IMPORTANT  MEMO  FROM  HOCKEY NOVA SCOTIA

Leagues will be starting up soon and some players will have suspensions that carried over,  that have not been served as of yet. 

It is the Coaches responsibility to make sure that if any of their players have a suspension that they are served since it would be the Head Coach that would be in violation of playing a suspended player
