Cranbrook Bucks’ Dec. 5 tilt postponed

The BC Hockey League (BCHL), and the Cranbrook Bucks, can’t buy a break the last couple of years.

The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged organized sports of all levels and now, thanks to La Niña-grown atmospheric rivers washing over the province, the BCHL is once again finding itself pivoting and reorganizing during the season.

The league announced this morning that for the third week in a row, it has had to reschedule or postpone several upcoming games due to continued travel issues and highway closures in the province.

Included in the latest postponements is the Cranbrook Bucks’ Sunday, Dec. 5 game against the Coquitlam Express at Western Financial Place.

Due to ongoing floods, road closures and the approaching winter weather, the BCHL Nov. 30 said it will remove all out-of-conference games for the remainder of the 2021-22 season.

The league will continue to revise the schedule in the coming weeks to make up postponed games later in the season.

The Bucks, meanwhile, continue to click above .500 hockey, sitting tied for fifth place in the Interior Division with rival Trail Smoke Eaters.

Both clubs sport nine wins, six losses and one overtime loss records heading into tomorrow’s (Dec. 1) clash at Western Financial Place. Game time is 7 p.m.
