Posted: Mar 12, 2020

ALBANY, NY: ECAC Hockey announced today it has cancelled the remainder of the 2020 Men’s Ice Hockey Championship Tournament. Quarterfinal games scheduled at Quinnipiac and RPI for March 13-15 will not be played, nor will the semifinal and championship games scheduled for March 20 and 21 in Lake Placid.

This decision has been made in accordance with recommendations from public health and medical professionals to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“The No. 1 priority of ECAC Hockey and its member institutions has always been and shall continue to be the health, safety and well-being of the student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans”, said ECAC Hockey Commissioner Steve Hagwell. “We are deeply disappointed our programs will not have the opportunity to compete for a league championship; however, ceasing championship competition is in the best interest of everyone”.

Individuals who have already purchased tickets to the championship weekend will be refunded in full and should contact the Olympic Center Box Office at (518) 523-3330.

ECAC Hockey teams that advance to the NCAA tournament will have the ability to compete in accordance with their institutional policies.
