The Niagara University men’s hockey team will not start its season at St. Lawrence University this weekend.

St. Lawrence announced Thursday that it has canceled its two-game nonconference series Friday and Sunday against Niagara in Canton. The St. Lawrence athletic department said in a statement that the cancellation of the series is because of a change in the campus Covid-19 alert status, from green to yellow (moderate risk).

St. Lawrence has also paused its hockey activities. The athletic department said there are currently nine active Covid-19 cases in the St. Lawrence community, and all athletic practices and competition have been suspended until Nov. 30.



The Purple Eagles are now scheduled to open the season Nov. 27 at Rochester Institute of Technology with a two-game, home-and-home series, pending the return of RIT’s season. RIT announced Nov. 19 that it would not field competition in winter sports because of the Covid-19 pandemic, but is seeking to reinstate its men’s and women’s hockey programs this season.

RIT, through the Atlantic Hockey Association, has submitted its return-to-play safety plans to New York state for approval to resume its season.

If Niagara does not play RIT, its season would be scheduled to begin Dec. 9 against Clarkson at Dwyer Arena in Lewiston.

Thanks for update efkay. Normalcy still remains a distant memory. I flew to Boston last weekend and felt like was on Mars Hotel in transit. So bizarre.

LOCKDOWNS OR PERSONAL LIBERTIES?

Maybe it's time to shut this all down ---I and many others share no common values with the pols in NYS, the MAAC or with most of schools in the Northeast. Check out Ensor 's twitter page---it makes me sick.

What's the secrecy with the postponement from Niagara. RIT has replaced the games with games against Clarkson this weekend so it had to be Niagara which has the positive cases. Covid-19 protocol means at least one of the teams had problems but now we know it is with Niagara.
