a short season will suit them well in terms of player development in preparation for the 21-22 season.
Yes. The timing of the pandemic (as horrific and tragic as it is) is good for the Ice Dogs.

I have been predicting this would happen for 6 months or more:

Government of Saskatchewan announces new funding to support junior hockey


Today, the Government of Saskatchewan announced funding to support the province’s Western Hockey League (WHL) teams and the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL). This support will help the survival of these leagues and their teams in Saskatchewan in the face of the challenges created by COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our junior hockey teams are a critical part of the cultural fabric and local economies across the province,” Minister of Trade and Export Development Jeremy Harrison said. “Necessary restrictions due to COVID-19 have had a significant impact on these leagues and their teams and this support will help them address these financial challenges.”

The provincial government is providing $3 million in support to help WHL teams address revenue shortfalls as a result of COVID-19 restrictions. Each of Saskatchewan’s WHL teams will receive $600,000.

The SJHL will receive $1 million in provincial support. This funding will be provided to the League.

Don't be surprised that other Provincial governments do a similar thing.

Who would support the Knights getting this 'reward' as they get so much from 'the League' ( ie=Branch )as it is.

That is great to see
And if I was an owner I wouldn?t turn down a free $600k

But I can?t imagine it?s going to help that much

Even with that I would guess each team is losing a decent amount of money

Great to see a govt step forward though

These teams should get some type of directed funding ... seems like every other industry gets something
