SUDBURY, Ont. – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced Thursday that its 2021-22 regular season will resume, in one week’s time, with game action getting back underway on February 3.

Following provincial guidelines, each of the 11 Ontario-based teams will be allowed to return to the ice for practices and training sessions this coming Monday (Jan. 31).

Featuring a revamped schedule, each of the NOJHL’s 12-member clubs are slotted to complete a 48-game slate, which will run until March 28.

This will include inter-divisional contests with each of the teams having two match-ups, one home and one away, against clubs from the respective East & West Divisions in the league.

A complete list of the remaining NOJHL regular season games for February and March will be released by the league prior to the resumption of play.
