Hockey Canada Withdraws From Spengler Cup

The world is still in a state of confusion dealing with Covid-19 and now the new variant that is hitting various areas of the globe which shows how the world is in such a sad state.

True it’s your choice, but like it or not the outcome we (you) are leaving for future generations of the world is in your hands.

With so many events again being canceled in BC and around the world are we really surprised that sporting events are being put on hold?

Like it or not those in charge of various leagues, teams and organizations are being faced with the daunting task of pondering what to do and how to move forward.

Do we or don’t we is probably one of the hardest decisions all organizations face and like it or not they are doing their best to keep today’s youth safe and it’s not easy!!

Locally in the lower mainland tournaments, group events are or rather have been canceled at  least until the end of January 2022, and after that simply put “it’s a crap shoot” for anyone.

I received the following from Hockey Canada and wanted to share it with everyone as to how the recent variant has a hold on the world.

Simply put this new variant has put everyone in the “Sin-Bin” and it’s not for a minor but rather a MAJOR INFRACTIONS

You make the call!!


The record 16 time Spengler Cup winners have been invited every year since 1984 and have only failed to reach the final twice.

Enjoy the read:

The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada from Tom Renney, chief executive officer, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer, on the 2021 Spengler Cup:

“After careful consideration and following discussion with our chief medical officer about the ever-changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hockey Canada has made the difficult decision to withdraw from the 2021 Spengler Cup in Davos, Switzerland.

We have a long-standing tradition of participating in the Spengler Cup, and it is disappointing that we are unable to attend the prestigious event this year. However, we strongly believe this is the right decision to maintain the health and safety of our players, coaches and support staff that were set to represent Canada.

Hockey Canada looks forward to continuing our relationship with the Spengler Cup organizing committee and participating in the event for years to come.”
