With the Canadian Hockey League season’s status up in the air due to coronavirus worries, concerns have been brought up about the pending status of the 2020 Memorial Cup set to be hosted in Kelowna in May.
On March 12, the CHL pressed pause on the remaining games of the three leagues, including all Kelowna Rockets games. The CHL and partners said that they remain hopeful the Memorial Cup will happen with a statement on Friday.
“At this time it remains our hope that the event will continue as scheduled,” reads a release from the CHL.
“However more information will be shared as details around the balance of the 2019-20 season are determined as we work through these unprecedented circumstances.”
