U Sports Cancels Fall Sports, Hockey Exhibitions Likely Canceled

U Sports, the governing body of college sports in Canada, announced this week that it was canceling all of its fall championships. 

As part of the announcement, men’s and women’s hockey, which like the NCAA typically begins play in the fall and extends into the winter, will not begin before Jan. 1, 2021. That means October exhibition games regularly scheduled against NCAA programs will not happen this year. Merrimack was scheduled to host St. Francis Xavier on Oct. 2.

While the announcement was not specific to exhibition games, it’s likely that U Sport programs will not be available to play NCAA programs this fall.

U Sports said that a decision on the hockey season would be made by Oct. 8.
