While the Western Hockey League has “paused” the season until further notice, there are few details about what this means for the Victoria Royals going forward.
Cameron Hope, president and general manager of the Royals, addressed the concerns in a brief press conference outside the Royals’ dressing room on Thursday afternoon. According to Hope there are no players or staff within the WHL that have any kind of infection, but he says the move to pause the season is a smart one.
“Were in the business of gathering people together and being in close quarters and we’ve dealt with infections and mumps and those sorts of things before in the past and all the protocols are in place to minimize this sort of a thing,” he said. “But when it gets to be a global situation, everybody needs to accept their role.”
