The Vancouver Canucks will not play for at least a week after three members of the team were placed in the NHL’s COVID protocols, the league announced Thursday.
The NHL said in a statement that Canucks games have been postponed until April 8. Two players — Adam Gaudette and Travis Hamonic — and a member of the coaching staff went on the league’s protocol list Wednesday. The earliest the Canucks can practice is Tuesday.
A total of four games, including Wednesday’s previously announced postponement against the Calgary Flames, will be affected. Vancouver had also been scheduled to face the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday and for a pair of games against the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday and Tuesday.
The resumption of practice and games is pending further test results, the NHL said.
