Delaware North, the ownership company of the Boston Bruins, announced Wednesday there will be "temporary business stabilization measures" put in place April 1 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The company, led by chairman Jeremy Jacobs, stated 68 of the team's full-time employees will be placed on temporary leave, while 82 others are getting an "indefinite salary reduction."

"As relayed to our associates today, none of these decisions were reached without difficult and painful deliberations," a statement from Delaware North read. "These measures are intended to be temporary with associate employment and compensation returning once our business resumes to its normal state from this unprecedented stoppage.
