The COVID-19 pandemic has had a global impact. Here at home, the 2020 Gagné-Bergeron Pro-Am hockey game press conference has been postponed. L’Ancienne-Lorette’s Patrice Bergeron, seen here before the 2019 game, joins Lac-Beauport’s Simon Gagné every year to raise money for the Pignon Bleu, Leucan, and the Philippe Boucher and Maurice Tanguay Foundations.

On March 16, Quebec AAA Midget Hockey League president Yannick Lévesque announced the cancellation of the remainder of the 2020 playoffs. “Even though the Telus Cup was cancelled, we hoped to finish the playoffs as we were in the middle of the quarterfinals,” said Lévesque.
