Bulldogs host Blazers in Quiet Game

The Antigonish Bulldogs are hosting a Quiet Game against the Sackville Blazers in the Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League.

One of the organizers says the goal is to raise awareness about sensory issues and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).

Scott MacInnis says a number of accommodations will be made to create a comfortable environment for people with SPD.

MacInnis told The Hawk Morning Show they want to keep things as quiet as possible.

"The buzzer at the end of the game, at the end of the period and everything, that will be eliminated- we will not be announcing (goals or) penalties, they will be just shown on the board," he said. "There will be minimal announcing, with the only announcing before the game with the veterans."

MacInnis says fans are asked to not applaud, yell, or make a lot of noise.

He says you'll be given black signs to write on instead of cheering, and there will be a quiet room available if the main arena is too overwhelming.

Puck drop at the Antigonish Arena is 7:30 p.m.

The Bulldogs (3-7-2), losers of four straight and six of their last seven, are fourth in the five-team Sid Rowe Division with eight points, four points behind the Strait Pirates for third, and six points ahead of last-place Cumberland Co.; the Blazers (6-7-0) are fifth in the six-team Fred Fox Division with 12 points.

It's the first game of the season between the teams.
