Hazelton pulls out of CIHL

The upcoming Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL) schedule is being reworked

The upcoming Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL) schedule is being reworked after the Hazelton Wolverines – who had re-applied and been accepted back into the CIHL at this year’s AGM – withdrew from the league, citing lack of community support and discovery of previous year’s debt, reads a notice posted on the CIHL website.

The Omenica Ice of Vanderhoof informed the league they would not be playing this year, and the addition of the Wolverines would have kept the existing east/west split of the league in tact. It is still unclear how this will affect the 2013/2014 schedule.
