UPDATE: This game has been rescheduled to Monday night at 7 p.m.
The Estevan Bruins and Weyburn Red Wings were supposed to conclude their regular season Saturday night with a game in Weyburn, but the current weather conditions in the southeast have made that impossible.
A late winter storm has ravaged the region, with blizzard conditions persisting into Saturday afternoon.
The SJHL announced Saturday morning that the game has been postponed. There is no official word yet on when or if the game will be rescheduled.
It’s possible that the game won’t be rescheduled at all, given that the game is now meaningless in the standings.
All of the first round playoff matchups were determined Friday night. The Bruins will take on the Flin Flon Bombers in a much anticipated rematch of the 2022 SJHL Finals, won by Estevan in seven games. The Wings will tangle with the powerhouse Battlefords North Stars.
The SJHL playoffs begin this Friday March 17.
Saturday’s scheduled game between the Notre Dame Hounds and Melville Millionaires was also postponed by the league due to the weather.
