Featuring 185 MPH winds, Hurricane Irma is one of the most powerful storms ever recorded in the Atlantic. The category five hurricane is expected to make landfall on the southern tip of Florida over the weekend and that is now forcing the NHL to cancel an early event there.
The 2017 Prospect Tournament, which was scheduled to take place in Estero, Florida, from Friday through Monday, has been cancelled. The Capitals, Florida Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Nashville Predators were all scheduled to participate.
Estero, located on the southern gulf coast of Florida, will likely feel the full impact of the storm.
More from the Capitals:
