QMJHL cancels regular season

QMJHL - Contributed

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League regular season is over.

The league made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon due to the coronavirus, but it hasn’t made a decision on the playoffs or what format they would use if the post-season does occur.

Points percentage was used to determine final standings where teams had played a different number of games.

The Islanders (33-26-5-0), who had four games remaining in the regular season, finished fifth in the Eastern Conference. The Rimouski Oceanic had 84 points in 64 games and finished fourth in the conference while Cape Breton was placed ahead of them with 83 points in 63 games.

The draft lottery, originally scheduled for March 25, has been postponed. It will be held to determine the top five picks in the draft.

The Islanders don’t have a first-round pick as it was traded to Chicoutimi in August for defenceman Oscar Plandowski. Charlottetown does own Halifax’s second-round pick from the Keith Getson trade. It will be the second pick in the second round.
