Fans of senior hockey will be pleased to learn that the West Coast Senior Amateur Hockey League will be going ahead for the 2017-18 hockey season.  League president Andy Brake confirmed that the season will involve an 18-game regular season and a playoff.  Brake indicates that the league’s opening offering with a trial season last year proved that senior hockey is viable on the west coast.

The Corner Brook Royals, Deer Lake Red Wings, Port Aux Basques Mariners and Stephenville Jets will lace up their skates again this season.  Brake emphasized there would be no paid players.  Players will be purely amateur and be comprised of local players, no imports.

When asked about participating in the Herder Memorial Championship, Brake indicated that while it was discussed by the league’s executive, it was highly unlikely this would occur.

Play is scheduled to commence mid fall.
