Shortly after the WCHA canceled the remainder of their season due to concerns around the spread of the coronavirus, Atlantic Hockey has followed suit. The rest of the playoffs have been canceled.
You can read the entire press release below.
Atlantic Hockey, in a joint decision made by the Commissioner and the Board of Directors, will be cancelling the remainder of the 2020 Atlantic Hockey Tournament, effective immediately.
The situation around COVID-19 has been rapidly changing and evolving over the last 24 hours and Atlantic Hockey feels that, for the safety of our student-athletes, coaches, and fans, the best decision we can make is to cancel the remainder of the 2020 Atlantic Hockey Tournament.
We are disappointed that this decision needed to be made, however, the health and safety of all involved is our top priority.
If the NCAA moves forward with the national tournament, AIC, as our regular season champion and highest remaining tournament seed, will be the Atlantic Hockey representative.
