The Abbotsford Canucks are postponing a pair of games this weekend due to the ongoing state of local emergency due to floods impacting the area.
The team was scheduled to play the Bakersfield Condors on Friday and Sunday and the games have been rescheduled to Jan. 5 and Jan. 10th.
“Our thoughts go out to everyone impacted by the extreme flooding and emergency conditions in the past few days,” said Rob Mullowney, Chief Operating Officer of the Abbotsford Canucks. “We live and work in this community and we are tremendously grateful for all of the front-line emergency personnel who have helped ensure the safety of everyone. Safety is our top priority, and we will stay in contact with the City of Abbotsford and local authorities to extend our support wherever it is needed given the extraordinary circumstances our community is facing.”
Tickets for this weekend’s games will remain valid and can be used for the rescheduled dates.
