Update: the game will resume without fans in the next 15-20 minutes. Fans who were in attendance will receive refunds for their tickets.

The Toronto Fire Department has made the decision to suspend the game and evacuate the arena.

A small electrical fire in a speaker caused the evacuation. The suspension is not yet determined to mean if the game is to be played at a later date, a late time, or if it will be resumed after the speaker situation is resolved. This is all currently being assessed.
