This weekend’s upcoming series scheduled for Friday, November 17th and Saturday, November 18th between the Eugene Generals and Coeur D’Alene Hockey Academy has been cancelled.
The cancellation comes as a result of Coeur D’Alene’s inability to field a full team for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.
CDA Hockey Academy's coaching staff reached out to the Eugene front office on late Monday evening to notify Generals coaches and staff regarding CDA's sudden roster problems. As details began to emerge and become clearer, the decision was made Wednesday morning by the Eugene Generals front office to not move forward with the matchups.
As a result, all six of this season's previously scheduled games between the Eugene and Coeur D’Alene have now been cancelled (11/17, 11/18, 12/8, 12/9, 1/13 and 1/14).
"We're obviously disappointed but acknowledge that this really falls under the extraordinary circumstance category," said Generals GM Flint Doungchak. "Especially when you consider that we've had some pretty good games that we could build on at the recent USPHL I.H.C. Showcase, you can imagine how the team was looking forward to playing in front of our fans at home. Unfortunately, they will have to wait that much longer. That being said, our team will take advantage of the added time off to rest up before preparing for a very talented and skilled Wenatchee team that awaits early next week."
Tickets to all previously scheduled home games against Coeur D’Alene can be exchanged for any future Eugene Generals home game during the 2017-18 season, and you can exchange your tickets in-person at the Eugene Generals box office before any one of this season’s remaining home games.
Full refunds will be honored for those that wish not to exchange their tickets to a future Eugene Generals home game. You can have your refund processed by calling the Eugene Generals Front Office at (541) 359-4154.
Hockey Fights Cancer Night, presented by the Health and Safety Institute (HSI), which was originally scheduled for this Saturday, has now been postponed to a later date which has yet to be determined.
