The NCJHL is on its mid-season break, but two teams are still scheduled to see action playing the Meyrin Switzerland junior club during its visit to Canada.
On Thursday, Dec. 28, the Swiss will take on the Volants de Gatineau at 2:30 p.m., at the Robert Guertin Arena in Gatineau.
The next day, at 7:30 p.m., the North Dundas Rockets will host the Swiss at the Chesterville Arena.
This is a unique junior-level event for the Volants and Rockets to play against a European team.
The Rockets and the Volants would like thank Hockey Outaouais for their recognition of the NCJHL in these events.
Be there early for a good seat.
