The Ontario Hockey League announced on Tuesday that the Sudbury Wolves have suspended all team activities as a result of 12 players testing positive for COVID-19. All players affected are currently asymptomatic or exhibiting mild symptoms.
The Ontario Hockey League had previously incorporated specific COVID-19 protocols including mandatory vaccination for all members of the OHL Community including players, staff, officials and billets.
“The OHL is working in consultation with the League’s independent Chief Medical Officer while the Wolves continue to follow the guidance of Public Health Sudbury & Districts,” the league said in a statement.
The outbreak has resulted in at least three games involving the Sudbury Wolves being postponed, and two of them involve the Barrie Colts.
Friday, Dec. 3 – Barrie Colts at Sudbury Wolves
Saturday, Dec. 4 – Sudbury Wolves at Barrie Colts
Sudbury’s game in Sault Ste. Marie on Wednesday night has also been postponed.
