Government shutdown forces Air Force cancellation; Army unaffected (UPDATE)

The government shutdown has caused the cancellation of all Air Force athletic events, including tonight’s Sacred Heart at Air Force game.

Army West Point, which is currently funded under a different arrangement, is unaffected. The Black Knights play their annual exhibition tonight against Royal Military College of Canada in Kingston, Ontario.

UPDATE: Atlantic Hockey has informed USCHO that should the shutdown end by 3:00 pm mountain time, the game will go on as scheduled. If not, the schools and league will reschedule for a date to be determined, most likely in February.
