The world women’s hockey championship has been cancelled due to concerns over COVID-19.
The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) made the decision this past Saturday to cancel the event.
It was scheduled for March 31 to April 10 and it was going to be held in Halifax and Truro, Nova Scotia.
The cancellation of this event is yet another blow for top female hockey players in the world.
The Canadian Women’s Hockey League collapsed last year and November’s Four Nations Cup in Sweden was called off due to disputes between the Swedish Federation and the national women’s team.
The IIHF council will meet again to discuss what to discuss with events scheduled in April.
