Dallas Stars: NHL Pauses 2019-20 Season Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

The National Hockey League officially paused the 2019-20 regular season due to the coronavirus outbreak, it announced shortly after noon CT on Thursday. All games, including tonight’s scheduled contest between the Dallas Stars and Florida Panthers, as well as other League events, have been postponed indefinitely.

It all began on Wednesday night when Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz tested preliminarily positive for coronavirus prior to the team’s tipoff against the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City. Within minutes of the news breaking, the NBA had suspended its season indefinitely.
