The subject of the Herder final caused some controversy late last year after officials with the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts lobbied, unsuccessfully, to have the Herder final played at the Joe Byrne Memorial Arena in Grand Falls-Windsor should the Cataracts make it that far.
The move was shut down by HNL and the schedule stands as is.
The Newfoundland Senior Hockey League will be starting its semifinal series' this weekend with the Clarenville Caribous hosting the Conception Bay North CeeBee Stars Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. at the Clarenville Event Centre.
