SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League has announced tonight’s scheduled game between the Soo Thunderbirds and Timmins Rock at John Rhodes Community Centre in Sault Ste. Marie has been postponed.
The cause of the cancellation resulted as Timmins was en route to Sault Ste. Marie only to see Highway 17 being closed in both directions, following a serious motor vehicle collision, as emergency crews attended to the situation thus preventing the Rock from arriving in time for the game.
The make-up date for this game will be Thursday, Jan. 11 at 7:30 p.m. back at John Rhodes.
