VIASPORT has implemented a 2 week shut down at CANLAN along side ASHL/ICE604.
We must do our part in keeping the cases low while keeping others including ourselves safe. It was a privilege to play hockey during this time and who knows what will happen in the near future.
The next 2 weeks schedule is suspended and when it returns in Nov 21st. That's right when playoffs begin, so that's another portion we're going to have to figure out. There is a chance that if the cases keep surging this season might come to a halt, but we'll wait and see.
Stay safe out there everyone from ICE604/ASHL & CANLAN.
Alex Trebek loved the NHL, and the feeling was mutual. Hockey lost a great friend with the death of Trebek, the legendary host of the game show "Jeopardy!" who died Sunday of pancreatic cancer. He was 80.
Times are tense in the United States of America.
It's election day and Americans are lining up at polling stations to cast their vote for who they want to be President for the next four years. A Presidential election is always an uneasy time, but the current election has been particularly divisive.
That's why, when former-Canuck Todd Bertuzzi made his regular appearance on Sportsnet 650's morning show, the Starting Lineup, hosts James Cybulski and Perry Solkowski asked Bertuzzi about his experience of the current situation as a Canadian living in the U.S.
"I tell you, it's interesting times, especially for a Canadian living here," said Bertuzzi. "I've been here for, I don't know, about 15 years, 20 years total, and I've never seen…
Edmonton sports legend Joey Moss has died at the age of 57.

“We were all lucky enough to be part of his life for a lot of years,” Gretzky said in a statement on behalf of all the players who got to know Moss.
“His love for life always brought a smile to anyone who met him. Whether it was a coffee before practice or a big hug after a great win or a tough loss, he would put life in perspective.

NFL legend Gale Sayers has died at the age of 77.
Widely regarded as one of the greatest running backs to ever carry a football, the former Chicago Bear was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.
"The NFL family lost a true friend today with the passing of Gale Sayers.

A German football team lost 37-0 to their local rivals after fielding only seven players who socially distanced throughout the match.
Ripdorf fielded the minimum number of players on Sunday because their opponents SV Holdenstedt II came into contact in a previous game with someone who tested positive for Covid-19.
Their team tested negative but Ripdorf said the conditions were not safe.
If Ripdorf had not played, they would have faced a €200 (£182) fine.
They had asked for the match - in the 11th tier of German football - to be postponed but the local association refused.
Ripdorf said they did not feel safe as at the time of the game 14 days had not yet passed since Holdenstedt players had come into contact with the person who tested positive.
Holdenstedt's first team did not play in the match and the club fielded their second team.
At the beginning of the match, one of Ripdorf's players stepped onto the pitch, passed the ball to an opponent and the team then walked to the sidelines.
Ripdorf co-chair Patrick Ristow told ESPN: "The Holdenstedt players did not understand. But we did not want to risk anything"
He added of his players: "They did not go into direct duels and observed the social distancing rules, keeping two metres between them and Holdenstedt players"
Holdenstedt did not hold back, scoring a goal every two or three minutes.
"There was no reason not to play this game," Holdenstedt coach Florian Schierwater said.
The Big Ten Conference will play football this fall after all. On Wednesday, the conference reversed its postponement decision made last month, saying play would start the weekend of Oct. 23 and 24.
The Big Ten decision came after months of pressure from coaches, parents, players, politicians, and even the President of the United States, who called on the conference to reopen both on Twitter and at rallies.
President Donald Trump welcomed the news in a tweet Wednesday morning, saying, "Great News: BIG TEN FOOTBALL IS BACK. All teams to participate. Thank you to the players, coaches, parents, and all school representatives. Have a FANTASTIC SEASON! It is my great honor to have helped!!!"
The conference will require student-athletes, coaches, trainers and other individuals that are on the field for all practices and games to undergo daily antigen testing. Test results must be completed and recorded prior to each practice or game. Student-athletes who test positive for the coronavirus through point of contact (POC) daily testing would require a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test to confirm the result of the POC test.
"Everyone associated with the Big Ten should be very proud of the groundbreaking steps that are now being taken to better protect the health and safety of the student-athletes and surrounding communities," said Dr. Jim Borchers, head team physician at The Ohio State University, in the announcement.
On the brink of elimination heading into Tuesday night’s Game 5 against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Barry Trotz’s club managed to earn the win to keep the Conference Final match-up going, cutting the Bolts’ series lead to 3-2.

As Quebec Major Junior Hockey League players gear for a season they hope will change their lives, a goal-scoring 17-year-old New Brunswicker decided not to wait for the puck to drop before changing his.
Yanic Duplessis, an elite-level player who was drafted by the QMJHL's Drummondville Voltigeurs in 2019, revealed he is gay earlier this week.
In the hockey world, that qualifies as significant news. One of the reasons the native of Saint-Antoine, N.B., decided to step forward is to help make such announcements unremarkable.
"It was a struggle for me, and it shouldn't be," he said in an interview with CBC's Quebec A.M., later adding "it shouldn't be a big deal."
And for Duplessis, it was. He tells of anxiety attacks at school and calling …
