NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Buffalo Sabres Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

The National Hockey League announced today that they are suspending the remainder of their 2019-20 season indefinitely due to concerns with COVID-19.

The league reportedly is hoping for a short-term break and resuming the season in a few weeks. They’ll evaluate the situation day by day.

If the Buffalo Sabres are done for this season they’ll have played 69 games and will finish with 68 points. That would have put the Sabres on an 81 point pace over an 82 game season.

As for our site, we’ll now move into “offseason mode” and continue to do our best to provide content for you to consume. We’ll also provide any updates the NHL releases on their plans for the remainder of the season.

If this is indeed the end of the season, all of us at Die By The Blade appreciate your support through another rough year on the ice.

Everyone stay smart, safe, and healthy.
