The Magog Cantonniers have the honour of opening the Ligue de hockey M18 AAA du Québec 2021 regular season with an away game against the Phénix du Collège Esther-Blondin.
The puck drop is Thursday evening, and it will be the first competitive match either team has played in 19 months. They will also be in front of a crowd again for the first time since the pandemic shut down minor hockey across Quebec.
The league has also planned a special ceremony for the season opener. Magog will play its first home game on Sunday in an afternoon showdown against the Chevaliers de Lévis. In a press release, the Cantonniers outlined several mandatory rules enforced by the province.
