LONGUEUIL, QC – Following the Quebec Government’s announcement to prohibit the practice of sports in the designated red zones, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League wanted to express its disappointment with this decision.
Since the beginning of training camps at the end of August, the conduct of our activities has been above reproach . The return to play protocol was approved and applauded by Public Health Officials in Quebec and by the three Maritime-based Provinces in which the league operates. It has been hailed as thorough and effective. As a matter of fact, the League would like to congratulate the players and team staff members for their flawless execution.
Over the course of the next few days, we will share with Quebec Public Health Officials additional measures which will render the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada’s and Quebec Remparts’ bubbles even more secure. We hope that these new directives will be well-received by Quebec’s health agency. The QMJHL is convinced that these additional measures will go above and beyond what is required to protect our players, staff and officials and enable all of our teams to continue playing.
