CIHL game in Vanderhoof rescheduled for Jan. 23 due to COVID-19

The Quesnel Kangaroos were set to play the Nechako North Stars this weekend

More games in the Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL) have been postponed due to COVID-19 cases.

The Quesnel Kangaroos were planning on heading to Vanderhoof to play the Nechako North Stars on Jan. 15, but the game has been postponed by the league.

Kangaroos Captain Alessio Tomassetti said it was because of COVID-19 cases. Tomasetti said Quesnel has had a few players feel under the weather throughout the season, but haven’t had a major outbreak.

The new schedule for the Roos will see them play Hazelton at the West Fraser Centre on Jan. 22 in the evening, and then visit Vanderhoof on Jan. 23 at 1 p.m.

“It’s definitely nice to have a two game weekend,” Tomassetti said.

“Gets the guy’s legs going all weekend.”

A CIHL game scheduled between Terrace and Quesnel on Jan. 9 at the West Fraser Centre was also postponed earlier this year.
