The QMJHL announced it has postponed five games in Atlantic provinces as due to the potential severe weather as Hurricane Fiona approaches the east coast of Canada.

Games from Sept. 23 to Sept. 25 have been postponed so far, impacting Moncton, Cape Breton, Charlottetown, Halifax, Acadie-Bathurst and Saint John.

These games have been pushed to "ensure the players, staff, fans and officials’ safety", per a release from the league.

Hurricane Fiona is on track to move northward and into the Maritimes late Friday and Saturday as it transitions to a post-tropical storm. At this time, many in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic are without power or running water due to the hurricane.
