QMJHL hopes to return to action with events in four cities next month



The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League says its 12 Quebec-based teams will resume play next month in Chicoutimi, Drummondvi­lle, Rimouski and Shawinigan during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The four markets will host Protected Environmen­t events Jan. 22-24.

Chicoutimi, Drummondvi­lle and Rimouski will then host events from Jan. 29 to Feb. 6.

Each arena will host one or two games per day with a total of 12 games being played over nine days (six per team).

The league says it hopes its six teams in Atlantic Canada can resume play as soon as Jan. 21.

All regular-season games until Jan. 21 have been postponed.

The QMJHL announced at the end of November it was suspending play from Dec. 1 to Jan. 3.
