A source close to the scene is saying that the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League could — could — have a team in Powassan for the 2014-2015 season.
Powassan — which is located a mere 18 miles from North Bay — has been home to a team in the Greater Metro Jr. Hockey League since 2008.
North Bay Battalion of the Ontario Hockey League would have a direct affiliation with Powassan should it become a part of the NOJHL, according to the source.
North Bay had been a part of the NOJHL since 2002 as first the Skyhawks and then the Trappers but the franchise has been approved to relocate to nearby Mattawa for the 2014-2015 season and be called the Blackhawks.
The NOJHL will hold its Annual General Meeting in Sault Ste. Marie on the June 20 weekend.
