Islanders ready to go, Pirates await return-to-play plan
-by Bill Dunphy
Nothing is for certain these days, but both the Cape Breton West Islanders and Strait Pirates are preparing the best they can for a season of hockey.
Neither the Nova Scotia U18 Major Hockey League nor the Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League have announced return-to-play plans yet, but Islanders coach Nick MacNeil said their plan is in place and just awaiting Hockey Nova Scotia approval.
“The league drew up a proposal and submitted it to Hockey Nova Scotia. I think we’re going to have some good news soon,” he said.
