HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WEHT) – The Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) has decided to cancel the rest of the 2019-2020 season.
The SPHL Board of Governors voted unanimously to cancel the remainder of the season and playoffs Sunday afternoon.
SPHL Commisioner Doug Price explained in a press release.
“It was a decision for our players, coaches and game officials. It was a decision for our fans, team staff and arena personnel. What we are all facing right now is bigger than the SPHL, bigger than hockey and bigger than sports.”
