Everyone connected with the Peterborough Phantoms organisation and the Planet Ice National League are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II which took place yesterday afternoon (September 8th)
It was unanimously agreed that the ice hockey community should come together at their rinks to honour, remember and celebrate Her Majesty’s life and service.
Following this all teams have agreed to proceed with this weekend’s fixtures and our games against local rivals the MK Lightning will go ahead as scheduled.
MK Lightning vs Peterborough Phantoms – Faceoff 7PM – Planet Ice MK
Peterborough Phantoms vs MK Lightning – Faceoff 5:30PM – Planet Ice Peterborough
As a mark of respect at all games this weekend we will ask those who are able, to stand while we observe two minutes’ silence followed by the playing of the National Anthem.
There will be no on-ice presentations at any of this weekend’s games.
Further information will be released with regards to next weekend’s fixtures in due course.
