    I found this interesting:
    Link: Canada West cancels multiple conference competitions, defers on others

    Here's where things stand, as far as I can tell:

    - NHL intends to start at some point, using TV revenue to pay for everything.

    - AHL and other minor pro are question marks.

    - WHL plan on a January start. Link: Western Hockey League announces plan to begin next regular season Jan. 8

    - MJHL has already started. Link: MJHL | Official League Site

    - SJHL is waiting 2 weeks at a time, but still has nothing firm. Link: SJHL still without season start date

    - AJHL teams are playing exhibition games, but the season is TBD. Link: AJHL to play exhibition games, regular season remains on province hold

    - BCJHL has "extended training camp" games until the end of October. Nothing scheduled beyond that. Link: BCHL League Site

    - The ACAC continues to "explore options". They have also withdrawn from national events in other sports and teams can withdraw any time without penalty. Link: ACAC Will Continue to Explore Sport Delivery Opportunities for Winter 2021

    - BCIHL has no update since June. Link: BC Intercollegiate Hockey League (Design, Hosting, Online Registration & Administration tools by esportsdesk.com)

    Maybe we'll see an eclectic blend of local scheduling. Back in the day, Thunder Bay had a local 4-team league with a junior, senior, intermediate, and university team under one umbrella.

    My inference is that local play is probable, travelling is improbable. Alberta and BC could easily play locally. Even the Manitoba Bisons could play the Moose, Ice, Wheat Kings, or even the MJHL All-Stars. Hopefully we'll see something!
