It'll be a while before we see the Halifax Mooseheads hit the ice again. 

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League has announced it's pausing all activity, from Dec. 1. to Jan. 3, 2021, because of COVID-19. 

"The current situation with the pandemic in the regions in which we operate makes it extremely difficult to play games," read a statement from Commissioner Gilles Courteau.

"With the Holidays just around the corner, the provinces in the Maritimes have restricted access and travel, while red zone restrictions in Quebec do not permit us to play."

The Mooseheads haven't played a game since Nov. 20 after a member of the organization tested positive for COVID-19.
