Melville Prairie Fire will be dropped from SFMAAAHL as league moves to 7 teams for 2019/20 season

The Saskatchewan Hockey Association has undertaken an initiative over the past 3 years to grow female hockey in the province and with that comes the announcement of their new "Female Development Model", which was finalized this past weekend

One big change sees the Saskatchewan Female Midget AAA Hockey League moving from 8 to 7 teams ahead of the start of the 2019/20 hockey season, which means the Melville Prairie Fire AAA program will be moved from Midget AAA to down to a 11-team, Midget AA league. 

The Prairie Fire in Melville have been part of the SFMAAAHL since the league's inaugural year in 2006.

The team will finish out their 2018/19 season and then returning eligible players for next year will have the choice of where they will play for the 2019/20 season. 

The Prairie Fire currently sit in a tie for 4th place in the standings with a 4-4 record with their next game being on Tuesday Nov. 20th when they visit the Notre Dame Hounds.
