Youth Ice Hockey Is Back In Massachusetts

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It was a step towards normalcy for youth hockey players and their families Sunday morning, as ice rinks reopened across the state.

Kids and teens were back on the ice at Connery Skating Rink in Lynn, after more than two weeks of ice rink closures due to a series of COVID-19 outbreaks.

Parents in Lynn cheered on their little sports prodigies Sunday morning, including one mom who said her 11-year-old is thrilled to be back.

"It was killing him not being able to play the past couple of weeks," she said. "It's how he gets his energy out and all his exercise, especially with no school and no gym class. As long as everybody is following the rules, I feel like it's safe."

Those rules include face coverings for everybody, a limited number of family in stands, and social distancing among spectators. Obviously, there's not much social distancing on the ice.
