COVID-19 outbreak forces OHL’s Sudbury Wolves to suspend activities

The Sudbury Wolves have suspended all activities after 12 players on the OHL team tested positive for COVID-19, the league announced on Tuesday.

The league stated in its release that “players affected are currently asymptomatic or exhibiting mild symptoms and the League and team will continue to monitor their well-being.”

The OHL, which didn’t not have a season in 2020-21 because of COVID, previously mandated that all players, staff, officials and billets be vaccinated.

The suspension means at least three upcoming games involving the Wolves will be postponed: Wednesday in Sault Ste. Marie, Friday at home against the Barrie Colts and Saturday in Barrie.

The OHL did not identify the players or team personnel who had tested positive.
