Looks like the options are wear a mask and you play with no checking. Don't wear a mask and you will basically have a controlled scrimmage with no face offs and quick whistles with every scrum. So get use to face masks.
No kid is going to wear a mask on the ice that is absurd. It’s going to be business as usual besides maybe social distancing on the bench, masks on coaches, refs, and parents in the stands. Which is the way it should be.
