The Alberta Junior Hockey League has released the schedule for the upcoming 2019-2020 season.

This season’s schedule has been reduced from 60 to 58 games due to the Calgary Mustangs taking a leave of absence. All 15 AJHL teams will play 28 home and away dates with two games being played at the annual AJHL Showcase in Camrose at the end of September.

For a second straight season the Fort McMurray Oil Barons will open the year at home against the Grande Prairie Storm. The home opener is scheduled for Friday September 13th and they will host the Storm again on the 14th.

Friday and Saturday nights will be the Oil Barons primary home dates with 11 games scheduled at the Casman Centre on both Friday’s and Saturday’s. The MOB will play two Sunday afternoon home games as well as three Tuesday night games and one on Thursday.

The Barons will play two exhibition games at the Casman Centre on September 6th and 7th against the Spruce Grove Saints.

The MOB will finish the regular season at home on Friday, February 21st against the Storm.
