Game On! Lumber Kings Return to Action February 6th Versus Brockville Braves

There have been a lot of false starts, but this time the Central Canada Hockey League is confident it will be able to resume its 2021-22 regular season.  After the Ontario government announced it would lift restrictions beginning January 31st, the league has announced its teams will resume practices and training on that date with games re-starting a couple of days later.

The Pembroke Lumber Kings will face their first game action in more than a month-and-a-half on Sunday, February 6th when the Kings host the Brockville Braves for a 7 p.m. face-off. During the extended league break which started after the Kings edged the Nepean Raiders 4-3 on December 15th, the Kings had 13 of their games postponed.  The league is now working to reschedule those games with a plan to complete its regular season by Sunday, April 3rd with all of the league's 12 teams playing a full 55-game regular season and playoffs.

Former Lumber King Mason McTavish On His Way to Olympics

The cancellation of the World Junior Hockey tournament was a huge disappointment for former Pembroke Lumber King forward Mason McTavish, but now the third round draft pick of the Anaheim Ducks will get another opportunity to represent his country in international competition. McTavish has been selected to the Canadian men's Olympic team and at 19 years of age will be the youngest player on the team. McTavish turns 19 on January 30th.

McTavish is getting a chance to play at the Olympics because the National Hockey League announced a few weeks ago its players would not be competing, primarily because of the rising number of COVID-19 cases. McTavish started the 2021-22 season by playing nine games with the Ducks before he was returned to his Ontario Hockey League team, the Peterborough Petes.  The Petes traded McTavish to the Hamilton Bulldogs at the OHL trade deadline on January 10th.

 

Canada won a bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics which the NHL also skipped.  The Olympic hockey tournament begins on February 9th in China.
