Alberta Canada | USA Rivalry Series Games Cancelled

The final two games of the Rivalry Series, originally scheduled for Jan. 3 and Jan. 6 in Edmonton and Red Deer respectively, have been cancelled due to players and staff in COVID-19 protocol.

“The risk associated with playing the final two Rivalry Series games with less than one month before our teams are set to compete in the 2022 Olympics is too high to finish our series with the United States,” said Gina Kingsbury, director of hockey operations with Hockey Canada. “Changing our schedule and not being able to play the United States is always difficult, as our players and staff want to play against international competition and put on a great show for hockey fans. Unfortunately, we need do what is right for our athletes from a health perspective and for our team preparation in order to ensure everyone remains healthy and eligible for Beijing.”

Ticket holders will be refunded in January 2022.
