Last week, the NHL announced that it would be pausing the 2019-20 NHL season until further notice due to concerns over COVID-19.

The NHL, along with many other hockey leagues around the world, have come to this decision to pause their seasons. For the Toronto Maple Leafs, this means it’ll be a while before the hunt for a playoff spot and Auston Matthews’ 50-goal campaign resumes.

For hockey fans everywhere, this isn’t news that was taken lightly. With so much hockey left to be played, I’m sure we’re all saddened r at the fact that there won’t be NHL hockey for a while.

Although the league did promise that their goal “is to resume play as soon as it is appropriate and prudent, so that [it] will be able to complete the season and award the Stanley Cup,” it’s possible that this suspension can go on for a while.

As unfortunate as it night be, it’s something we all have to live with. So what do we do in this situation? Well, there’s still a number of different ways you can get your hockey fix and your Toronto Maple Leafs fix in until the season resumes. Here are five different things you can do.
