The Moose Jaw Warriors and the CHL are on a pause right now over concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Warriors general manager Alan Millar was in Penticton, B.C. on a scouting mission when the season pause was announced. There has been no discussion yet as to what to do, if and when it's safe to resume play.

“There’s been no discussions in regards to dates or timing of resuming,” Millar said. “There’s been no discussion in terms of what will happen to the regular season or if the league will go right to playoffs. At this moment, we’re on a pause, gathering more information and the governors will reconvene early next week to talk about next steps.”

The Warriors had six games left in the regular season, but Millar said it's the right choice to pause the season, and that the health and safety of the fans, community and players has to be at the front of mind.

“Our number one priority is the health of everybody, as I’ve mentioned, players, staff, community, and that’s what we’ll continue to focus on here,” he said. “As a husband, as a son, as a brother, as an uncle there’s a lot bigger things than hockey games right now. We want to make sure everybody’s health is important and we want everybody to be safe.”

He returned from B.C. as the season’s pause was announced.

“The big thing for us will be to continue to monitor the health of our players,” Millar said. “And there will be more information. Next week, we’ll have some subsequent governor’s calls with more information in terms of what are plans are moving forward both with games and the status of our players.”
