The NOJHL had posted this release a few hours before the Timmins Rock and the Cochrane Crunch were set to clash for another exciting game.

The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced late this afternoon that out of respect for Ryan and Katherine Leonard, tonight’s (Thursday, Jan. 16) contest at Tim Horton Events Centre between the Timmins Rock and the Cochrane Crunch has been postponed.

A make up date for this contest will be announced by the league once it is finalized.

The Crunch later posted on twitter that the son of Head Coach/General Manager Ryan Leonard was involved in a serious car accident.

There have been no further update since then, and now the Rock’s next game is scheduled for Saturday January 18 as they’ll host the Kirkland Lake Gold Miners.
