Clippers Debut New Jersey, Hit Pause on Season

This season, Clipper Ice Sports in Niverville has hit the ice with its players showing off new jerseys—and along with them, a brand-new logo.

“In mid-2019, the executive started discussing new jerseys for the club,” says Ashley Chamberlain, spokesperson for the board. “As we started to discuss replacing our jerseys, we thought maybe it was also time to update our logo. We looked at multiple options, and in the end it was a tough choice to make!”

Chamberlain says they sent out a poll out to their membership this past May and the membership chose the final design.

“It was created for us by Silver Eye, a Steinbach-based company,” she says. “CIS then purchased the logo design and ordered our jerseys from Pembina Source for Sports, a Winnipeg business which has been our apparel partner for a couple of years now and is owned by Niverville neighbour Kyle Johanson.”

Travis Mason, the organizer’s hockey coordinator, did most of the legwork in partnering with Silver Eye and with Pembina Source for Sports in terms of settling on the final design.

Games Cancelled, Arenas Closed

Unfortunately, it’s not all good news for the Clippers. Due to our region going to code red pandemic restrictions on November 2, the Eastman Minor Hockey Association (EMHA) has advised that the league roll back its hockey operations.

Effective immediately, all league and exhibition games have been cancelled. The Niverville and Ste. Agathe arenas, both of which are in the Winnipeg metropolitan region and thus are now at code red, will be closed for a minimum of two weeks.

“The situation is being monitored closely by CIS and our governing bodies,” says Chamberlain. “When there is an update regarding return to play for our area, the information will be communicated immediately. This is a challenging time and this news is disappointing. However, it is hoped to be short-term.”
