CALGARY, Alta. – 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 return-to-hockey process in Canada.

 “On March 12, the decision was made to cancel all Hockey
Canada-sanctioned activities across the country. This was a difficult decision,
but one made to maintain the health and safety of all participants and the general
public amid growing concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

 Currently there are no Hockey Canada-sanctioned
activities being conducted, and we are working with our Members on their
return-to-hockey plans. After ongoing discussions with the board of directors,
our chief medical officer, the 13 Members and public health authorities across
the country, it has been determined that the best approach for a return to
hockey in Canada is to allow each Member the opportunity to work with authorities
in their respective regions to determine when it is safe to return to the ice
in areas that fall under their jurisdiction. We expect the timing of each
Member’s return to hockey will be different, but will be based on the advice of
their government and public health authority.

 It is imperative to note that we are not ready to
return to the game across the country. As we have seen in respect to flattening
the curve, the impact of the pandemic varies from region to region. Permitting
our Members the opportunity to decide on an appropriate return-to-hockey
timeline will allow them to work directly with public health authorities to
determine when it is safe to return while also implementing specific safety
measures and rules within their associations and leagues.

 Hockey Canada knows the game will look quite
different, and the return will happen at different speeds and at different
times across the country. Be assured, we continue to work on our multi-faceted
return-to-hockey plan that includes health and safety regulations,
communications and seasonal structure. As with so many people across the
country, we look forward to returning to the game when it is safe to do so, and
we will support our 13 Members as we continue to work towards getting back on the
