The Manitoba Junior Hockey League is back on the ice in Virden.
The Tundra Oil & Gas Place – as well as rinks in Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie – are hosting the league’s spring development program. Sessions started in Virden last week. They will run three times a week until the end of the month, Virden Oil Capitals head coach Tyson Ramsey said.
“The development program is put on by the MJHL and is an opportunity for rostered players from the league to get back on the ice,” he said. “The sessions will be largely skill based and will obviously follow all public health guidelines set out by the province, but this is certainly a great step to getting our athletes back on the ice.”
Ramsey said five players from Virden’s roster from this past season are participating. A couple of players who have signed letters of intent with the Junior A club are also involved.
