The 2020 Memorial Cup and OHL playoffs have been officially cancelled.

In a statement released Monday night, the CHL and OHL, "determined that extreme precautions must be taken in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic."

The statement goes on to say, "there is still too much risk and uncertainty to move forward in good conscience."

OHL Commissioner David Branch says players will get back on the ice at the appropriate time and when it is safe to do so.

Last week, the OHL announced it was cancelling the regular season.
