The Boston Bruins made their first announcement regarding events being effected by coronavirus prevention.
The Bruins will postpone their March 24 ceremony to honor the 1970 Stanley Cup team to the 2020-21 season.
Here's the official announcement:
"The Boston Bruins announced today, March 11, that the organization has postponed the ceremony to honor the 1970 Stanley Cup Team to the Fall of the 2020-21 season. Given the higher risks associated with COVID-19 in older adults, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends avoiding all non-essential travel and as such the Bruins do not want to encourage travel for members of the 1970 team.
The ceremony was originally scheduled to be held prior to the Bruins-Red Wings game at TD Garden on Tuesday, March 24.
The Boston Bruins organization looks forward to celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1970 Stanley Cup Team at a future date and time to be announced."
