NHL pauses season due to concerns about the coronavirus outbreak | CBS Sports HQ

The NHL announced in a statement Thursday that the regular season is suspended amid concerns over the coronavirus outbreak.

“In light of ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus, and after consulting with medical experts and convening a conference call of the Board of Governors, the National Hockey League is announcing today that it will pause the 2019‑20 season beginning with tonight’s games,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said.

Bettman added that the league will try to resume games “as soon as it is appropriate and prudent” and hopes that the pause will not affect the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
