As a result of COVID-19 protocols, Peterborough Petes’ next three major youth hockey games have been postponed, the Ontario Hockey League announced Tuesday afternoon.

The OHL said Petes games involving the Barrie Colts and Niagara IceDogs will be rescheduled at a later date. The Colts were scheduled to visit the Peterborough Memorial Center on Thursday night, while the Petes and IceDogs were scheduled to meet in back-to-back games at St. Catharines and Peterborough on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

The league says the Colts have suspended all of their team’s activities, resulting in the postponement of five of their games.

“The Ontario Hockey League and Peterborough Petes will not provide comment at this time,” Petes said in a statement. “The league will provide an update on rescheduling information once the new dates are confirmed.”

On December 4, the Petes postponed their game against the Mississauga Steelheads as a precautionary measure after a positive test for COVID-19 was reported within Petes’ organization.

The Petes said the digital tickets issued for the three postponed games will be reissued for the postponed games when the new game dates are confirmed. Physical tickets will also be accepted for rescheduled games.

Through December 19, the league postponed 18 games due to COVID-19 protocols. With Tuesday’s announcement, 10 future games are now postponed.
