Sweden Still in Shutdown
Posted January 12th, 2021
The country’s hockey season has been on pause for more than two months.
Youth hockey in Sweden has been significantly modified since mid-November, with restrictions to on-ice practices, and game action completely on pause for all teams 2005-born and below. Since then, further limitations have been placed on the Swedish Ice Hockey Federation, preventing teams from conducting any on or off-ice workouts in large groups. Additionally, last week, the J20, J18 and J16 leagues canceled the Swedish National Championships and it’s possible that action may not resume until as late as August.
