Please see attached memo regarding the increase of misconduct and major penalties over the last moth. This trend is alarming and will be delt with in appropriate fashion. If you have any questions, please direct them to myself.
As we return to the rinks this weekend, Hockey PEI would like to remind its membership of the dangers of transporting children, fully dressed, to arenas. Please see attached the joint statement circulated to membership on December 4, 2020. Additionally, is attached a new document created to illustrate safe transportation to and from Arena's in booster or car seats safely.
Understandable yesterday's news may cause focus to shift, but the safe transportation of kids to hockey remains an absolute requirement.
Please circulate within your association to make sure no teams are sending directives to visiting teams requiring them to arrive fully dressed, or to be dressed in the parking lot.
Thank you for all your hard work,
We will resume the drop off for the NRMHA Registration Draw. Please advise all team members.

Cornwall, PE: North River Minor Hockey Association was saddened to hear about the devastating fire in December where Tyne Valley's community sports centre was declared a total loss. The loss is more than just an ice surface, but a place where community can come together and share memories.
As a result, NRMHA is fully supportive of Tyne Valley's bid for Kraft Hockeyville, in efforts of building a new rink with the potential prize money. The association is willing to help Tyne Valley's efforts in any way possible and welcome the invitation to assist.
President of NRMHA, Caley MacDonald, said: "We understand the importance of local sports centres and their impact on a community. North River minor hockey is glad to provide support in any means necessary to ensure Tyne Valley is successful with their quest for Kraft Hockeyville."
When a community on Prince Edward Island is in need, other communities must step up to help where they can. It is the Island way of doing things and NRMHA understands that.
Tyne Valley has several ways that you can support, including using the hashtag #Rally4TheValley. There is a benefit hockey game being played on February 9th at 4:00PM which includes former NHLer Ray Bourque, being held at the Credit Union Place in Summerside. Additionally, there is an online auction currently ongoing raising funds for the new rink. It can be found at rally4thevalleyauction.ca.
For further information, please contact NRMHA Vice-President Sam MacPhail at email@example.com.
The selection process for the 2019-20 Provincial Championships has been completed. Championship titles will be sought after in arenas across the province this coming March.
