The 2020 Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony has been indefinitely postponed as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic.

The event was due to take place on November 13-16 in Toronto, Canada.

Hall of Fame chairman Lanny McDonald said: “While it’s possible the Class of 2020 could be inducted on alternative dates during the modified 2020-21 [National Hockey League] season, the most likely scenario is to postpone to November 2021, either by waiving the 2021 elections or in combination with the 2021 induction class involving adjusted category limits.”

A virtual induction ceremony in 2020 has been ruled out, McDonald said.

The Baseball Hall of FamePro Football Hall of Fame and Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame have all postponed their 2020 enshrinement ceremonies until 2021.
