The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League decided on Wednesday that the playoffs will go ahead.

A full schedule of the playoffs will be provided later on Wednesday. Game 1 is expected to go on Saturday in Nipawin.

TSN's Farhan Lalji notes that the vote to go on with the postseason was unanimous among the 12 community-owned teams in the league will be represented by 12 appointed governors.

The SJHL playoffs were halted after the tragic accident involving the Humboldt Broncos on Friday.

Humboldt trailed the Nipawin Hawks 3-1 in their best-of-seven semifinal series, with the winner scheduled to meet the Estevan Bruins in the SJHL final.

The Broncos were travelling to Nipawin for Game 5 of the series when the accident occurred.
