The Delisle Chiefs will play host to the 2022 Prairie Junior Hockey League (PJHL) All-Star Game. The game will take place on Saturday, January 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Delisle AGT Centennial Arena.

The game will feature all-star players from the PJHL’s Bob Dybvig North Division as they take on the visiting all-star players from the PJHL’s Bill Johnston South Division.

Delisle Chiefs president Wes Noon is looking forward to welcoming the league’s best.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be the organization hosting this event. To be able to host this game and event will showcase not only our league, but our players to the residents of Delisle as well as reaching people that don’t typically see how great our league is or the high quality of players and that we have,” said Noon.

Delisle Chiefs head coach and GM Eric Ditto is excited about being able to showcase what the PJHL has to offer.

“An event like this is another step to show the caliber of our top players. We think it’s another small step in recruiting more players, scouts, and fans to our league in the future,” he said.

Not only will it put the PJHL on display, Ditto feels that it’s also an opportunity to show how hard the Chiefs franchise is working behind the scenes to give the players an experience that is more than just about the game.

“We feel that the Chiefs are more than just about the hockey,” said Ditto. “We take a lot of pride in the effort our players, staff and volunteers put into this organization on a daily basis and we look forward to putting on an overall event that everyone will enjoy. We hope the community of Delisle and the teams in the league will remember this event for years to come.”

For Noon and the Chiefs organization it’s about more than just being an event host.

“Our goal from the initial talk of hosting the all-star game is to create a game and atmosphere for our players to enjoy and have memories for a lifetime,” he said.

More details on the events of the day are forthcoming as the all-Star game event will feature more than just the game itself.
