Current pandemic cancels men’s & women’s Beanpot college hockey tournaments for 2020-21 season

The 2021 men’s and women’s Beanpot championships have been canceled for the first time in the history of the tournament due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Beanpot committee announced on Friday.

“The Beanpot, TD Garden’s annual college hockey tournament, will not be played in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” reads a statement from TD Garden. “We look forward to hosting the 69th Beanpot tournament in 2022.”

Although 3 of the 4 teams (BC, BU, and Northeastern) are set to play their 2020-21 seasons out it was the announcement of all ivy league winter sports being canceled that truly derailed any hope for the tournament to take place. Harvard will not have a hockey season and thus means the traditional setup would not work with only three schools in Boston able to partake.

Northeastern swept both the men’s and women’s Beanpot titles last season for the fifth time in program history, and were the first school to do so since 2014.

The men have won three consecutive Beanpot championships for the first time in program history and have won seven overall. The women have won a record 17 Beanpot championships and swept the Beanpot, Hockey East regular-season and tournament championships for the first time in program history.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
