OHL announces rescheduling of Spirit/Greyhounds

Wednesday, March 12, 2014   by: Brad Coccimiglio

The Ontario Hockey League, in conjunction with the Saginaw Spirit, announced on Wednesday night that the postponed game in Saginaw between the Spirit and Soo Greyhounds has been rescheduled.

In a meeting with the players, the Spirit organization has decided to resume their schedule on Friday night when they take on the Greyhounds at the Essar Centre in Sault Ste. Marie.

The teams will see their regular season schedules, which were to wrap up on Sunday, extended by one day to play the postponed game.

The two teams will play the postponed game on Monday night in Saginaw, beginning at 7:11 p.m.

Following is a full text release from the OHL:

****
Toronto – Yesterday, upon learning the tragic news about the Saginaw Spirit’s Terry Trafford, it was determined, in consultation with the Spirit that the game scheduled for tonight in Saginaw would be postponed and that the team’s regular season would reconvene when the Spirit players felt ready. 

In speaking with the Spirit today, they have met with their players who have asked to commence playing on Friday night in Sault Ste Marie. 

The OHL has extended the regular season for one day to accommodate the new schedule. 

The team’s remaining regular season schedule is as follows:

Friday March 14, 2014, in Sault Ste Marie at 7:07 pm
Saturday March 15, 2014, in Saginaw against London at 7:11 pm
Monday March 17, 2014, in Saginaw against Sault Ste Marie at 7:11 pm

The League wishes to acknowledge the cooperation of the Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds in accommodating this schedule.

If the hounds meet Saginaw in the playoffs, the hounds should have every game at home

A senseless comment from a senseless person .
There is more to life than hockey.
I commend the Greyhounds, the Spirit and the OHL for their actions.
I find them appropriate and respectful.

CB4, it's comments like yours that make it hard to hope for the best when it comes to the future of mankind. Do you really think that the real tragedy of such a young individual's untimely death is a rescheduled trip to Saginaw for our hockey team? After a good night's sleep I hope you reconsider your comment and offer a sincere apology.

There is no additional trip for the greyhounds it has only extended their season by a day! The only thing comments like the first two prove is that some people who hide behind fake names will say anything for attention, the best thing to do is ignore them. This young man was needing help and didn't get it. How sad to live in that much pain. Very sad!

CB4, you are clearly a MORON!!! That looooooong 4 hour trip down to Saginaw is just gonna knock the shit out the Greyhounds, isn't it??

Half of the key players probably won't even play!!

What a horrible and insensitive thing to say CB. I commend the league for the way they are dealing with this situation. One day won't make a difference, in fact giving Saginaw time to grieve for their friend and teammate is better for both teams. I think it would have been more exhausting for the Hounds to go into Saginaw and try to play under such terrible conditions. My thoughts and best wishes are with Saginaw and all of Traffords friends and family.
