The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League has announced there will be no playoffs this year, in exchange they are going to be doing seven game cohort series.
The Blind River Beavers and the Soo Thunderbirds have been matched together for this series. Whoever wins will receive the first ( and hopefully only ) ever COVID cup.
Two points will be given to the winning team, 1 point to a team who loses in a shootout. If you win a period, you will get half a point. At the end of the seven games all the points will be added up and the team with the most points wins the cup.
The MVP and team awards will be handed out at the end of the series.
