LEAMINGTON, ONTARIO – The Leamington Flyers will drop the puck for the first time as members of the Ontario Junior Hockey League on September 7th, 2023, at the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre.
The OJHL has released their 2023-24 schedule, with each team scheduled for 56 games from September 7th until March 8th.
The Leamington Flyers will keep their coveted Thursday night home nights, with puck drops at 7:10pm.
Opening night will feature a banner raising ceremony for the 2023 Sutherland Cup Championship and welcomes the Buffalo Jr. Sabres, who return to the OJHL after a three-year absence.
“Releasing the schedule is always an exciting time, especially this year,” Flyers general manager, Justin Solcz admits. “We are very fortunate to have a highly manageable schedule that aligns perfectly with our players’ needs. Maintaining our Thursday night home games and typically playing only one road game on the weekend, our players will benefit from a well-balanced schedule that prioritizes both their hockey development and academic pursuits.”
The schedule regularly features one road game a week and only posts one time with back-to-back road games, along with two midweek road games throughout the year.
Other key Flyers dates:
Leamington will play three Sunday regular season games, with puck drop at 5:10pm.
November 19th vs Caledon
December 10th vs Brantford
January 21st vs Caledon

The OJHL’s Governors’ Showcase will take place in Buffalo, New York, from September 26th-28th at the LECOM HarborCenter, the official practice facility of the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres.
