Power outage postpones NOJHL playoff opener in Sudbury
SUDBURY – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced this evening that tonight’s playoff opening game between the Espanola Rivermen and the Sudbury Nickel Barons at McClelland Arena in Copper Cliff has been postponed due to a power outage.
A blown transformer in the Greater Sudbury area caused the blackout, thus forcing the cancellation of the game.
The game will be replayed with the date and time of that contest being made available once finalized.
The NOJHL apologizes for any inconvenience these events may have caused
