Will the 2020-21 season start in September as per normal?

In a statement from Commissioner Branch on June 16th, the league announced that training camps and on-ice play will begin as soon as government and public health agencies advise us that we are allowed to do so.  We plan to drop the puck in the Fall, but in the meantime, our coaches and players are getting ready to play and teams are working towards ensuring that when we do return it will be the great hockey and fan experience that you have become accustomed to.

Yes, we are accepting 2020-2021 season ticket renewals.   We have updated our payment plan if you would like to get more information please email

Is my seat location guaranteed for the 2020-21 season?

At this point we have not made any changes to our seating map.  Prior to the season starting, we will review our seat holder map to ensure our allocation is consistent with social distancing protocols at that time.  With the size of our facility we do feel confident that we can offer all our season seat holders a great view under the update health guidelines.

If I purchase season tickets, can I get a refund if the season is shortened?

Yes, refunds will be given for any game that is not played during the 20-21 season.
