DianaCanada, through my (almost!) 50 years involvement with British ice-hockey, I have known many Canadians ;D  So I do know it's hockey ;)
But in speaking to a largely non-Canadian audience I always use the "ice" prefix :D

Formerly club secretary of Avon Arrows IHC (Bristol).
20 years as a referee.
And now 26 years as a statistician!

Largely redundant at the moment due to no rinks being open!

Go Canucks!!

I know that on other countries field hockey is played, so there has to be a distinction! Not much field hockey played here.
Getting back to the OP original question, I imagine armchair sports, whatever is still being played, are helping fans get through.
A big curling bonspiel has just been cancelled in Alberta.
