Mooseheads Returning to Action this Weekend
Halifax, NS - Public Health Officials of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island have approved the league's plans for a safe return to play in the 2020-2021 regular season with games among the Halifax Mooseheads, Cape Breton Screaming Eagles and the Charlottetown Islanders. The New Brunswick Government and its Public Health Officials have delayed their return to regular activities until the situation has improved in their province. The current restrictions put in place by the Nova Scotia Government preclude fans from attending games held in the province prior to February 8th, at which time restrictions will be reassessed moving forward. In keeping the best interests of our players in mind, the Mooseheads have made the decision to resume action as soon as possible. "The current situation is clearly not ideal, but it is extremely important for the development of our players, along with their health and well being, that they return to the ice to play the game they love. We are excited to be able to provide them with that opportunity," said Mooseheads President Brian Urquhart. "We realize that being able to cheer on the Mooseheads is very important to many people in our community. It's very difficult for us not to be able to share in that excitement with our fans for these next two home games that fall under the restrictions up until at least February 8th. The last 10 months have been absolutely devastating for our business, but we are looking forward to when we can all be together again at Scotiabank Centre."
The Mooseheads would like to thank our Public Health Officials for their assistance during these uncertain times.
Fans who purchased individual tickets for the November 21st and December 9th games will be automatically refunded by Ticket Atlantic. Mooseheads Season Ticket Members and 15-Game Pack Holders that purchased ticket bundles that include these games will receive further information via email in the coming days.
