more important than the health and safety of our children and families. 

Duffield will be providing further details as this serious situation evolves. We are currently developing contingency plans on how parents and kids can receive their year end awards ( trophies, pictures) over the next few weeks. 

Please send an email to [email protected]  if you have any questions.  

Please stay safe and healthy !!!!

HOCKEY CANADA STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)  

CALGARY, Alta. – The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada from Tom Renney, chief executive officer, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer, on the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 


“Without question, this an unprecedented period of difficulty for the sports world. The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, fans, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to Hockey Canada. 

After much consultation with the Hockey Canada membership, our chief medical officer and public health officials, the Hockey Canada Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities, including our national championships, until further notice, effective Friday, March 13, 2020. 

We recognize the tremendous effort that has been put forth all year by individuals across the country as they participate in Canada’s game. Although it is difficult to process the hockey season ending abruptly, we feel this is the best course of action in order to do our part in keeping our country safe.” ”   

As such, all Minor Hockey, Junior Hockey and Women's Hockey, including the OHF and Regional Championships and subsequent Hockey Canada sanctioned functions (year-end banquet, etc.) are suspended for the remainder of the season.
