The Avalon East Se­nior Hockey League has fi­nal­ized its sched­ule for the up­com­ing sea­son.

Re­leased via so­cial me­dia, the reg­u­lar sea­son sched­ule fea­tures 60 games for its five teams. Here’s what it means for the league’s lat­est en­try, the CeeBee Stars. The CeeBees get 24 games in their re­turn to the Avalon East league.

The team last played in the league in 2011. It’s bro­ken up into 12 away games and 12 home games. In­ter­est­ingly, only 11 of those games will be played at the S.W. Moores Me­mo­rial Sta­dium in Har­bour Grace. The other sees the team mov­ing up the bay to the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts, for Fri­day night game pre­sum­ably be­cause their reg­u­lar Satur­day night slot in Har­bour Grace slot­ted was al­ready filled. They’ll play the other four teams — St. John’s, South­ern Shore, Bell Is­land and North­east — six times apiece.

The CeeBees will get its sea­son started in league’s opener when they travel to the Jack Byrne Arena in Tor­bay to meet North­east Ea­gles on Oct. 23.

The team’s home opener will fol­low on Oct. 24 as the team reignites its heated ri­valry with the South­ern Shore Break­ers at the sta­dium in Har­bour Grace. Puck drop is sched­uled for 7:30 p.m.

The next key date on the sched­ule is a vis­i­tor’s game. On Nov. 15, the CeeBees are lined up to meet the South­ern Shore on a Sun­day af­ter­noon in Mobile. The afore­men­tioned Bay Arena game is sched­uled for Nov. 20 when Bell Is­land will be in town.

The team’s last game be­fore the Christ­mas break will be Dec. 19 in Har­bour Grace. The Bell Is­land Blues come to town for the game. That will also mark the end of the sea­son se­ries be­tween the two teams. The CeeBees re­turn from break on Jan. 8 in Tor­bay. They’ll con­clude their reg­u­lar sea­son home games by wel­com­ing the St. John’s Cap­i­tals to the S.W. Moores Me­mo­rial Sta­dium on Jan. 23. How­ever, they’ll end the sea­son on the road against the South­ern Shore.
