After the cancellation of the Round of 16 Return Game between Lukko Rauma and HC Bolzano, the CHL’s Covid-19 committee has consulted on the case and decided on the resolution:
For the affected Round of 16 matchup only the result of the first game will be taken into consideration. Since Lukko Rauma won the game 3-1, the Finnish team will advance to the Quarter-Finals.
For clarification: Due to the tight international calendar there are no additional Game Days available in the CHL to make up postponed games as is the usual procedure in national leagues.
The Round of 16 Return Game between Lukko Rauma and HC Bolzano was originally scheduled for Wednesday evening and has been cancelled as a precautionary measure set by Finnish authorities as a number of team members of Lukko Rauma are unable to participate due to the Covid-19 protocol.
