Effective Friday, March 13:
all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activity for the 2019-20 season is cancelled.
The Branch Executive Directors and Presidents were advised tonight that as a result of the impact of COVID-19 and its spread across the country and around the world, Hockey Canada's Board of Directors has voted to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activity for the duration of the 2019-20 season effective Friday, March 13.
This decision impacts all of Minor, Junior and Senior hockey, Hockey Canada Accredited Schools and University Hockey - for further clarity, Provincial and Atlantic Championships at every level will not be held. High Performance activities are also cancelled at this time.
This decision is unprecedented, but it does not get made lightly - this decision was made in clear focus for the safety of the members across the country.
We recognize that there are going to be many questions and a lot of work arising out of this decision; however, we ask for your patience as we work diligently in organizing and resolving those questions. We will continue working with Hockey Canada and medical experts in monitoring the situation and continuing to provide you information where necessary.
If you have any pressing questions or concerns at this time, please contact our office.
Calgary, Alberta - The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada from Tom Renney, chief executive officer, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer, on the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
"Without question, this an unprecedented period of difficulty for the sports world. The health and safety of all participants in sport, including players, coaches, staff, officials, fans, family, volunteers and the general public, is of the utmost importance to 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."

Cornwall, PE: North River Minor Hockey Association was saddened to hear about the devastating fire in December where Tyne Valley's community sports centre was declared a total loss. The loss is more than just an ice surface, but a place where community can come together and share memories.
As a result, NRMHA is fully supportive of Tyne Valley's bid for Kraft Hockeyville, in efforts of building a new rink with the potential prize money. The association is willing to help Tyne Valley's efforts in any way possible and welcome the invitation to assist.
President of NRMHA, Caley MacDonald, said: "We understand the importance of local sports centres and their impact on a community. North River minor hockey is glad to provide support in any means necessary to ensure Tyne Valley is successful with their quest for Kraft Hockeyville."
When a community on Prince Edward Island is in need, other communities must step up to help where they can. It is the Island way of doing things and NRMHA understands that.
Tyne Valley has several ways that you can support, including using the hashtag #Rally4TheValley. There is a benefit hockey game being played on February 9th at 4:00PM which includes former NHLer Ray Bourque, being held at the Credit Union Place in Summerside. Additionally, there is an online auction currently ongoing raising funds for the new rink. It can be found at rally4thevalleyauction.ca.
For further information, please contact NRMHA Vice-President Sam MacPhail at email@example.com.
The selection process for the 2019-20 Provincial Championships has been completed. Championship titles will be sought after in arenas across the province this coming March.
"Best of luck to all teams and hosts during this year's provincial championships. Everyone has worked hard to get here and we look forward to crowning our provincial champions," said Robert MacMillan, Minor Council Chair.
Championship game time schedules will be made available on the Hockey PEI Website as regular seasons come to a close.
Bantam and Midget AAA (male/female) conduct a playoff elimination format.
Are you a student looking for Volunteer hours for the Community Bursary or Duke of Edinburgh? We can schedule around your availability.
NRMHA is looking for some volunteers to help out with some of our younger teams. All hours will be tracked and submitted to the appropriate program on behalf of NRMHA.
If you're interested - please email firstname.lastname@example.org by December 18th, 2019.
Please see a memo that is being sent to all teams, members, and Associations from Hockey PEI.
Please take a moment to review.
Please make sure this is communicated to all team members.
Hockey PEI has recently been made aware of a number of situations regarding verbal and physical taunts, insults, and generally inappropriate language and behavior, some of which is based on discriminatory grounds.
In light of what is occurring in the great game of hockey worldwide, we must remind you that there can be no tolerance in this sport for behavior that is ignorant, hateful or discriminatory. We urge you as Hockey PEI members and community leaders to set an example, as well as educate one another on the importance of respecting the game, including the respect of teammates, opponents and officials.
As a reminder, Hockey Canada Rule 9.2(f) reads as follows:
Officials have been instructed to ensure that these penalties are being called on the ice with the appropriate progression of penalties applied.
Hockey PEI considers these matters incredibly serious. If Hockey PEI members are found to have violated this rule or valid complaints are submitted, disciplinary action may be taken by the Hockey PEI Discipline and Ethics Committee against any member. Disrespect of this magnitude will not be tolerated.
We ask that you circulate this information to your teams/members.
President, Hockey PEI

Hockey players in North River have even more access to the sport they love as New York Rangers Defenceman and Cornwall native Adam McQuaid has donated twenty-five sets of brand new hockey gear to the organization. This "All Can Play Fund" removes financial strain from any children and their parents who may not otherwise been able to play without the gear.
To receive a set, all parents have to do is contact NRMHA and fill out a form as it is on a needs basis. Sets will also be given to new hockey players who do not want to fully invest in a set of gear until they are committed to playing. The gear does not include a pair of skates or a helmet, so those must be provided by the player beforehand. The gear is then to be returned at the end of the season.
Adam McQuaid played all of his minor hockey years with North River Minor Hockey Association, including two years with the Cornwall Thunder Major Midget AAA team, prior to moving to Sudbury, Ontario to play Major Junior with the Sudbury Wolves of the OHL. As for the reason for his donation, McQuaid wanted to create a way for children to enjoy hockey and remove any barriers. He wanted to give back to his community and to the association that he grew up playing in.
The NRMHA Board are thrilled with this donation and would like to express gratitude to Adam for his continuous support of the organization.
To apply, simply visit www.northriverflames.ca. For more information on the program, please contact President of North River Minor Hockey Association, Caley MacDonald, at (902) 218-2945
