In the fall of 1971, a group of government employees met to set up a hockey league to replace the government team, the Provincials, in the Civil Service league. Leo McCann was one of those employees and served on the executive for a number of years. He played until about the mid 1990s. For a number of years there was an award named after him to recognize contribution to the league. He will always be remembered for the unofficial rule named after him. You need to score a goal to return to play the next year. Anytime I talked to him, he asked how the league is doing. Leo McCann passed away March 30, 2022, aged 82.

Due to the holiday on Monday, the Mary Brown’s Centre will be closed. The games will be added to the end of the regular schedule.
Due to the impending storm, and in conjunction with Mary Brown’s Centre, we have decided to cancel hockey this evening. Also, we will be reducing our regular season from 33 games, down to 30 games. This will allow us to complete our season and full playoffs by May 15th. Details about second half round fees will be communicated by your team reps soon.
Our regular season will resume on February 13th. All postponed games have been rescheduled, and added to the website. We are cautiously optimistic that we can complete all of these games, plus the full playoff schedule by May 15th.
