The Canadian Hockey League which includes the Quebec Major Hockey, Western Hockey League and the Ontario Hockey League have announced the cancellation of the remainder of the 2020 seasons including their respective league playoffs and the Memorial Cup.
The 2020 edition of the Memorial Cup was set to take place at the end of May in Kelowna, BC.
The CHL said in a statement that: “We have continued to monitor the latest updates and advice from all public health agencies and medical experts, and worked tirelessly to determine a scenario by which the balance of our season could be played. Unfortunately, given the troubling state of our global climate and public welfare, there is still too much risk and uncertainty to move forward in good conscience“
Its the first time since it was established in 1919 that the Memorial Cup will not be handed out.
