The International Ice Hockey Federation has announced seven new positive COVID-19 tests from the world junior hockey championship after the cancellation of the tournament, including a member of the Canadian team.

Two members of Sweden’s team tested positive, as well as one member each from Russia, Germany and Slovakia. An on-ice official also returned a positive test.

The IIHF announced the positive results Wednesday, a day after the world juniors in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alta., was cancelled in its fourth day. Two players from the United States and a player from Russia and Czechia previously tested positive, resulting in the forfeiture of games.

The IIHF said all team members and officials who tested positive will be required to complete a mandatory minimum 10-day quarantine before they are able to return home.
