Most of us have come to terms with it by now: there probably won’t be NHL hockey this year. But just because you won’t see Crosby and Ovechkin strut their stuff on national TV, doesn’t mean that there isn’t still tons of exciting, high-level hockey available to keep you entertained. In fact, you can catch some live games right here in Valleyview, where the illustrious Valleyview Jets battle for supremacy in the gritty and competitive Northern Peace Hockey League.
The Valleyview Jets are seeking redemption this season after a disappointing first-round playoff loss to the Falher Pirates last spring. This road to redemption begins at the Polar Palace Arena in Valleyview (4429 52 Ave.) on Thursday Nov. 8, when the Jets host the High Prairie Regals for a home opener that is guaranteed to thrill.
