QMJHL Moves 7 Teams to a Bubble After Covid Outbreaks

The Canadian Hockey League has been working diligently to try and get all three of their leagues off the ground during the Covid-19 pandemic. While the Ontario Hockey League and Western Hockey League have yet to start, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League has begun its season. Quite frankly, it's not going very well...

The league has dealt with several team outbreaks and there are growing concerns about its operations during the pandemic. 

For now, one solution has been to move seven teams to a bubble, in hopes to keep everyone safe. The bubble will last 10 days for the following teams, who will play six regular season games: Gatineau Olympiques, Drummondville Voltiguers, Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, Victoriaville Tigres, Shawinigan Cataractes, Chicoutimi Sagueneens, and Quebec Remparts will station themselves accordingly at the Videotron Centre from Nov. 17-27.

The OHL is in a 'battle' with the province's health minister as bodychecking continues to be front and center. The league hopes to start on February 4th. In the west, the WHL hopes to start January 8th.

Let's hope they get everything under control in the Q.
