Two Players on Canada’s National Junior Team have Tested Positive for COVID

“Hockey Canada confirmed earlier today that two players at Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek 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.”

Shit is not looking good in Red Deer. Hockey Canada has announced that 2 of their players have tested positive for COVID-19 up at their World Junior Training Camp in Red Deer, Alberta. The camp was set to have another scrimmage today but that was called off in light of this news. We have no idea which players it is or if this has passed to anyone else but it definitely throws a wrench in things. I hope they’re able to control this and everyone comes out okay but we’ll just have to wait and see.
