The St. Lawrence University men’s hockey season opener at Colgate University slated for Sunday has been canceled because of COVID-19 concerns.
“To ensure the health and safety of St. Lawrence’s players, team personnel and the entire St. Lawrence community, the team is following all county, state and University guidelines regarding COVID-19 protocols,” the athletic department stated in a press release.
St. Lawrence will look to start its season with a home game at 4 p.m. on Dec. 31 in its ECAC Hockey opener against Quinnipiac. No fans will be allowed into Appleton Arena, but games will be streamed on ESPN-plus for United States viewers and Stretch Internet for international viewers.
The Saints have had previous nonconference games against Clarkson University this season canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
St. Lawrence is scheduled to play five ECAC Hockey games against Clarkson this season, beginning Jan. 15 at Clarkson.
