After having this past season cut short, the Manitoba Junior Hockey League is optimistic heading towards the 2021/22 season starting this fall.
"For myself, players, coaches and the entire organizations it something exciting to look towards, with everyone full of optimism to play a full season of hockey again."
"It's something we've discussed for the last few years is to go away from the balanced schedule, and I think it'll provide less travel costs and produce more rivalries within the teams which I think will be good," Saurette adds.
Saurette adds even with having the last couple of seasons' cut short and during these tough times, that all their 12 franchises are optimistic and resilient.
"I just can't commend them all enough, I know it wasn't easy to deal with what was thrown at them with all the pivots and the financial hardships, but our teams are very resilient and are fully on-board and ready to start the new season this fall."
