Tough start to the NBPEI Major U18 League. Damage and power outages caused by the impact of Hurricane Fiona have resulted in the NBPEI Major U18 Showcase to be cancelled. It is hoped that the showcase will be rescheduled later in the season. Some games are scheduled in New Brunswick for this coming weekend. The league schedule will be up to date with upcoming games.
With hurricane Fiona arriving in Atlantic Canada over the weekend a number of games have been postponed. Friday's Moose-Vito's game, Saturday's Knights-Moose game and Sunday's Wild-Flyers, Knights-Caps games have all been postponed. The league schedule will be updated if additional postponements are announced.
