It was the news all SWHL teams and fans were dreading, the season is officially canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

President Joe Cey said it was a difficult one to make, but felt it was necessary to give teams direction moving forward.

Cey also had a conversation with the brass of the Sask Hockey Association this past weekend, about how hockey looks going forward, and things looked bleak to begin play this season.

Cey also added he is hopeful and optimistic, the 2021-22 season will begin as scheduled, this October.
