President of the Big Six Hockey League Rae Wright has confirmed that the decision to cancel the rest of the season has been agreed upon as some towns plan to shut off their ice plants and let the ice stay in as long as the weather will keep it cold.
"Obviously there wasn't enough games played this year, so there's not going to be a scoring champion this year, no goaltending records, I mean basically this season is just a wipe. We've lost one full season and then obviously the league championship last year, so no league champion two years in a row. I don't know if that's happened to any league ever."
The B6HL will be skipping their usual spring meeting where they discuss potential issues and changes that need to be made during the offseason. The one thing that will change is people from the league that do collect a paycheck, such as Wright himself, will be waving the majority of their fees they collect this year to help the league financially.
There is some good news surrounding the B6HL, and that is the possible return of the Oxbow Huskies for next season. According to Wright, who farms just outside of Oxbow, there sounds like there is enough interest out in their town to bring the Huskies back into the league, and because they've paid a fee for a leave of absence for the last two seasons, they would come back with no issue or probation.
