LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — UNLV announced the cancellation of its 2020-21 hockey season on social media Monday night, citing “continuous national hardships” amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The hockey program stressed its priorities are the health and well-being of its student-athletes, coaches, staff and fanbase.

UNLV also noted, “As it stands today, the local government determined that a safe enough path for competition could not be found for Spring of 2021.”

The program is looking forward to preparing for a fall 2021 return and is currently focusing on helping its athletes “in every way possible.”
