Zone change means Langley players to join T-Birds, not Hawks

A zone boundary change means Langley Minor Hockey Association players heading to the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League will soar with the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds instead of the Valley West Hawks.

The move was announced on May 8 for the 2014/15 season.

"These changes were made to enhance the opportunities for more elite players to compete in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League," said MML managing director Joe Downing.

Previously, LMHA players were in the same zone as those from Surrey, White Rock and Cloverdale. But now, they will join players from Abbotsford, Mission, Aldergrove and Chilliwack.

The MML is broken into 11 geographical zones from across the province with teams playing a 40-game regular season schedule.

The midget level is for players between the ages of 15 and 17.
