BREAKING: NHL postpones remainder of season due to Cononavirus scare

  

The NHL decided, today, to postpone games for the near future due to the outbreak of COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus) in the NBA and to avoid putting league players or employees in danger of contracting or spreading the virus.

This announcement follows suit with the NBA swift action last night as well as a growing number of overseas leagues, college tournaments, and north american major junior leagues (including the USHL). The AHL and ECHL are expected to follow similar protocal, as well. The verbiage used by most of the leagues is hiatus, postponed, or suspended (rather than cancelled) which leaves opportunities to resume operations when the virus has been contained to a more safe level for the public.

Several universities and school have also gone to remote or virtual learning models (where applicable) to try and hopefully avoid the rapid spread of the virus through the student body.

More details will be added as they are released.
