The Downtown Collingwood Eddie Bush Memorial Arena will host a Major A Hockey game in September.
The OHL Barrie Colts will be in town to host the Sudbury Wolves on Tuesday September 4th at 6:00 p.m.
The game will kick off the start of the 2018-19 hockey season for Collingwood Minor Hockey and give hockey fans a first-hand look at exciting Major A Hockey action. These players will be going all-out to make one last good showing prior to the launch of the new hockey season.
The game could be representing the beginning of a new era of hockey for Collingwood. The recent purchase of the 4-sided LCD video scoreboard/clock from the Barrie Colts for the downtown Collingwood arena coupled with the OHL pre-season game is hopefully setting the stage for more hockey announcements for Collingwood.
A full house for this pre-season OHL game would certainly send a message to the OHA that Collingwood is ready for the return of junior hockey.
New LCD video scoreboard/clock has been purchased from the Barrie Colts and will soon be installed in the downtown Collingwood arena
Recent upgrades to the downtown arena have impressed the management of the Barrie Colts hockey team. The return of junior hockey to Collingwood is widely anticipated but will require support from the community to make it happen.
