The Canadian Hockey League, in association with its three member leagues, the Western Hockey League, Ontario Hockey League and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, has decided to cancel the 2021 Memorial Cup.
“The CHL is committed to the health and safety of our players, their families and billets, our teams, staff and officials, and the communities in which we play,” CHL president Dan McKenzie said in a press release. “That has driven all of our difficult decisions for the last year, as we have dealt with this global pandemic.
“The decision was made based on the limitations on travel, border restrictions and quarantining requirements that would make it impossible to produce league champions.”
Further decisions regarding the timing and location of the 2022 Memorial Cup will be announced at a later date.
