Saturday Night Game in Western
Please be aware that the Western team along with Hockey PEI will be doing a special tribute to Ethan Reilly and Alex Hutchinson at their season opener on Saturday, November 7th. The Western Team have asked that on Saturday night, if our spectator team number could be limited to 30 persons (since they wish to invite more local fans from the Reilly and Hutchinson families). Since we are usually permitted 2 guests per player, can I kindly ask parents for 9 volunteers to not attend the Saturday game ( I already have one volunteer confirmed). Please email or text if you are willing to not attend ….once I have the 9, I will send an email.
In recognition of the Reilly and Hutchinson families, the U18 Matrix team wishes to make a monetary donation to the families at this game that would be presented that evening. If anyone wishes to make a monetary contribution to the Reilly/Hutchinson families, please pass along any donation you wish at the Friday night game at the APM …we will have a Donation Box at our game (we opted for a donation box in lieu of the 50/50 proceeds since the sales are limited due to our restricted numbers).
Looking for few Volunteers
We do have a music person arranged for the season ….this is a team paid position (but they do get counted in our numbers of our cohort).

Some reminders about the upcoming exhibiton games.
Exhibition Games are:
At this time, we just wanted to advise that there are still no parents allowed to attend games at APM centre or CARI. Guidelines on spectators are set by each rink through discussions with Hockey PEI.
We understand that as parents, not being able to be in the rink is frustrating. We thank you again for your patience and trust. We hope to see you all in the rink soon!
October 9, 2020
First of all we would like to thank all players for a great tryout process. We have seen some major improvement as the process went on, so these decisions were hard and required a lot of conversations between coaches and evaluators. We wish everyone the best this season!
Please note the schedule for next week:
Hockey PEI has announced they are moving into Phase 4 as of October 13th. And with that we are able to have exhibition games. But even with this announcement, the rink procedures remain the same at APM Centre. We understand that as parents, not being able to be in the rink is frustrating. We thank you again for your patience and trust. And we hope to see you folks in here soon!
