Finnish Liiga to pause from December 3rd to 19th due to coronavirus restrictions

Via a report from’s Alexander Ellhar, I headed over to the Finnish Liiga’s website, and the entire league is pausing from December 3rd to December 19th to address stricter regulations being imposed by the Finnish government due to coronavirus issues.

The league will postpone games scheduled for the December 3rd-to-19th time frame and play them at a later date; this isn’t good news for Otto Kivenmaki, Kasper Kotkansalo (both play for Assat Pori) or Victor Brattstrom (who plays for KooKoo)…

But as Kivenmaki is a 20-year-old, he may still be eligible for the Finnish World Junior team, which should be named any day now.

In any case, today’s game between Assat and KooKoo will be played to squeeze in one last game before the league pause.
