The Halifax Mooseheads' season is on hold until the new year.

Earlier today, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League announced a temporary pause in activities, and in addition to that, a further tightening of restrictions announced by the Nova Scotia government means the Herd will be off the ice until at least Jan. 12.

Until that date, there will be no in-person events such as festivals, special events (including receptions), sports games or tournaments, or arts and culture performances in the province.

This will affect six Mooseheads games, including home games that had been scheduled to take place at the Scotiabank Centre on Dec. 31, Jan. 4 and Jan. 9.

"Players and staffs’ safety remains our top priority," the league said in a news release. "Therefore, it is appropriate under the current circumstances to remain cautious and to extend the Holiday break."

More information on potential rescheduled dates, refunds and exchanges will be provided by the team in the coming days

The Q-league says it is updating its COVID protocols, including testing players and staff before they return to their clubs in January.
