ECHL Postpones Season
The ECHL has decided to postpone their season until the beginning of December. The league was supposed to begin play on October 16th, 2020 before the board made the decision to postpone. So what is the ECHL? The ECHL is a mid-level professional hockey league that our Jacksonville Icemen are apart of. The reasoning the league gave for postponing their season was “for the safety of our Players, Employees and Fans.” With the Coronavirus not seeming to be going anywhere anytime soon, and their league pretty much dependent on sponsors/ fan involvement I think this is the right decision.
The Jacksonville Icemen season will not be shortened, and will still have approximately 36 home games. As a huge Icemen fan I was looking forward to their season beginning and honestly did not think that their season would be delayed, but I understand and will patiently wait until December 4th, 2020.
