A new statement issued by Hockey Canada acknowledges that the game will look quite different, and the return to play plan will happen at different speeds and at different times across the country.

“After ongoing discussions with the board of directors, our chief medical officer, the 13 Members and public health authorities across the country, it has been determined that the best approach for a return to hockey in Canada is to allow each Member the opportunity to work with authorities in their respective regions to determine when it is safe to return to the ice in areas that fall under their jurisdiction. We expect the timing of each Member’s return to hockey will be different, but will be based on the advice of their government and public health authority.”

We will update as soon as possible how this development affects us in the SJAMHA.
