The Western Hockey League’s B.C. Division has clearance from the provincial government to return to play.
B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix said in a media scrum on Monday the WHL’s return-to-play proposal has been approved in principal, but a series of variances are required from public health authorities.
Neither the league nor the Kamloops Blazers has issued a press release to provide details.
The Blazers, Kelowna Rockets, Vancouver Giants, Prince George Cougars and Victoria Royals have pitched to play out of hubs in Kamloops and Kelowna and stay in those two cities.
B.C. is the last of the WHL’s six jurisdictions to receive approval from its health authorities to start playing games this season.
