PRACTICE MOVED INDOORS

Monday's practice (10:15 a.m. to 12:10 a.m.) has been moved indoors to the Commonwealth Community Recreation Centre fieldhouse due to poor air quality caused by smoke.

For media interested in attending, please see the following:

  • Media are permitted to watch walkthrough from the public area just outside the fieldhouse (glass viewing).
  • Saturday's media availability will now be staged virtually following practice
