TEAM CANADA INTRASQUAD GAME CANCELLED DUE TO MULTIPLE POSITIVE COVID-19 TESTS

The Red-White game that was scheduled to be played by Team Canada today has been postponed due to two players testing positive for COVID-19 earlier in the day.

Scott Salmond, who is the senior vice-president of national teams, released the following statement:

“Hockey Canada confirmed earlier today that two players at Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Check Selection Camp have tested positive for COVID-19, and have been placed in quarantine at the team hotel in Red Deer.

Upon learning of the positive test this morning, the decision was made to postpone the Red-White game scheduled for this morning at the Westerner Park Centrium, and to suspend all camp activities for today. As per Hockey Canada’s safety protocols, all players, coaches, and staff members took mandatory COVID-19 tests upon arrival at camp and have continued to be tested regularly throughout the past ten days. For precautionary reasons, we will also ensure that all players and team personnel go through an additional test before resuming camp activities. The appropriate local and provincial health authorities have been made aware of the situation, and we will continue to work closely with Alberta Health Services. We will have no further comment at this time.”



This game was supposed to be one of many skates Team Canada has taken as the coaches look to select their final roster for the upcoming 2021 World Junior Tournament, which is set to begin on December 25. Team Canada will be looking to repeat after defeating Team Russia in the gold medal game at the 2020 tournament. The tournament is set to be played in both Red Deer and Edmonton Alberta.
