The sports world keeps taking hits on the coronavirus front. It was announced on Thursday that the league has decided to suspend all hockey operations indefinitely until the situation can be further examined.

The announcement comes as a little bit of a surprise, as the NHL had decided just last night to proceed with games. The league made the official announcement after the NBA’s announcement to suspend operations. Early this morning, the league advised teams to hold off on practices until a decision could be reached.

And reach a decision they did, as the NHL immediately suspended games. They join the NBA, NHL, MLS, and MLB as the major sports have all decided to hold off until they can figure more out.
