“The International Ice Hockey Federation is canceling all of its January events because of the rise in COVID-19 cases and could announce the move as soon as Friday, sources told ESPN on Thursday night. The cancellations include the 2022 U18 Women’s World Championships in Sweden, making it the second straight year the IIHF will not have staged the tournament.” [ESPN]

The Great One on whether Alex Ovechkin will catch the goals record: “It’s not even a question that he will pass me, and I think it’s great. He’s well on his way to 40 or 50 goals this year, maybe more. There is no doubt that ultimately, he will break the record.” Nice piece here on Ovi: [New York Times]
