The 2020 Kraft Hockeyville USA contest has postponed its “top four” announcement, according to the company website.
The Eagle River Recreation Association (ERRA) is attempting to make the finalist list for the second straight year to raise money for improvements at the historic Dome.
The following statement was posted on the Kraft Hockeyville USA website:
“Like you, we have been following the news about COVID-19 closely. The team at Kraft Hockeyville would like to personally extend its heartfelt concern and well wishes to the individuals and families affected by the virus. At all times, the health and safety of our partners, colleagues and community participants is our top priority.
“In light of ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus and after consulting with medical experts, the National Hockey League (NHL) paused the 2019-’20 season. The Kraft Hockeyville team, together with the NHL and the NHL Players Association, have collectively agreed that postponing the announcement of the ‘top four’ community finalists of the Kraft Hockeyville USA 2020 program, which was planned for March 22, is the appropriate decision at this time.
“All previously submitted nominations and entries to Kraft Hockeyville USA 2020 are still valid. Please be on the lookout for further updates and announcements about Kraft Hockeyville USA 2020.”
