The Oshawa Generals first home game in nearly a month has been pushed back once again as the Ontario Hockey League announced seven more postponements due to COVID-19 protocol.

Friday’s match at the Tribute Communities Centre against Ottawa is one of the games postponed, though the league has declared they will re-schedule the match. The league remains committed to finishing the season.

Other games postponed due to virus protocols include:

  • Wednesday, January 5 – Windsor Spitfires at Guelph Storm
  • Thursday, January 6 – Hamilton Bulldogs at Peterborough Petes
  • Friday, January 7 – Niagara IceDogs at Hamilton Bulldogs
  • Friday, January 7 – Owen Sound Attack at Guelph Storm
  • Saturday, January 8 – Guelph Storm at Owen Sound Attack
  • Saturday, January 8 – Ottawa 67’s at Hamilton Bulldogs

The league also announced new dates for games already cancelled or postponed, including four involving Oshawa:

  • Tuesday, January 11 – Kingston Frontenacs at Oshawa Generals, 7:05pm (from Dec. 19)
  • Tuesday, March 1 – Ottawa 67’s at Oshawa Generals, 7:05pm (from Dec. 28)
  • Tuesday, March 8 – Oshawa Generals at North Bay Battalion, 7:00pm (from Dec. 31)
  • Tuesday, March 15 – North Bay Battalion at Oshawa Generals, 7:05pm (from Jan. 1)

Oshawa’s first game back since the pandemic-induced holiday break is tonight in St. Catharines against the Niagara Ice Dogs. The games will be played without fans, as will all league matches at least until January 26 when the provincial government re-asses its move back to a modified Stage 2.

The Ontario Hockey League Board of Governors met Wednesday to address next steps in light of the recent order issued by the Ontario government.

The League has reaffirmed at the meeting its commitment to continue the 2021-22 OHL season.

The OHL is currently in conversation with government and public health and will have further updates in this area as they become available.
