Boston University has suspended men’s hockey program activities and canceled its season opener against UConn scheduled for this weekend after someone closely associated with the program tested positive for the coronavirus.

The positive test came from a member of the team’s Tier 1 personnel, which includes players, coaches, managers and support staff, the school said in a statement on its website.

Those people are tested three times a week in accordance with NCAA, Hockey East and university protocols.
