CUBS MAKE THEIR RETURN ON HOME ICE THURSDAY NIGHT

The Greater Sudbury Cubs will make their return to the Countryside Arena and the NOJHL when the second-half regular season schedule resumes this Thursday night when they host the ESPANOLA EXPRESS. The action begins at 7:30 pm Thursday night at the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex – the new south-end home of the Greater Sudbury Jr. A Cubs!

Admission to the game will be restricted to those that show proof of vaccination and a QR code either printed or on their phone. Facemasks and social distancing will also be required. A maximum of 400 fans can attend the venue. Admission is only $10 for adults and $5 for juniors (18 and under) and seniors (65 and over). Youngsters 12 years of age and under are admitted free when accompanied by an Adult. Thursday’s game will mark the arrival of the Cubs newest forward LIAM DOYLE who was acquired from Hearst back in December. The Ottawa native played 11 games for the Hearst Lumberjacks last season and has recorded 8 points in 25 games this season.

Recent additions JOSH BOUCHER and NICHOLAS TOFFOLI will also make their home debut with the Cubs since the veteran duo were acquired from the Espanola Express in early December. The Cubs will play their second game in as many nights when they travel to Sault Ste Marie on Friday to play the first-place T-Birds. Friday’s game can be viewed live on HockeyTV.com. The Cubs look forward to welcoming their fans and sponsors back to the Countryside Arena this Thursday night at 7:30! See you there!
