The Edmonton Oil Kings would like to make fans aware of the cancellation of our traditional post-game autograph session on Sunday, March 19, 2017 vs. Red Deer Rebels.
Due to the number of recent cases of outbreaks of mumps in Canada and the United States, our organization is continuing to commit to refraining from any direct interaction with fans. While there is still an extremely low risk of spectators contracting the virus, our main concern is for the health and welfare of our fans and players.
While we appreciate this is the final game of the season, with there being more cases as of late it unfortunately became necessary to cancel this event for the protection of the fans and players. While our team staff and players have shown no symptoms of the virus, confirmed cases within our League and other leagues have been reported as recently as this week.
For more information, please review the Statement from the Western Hockey League regarding the mumps virus.
Thank you for your understanding and for supporting your Edmonton Oil Kings.
