Men’s hockey event cancelled

Health concerns and travel bans closing international borders stemming from the new coronavirus pandemic left the International Ice Hockey Federation with no choice but to cancel the men’s world hockey championships.

The decision to cancel the 16-team tournament to be held in Switzerland in May was formally announced Saturday and essentially wipes out the IIHF’s entire spring calendar of world championship of events.

The governing body previously canceled the women’s world hockey championships set to be held in Canada and the men’s Under-18 Championship to be played in Michigan next month.
