FPHL Launches Investigation Into Watertown-Elmira incident
The FPHL is currently investigating an incident that transpired prior to the start of game #1 yesterday between the Elmira Enforcers and the Watertown Wolves. The incident resulted in the game being cancelled. We will continue to investigate the actions of those involved and once we complete our findings, we will take appropriate action.
Our league takes discipline and the safety of all competitors very seriously, issues like today only make our Board Of Governors more committed to the elimination of non-hockey negative actions. We know that incidents like these do not shine our league in a positive light and we hope that we can learn and move forward.
As a result of these actions, the current state of other member organizations and after a meeting of the league’s Board of Governors, the FPHL will suspend play until other clubs can field teams to play in the 2021 season. We believe that additional teams will be allowed to play towards the end of this month.
Obviously, the fluid health issue will have a continued effect on which teams elect to return to action and how we can move forward with the business of hockey.
Our goal will continue to be bringing exciting FPHL hockey to our communities, and we hope to have some positive news within the next few weeks.
