After a COVID-induced extended holiday break that lasted ten days, the Ontario Hockey League got back to the ice this week with a half-dozen games, sandwiched around another six postponements because of pandemic restrictions and protocols.

The situation is still fluid because of the spread of the highly contagious Omicron variant, but there are nine more league matches scheduled to go ahead between tonight and January 5, with 14 games postponed during the same period.

The Oshawa Generals’ next two games – in North Bay tonight and at home against the Battalion Sunday – have both been postponed due to league Covid-19 protocols affecting the Oshawa club. Both games will be rescheduled.

The Generals, who sit third in the East Division with a 13-10-3 mark, won’t see the ice until January 6 when they visit the Niagara Ice Dogs at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines, followed by a home date the next night against Ottawa.

Attendance for all indoor sporting events has been capped by the Provincial Government at 1,000 spectators.
