TUCSON, Ariz. — The Tucson Roadrunners season is over.

The American Hockey League announced that the rest of the season and playoffs have been canceled.

The minor league hockey squad plays its home games at the Tucson Convention Center.

When the season was suspended, the team led the Pacific Division with a record of 36-19-1-2. The Roadruners were named division champions.

Roadrunners general manager Steve Sullivan released this statement:

“We are very proud of our players and staff in Tucson. We had a very good 2019-2020 season, but unfortunately it ended unexpectedly. We were in first place since November and excited to compete for the Calder Cup. Starting now, all the work applied to this past season is now focused on preparation for 2020-2021, and our organization and individual goals will remain the same. Thank you very much to our fans and corporate partners for another great season of support in Southern Arizona. We greatly appreciate it.”
