Following Hockey Canada’s decision to cancel all Hockey Canada- sanctioned activities due to concerns over COVID-19, Hockey Manitoba has canceled all sanctioned games and programs effective Friday, March 13, 2020. Below is the official statement from Hockey Canada:
“After much consultation with the Hockey Canada membership, our chief medical officer and public health officials, the Hockey Canada Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities, including our national championships, until further notice, effective Friday, March 13, 2020.
We recognize the tremendous effort that has been put forth all year by individuals across the country as they participate in Canada’s game. Although it is difficult to process the hockey season ending abruptly, we feel this is the best course of action in order to do our part in keeping our country safe.”
