YORKTON, Sask. - The Ted Knight Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame (SHHOF) along with this year’s host committee for the Induction Dinner in Yorkton have made the decision to once again postpone the event which was scheduled for July 24th, 2021 at the Yorkton Curling Rink.
This is the second postponement announcement for the dinner that was originally set to take place in the summer of 2020.

Those selected will carry forward along with the host community of Yorkton for the 2022 event. The date that has been selected for the Ted Knight Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Dinner presented by SaskTel is July 22, 2022.
