OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - The USHL, which includes the Omaha Lancers and Lincoln Stars, have canceled the rest of their season due to the coronavirus.

The league previously announced a postponement of their season.

“This decision was not an easy one to make, but was a necessity in order to keep our athletes, staffs and fans in all 16 of our communities safe amid this international health risk,” said USHL President and Commissioner Tom Garrity. “While we believe our product is the best junior hockey that fans can view, we also understand the health of our athletes, employees, fans and communities is more important during this time.”

With the season concluded, the USHL will announce the 2019-20 season awards in the coming weeks.
