INDUCTION DINNER POSTPONED UNTIL SUMMER OF 2021
Yorkton, SK - The Ted Knight Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame (SHHOF) along with this year’s host committee for the 2020 Induction Dinner in Yorkton have made the difficult decision to postpone the event which was scheduled for July 24th at the Yorkton Curling Rink. The factors which ultimately lead to this decision were concerns over the current COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding public health and the host committee’s ability to operate in terms of ticket sales, sponsorship acquisition and the capacity to put on a first-class event. The Induction Dinner which is sponsored by SaskTel had previously announced it’s class of inductees on February 28th. Those selected will carry forward along with the host community of Yorkton for the 2021 event. A date will be announced for the 2021 Induction Dinner once a decision has been finalized.
The seven (7) inductees and two (2) teams that were previously announced are as follws;
Player Category: Kelly Buchberger
