After much consultation with the Hockey Canada membership, our chief medical officer and public health officials, the Hockey Canada Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities, including our national championships, until further notice, effective Friday, March 13, 2020.
We recognize the tremendous effort that has been put forth all year by individuals across the country as they participate in Canada’s game. Although it is difficult to process the hockey season ending abruptly, we feel this is the best course of action in order to do our part in keeping our country safe.”
OHF and thereby GTHL is following Hockey Canada’s lead and have cancelled all organization and team activities including any remaining games and practices for rest of the season.

The North York Rangers Minor Atom AAA team embarked on their 1st away tournament of the season as a part of the Niagara North Stars tournament in St.Catherines, The tournament included many teams from the OMHA and the US and the host Niagara team did a great job all weekend. The team overcame some adversity being down 4-2 in the quarter final game and clawed back for a 5-4 win. They played the Southern Tier Admirals in the semi finals, the same team they tied in the round robin and after a slow first period, broke away to win 8-1. In a Cinderella story, NYR was to play the host Niagara team in the finals (the only team without a blemish on their record) and right off the hop, goaltender Abbey Petro was determined to backstop this win with a few spectacular saves and the offence fed off that scoring 6 straight goals after being down 2-1. A decisive 6 goal win (7-1) and NYR has their 1st tournament victory as a team!
