During the latest QMJHL update on April 12, there were a total of 24 cases in the Olympic Games, 7 cases in the Lempart area, and 2 cases in the Bryanville-Buisbriand Invincible Fleet. Although the series of most teams in Quebec will start this Friday, QMJHL announced on Monday that the series between the Olympic Games and the Invincible Fleet will start on April 28, and the Lempartners and Drummondville The series between the Voltigeurs teams will begin the day before. .
Three of the five rounds of the first round will be played in a protected environment, the same as this season. Chicoutimi, Shawinigan, Drummondville and Victoriaville will host the first round. Initially, Val-d’Or would be protected, but the public health authorities’ travel restrictions on Abitibi-Témiscamingue forced QMJHL to operate in Foreurs de Val-d’Or and Drummondville (Drummondville). ) Transferred the series between Drakkar de Baie-Comeau, and then between Rouyn-Noranda Huskies and Victoriaville Tigres.
COVID-19 has also frustrated maritime plans. QMJHL announced a few weeks ago that the Eastern Province teams will continue their regular season until May 4. However, due to the delay in reopening the Atlantic bubble, the Circuit Court ended its regular schedule last Sunday, forcing them to eliminate Halifax Mooseheads and the Cape Breton Hawks from the game.
The New Brunswick team will play 9 round-robin matches, and the winner will face the Charlottetown Islanders in the maritime district finals. It is difficult to say how the league will proceed so that these teams from different provinces can compete.
However, so far, it is important to know that this round of the tour will officially start on Tuesday.
Obviously, QMJHL does not intend to propose a season without being crowned champions. But can she do it? Like everything that happened in the past year: unpredictable.
