By @MichaelCaples –

The 2019-2020 campaign has officially come to a close for USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program and the Muskegon Lumberjacks, as the USHL announced Wednesday morning that the remainder of the season has been cancelled.

“This decision was not an easy one to make, but was a necessity in order to keep our athletes, staffs and fans in all 16 of our communities safe amid this international health risk,” said USHL President and Commissioner Tom Garrity in a release. “While we believe our product is the best junior hockey that fans can view, we also understand the health of our athletes, employees, fans and communities is more important during this time.”
