PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Due to recent updates regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), USA Hockey Arena will be closed tonight beginning at 5:00 p.m. ET and remain closed until regularly scheduled activities on Sunday, March 15.

The Michigan High School Athletic Association ice hockey semifinals and finals that were scheduled to take place at USA Hockey Arena this weekend have been suspended.

During the lockdown, the entire building will be deep cleaned and additional sanitation stations will be installed, among other increased safety precautions.

In addition, the 2020 IIHF Under-18 Men's World Championship, scheduled to be played in Plymouth and Ann Arbor in April, will no longer take place. The United States' travel policy ban will not allow visiting European teams to enter the country in a necessary timeframe for the event.

The USHL announced today its decision to suspend game play until further notice. The decision was unanimously made by the USHL Board of Directors with the best interest of athletes, staff, officials and fans in mind. USA Hockey Arena is home to USA Hockey's National Team Development Program, a club member of the USHL.

Policies regarding previously purchased tickets to any of these events will be confirmed next week. Fans with questions on any events may contact the USA Hockey Arena office at 734-453-6400. USA Hockey Arena will continue to provide updates on the situation as they become available.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
