Petes to Play 2019 Home Opener at the Peterborough Memorial Centre on October 17

April 3, 2019 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Peterborough Petes News Release

(Peterborough, ON) - The Peterborough Petes, in association with the Ontario Hockey League and the City of Peterborough, are excited to announce that the team will play it's 2019 Home Opener on Thursday, October 17 at 7:05pm at the Peterborough Memorial Centre.

The game will mark the opening of the home schedule of the Petes' 64th season, with Peterborough's opponent still to be determined. The 'Mighty Maroon and White' will begin their season on the road in late September, and despite a slight delay to the start of the home portion of the team's 2019-20 schedule (due to the replacement of the PMC floor), the historic club will still play 34 home games during the 68 game regular season.

"We were very keen to work with the City of Peterborough and their contractor to ensure that the necessary work at the Memorial Centre is completed quickly in order to have as little impact on our 2019-20 season as possible," commented Dave Pogue, President of the Peterborough Petes Board of Directors.

"The City has worked diligently to shorten the construction schedule to achieve an earlier than planned completion date," added Mac MacGillivray, Facilities and Energy Manager of the City of Peterborough. "Through negotiations with the contractor and allowing early work to take place that does not disrupt operations, we have achieved a mutually agreed upon 19 week schedule that would allow the Peterborough Petes season to start on Thursday, October 17, 2019."
