Any fears of a tremendous-spreader party at Rogers Arena this weekend have been averted.
Owing to a mounting range of Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs entering the NHL’s COVID protocols, the league has announced the postponement of two video games in Vancouver.
In addition to this afternoon’s match against the Leafs, the league claims a Canucks game has been postponed on Sunday (December 19) towards the Arizona Coyotes.
“Tickets for the Canucks games this weekend will be legitimate for the rescheduled dates,” the Canucks stated in a assertion. “Ticket holders are requested to hold onto their tickets and the Canucks will provide additional data as quickly as it is readily available.”
The choice to postpone both game titles arrived following consultation concerning the clubs’ professional medical groups, the NHL, and the NHLPA.
Yet another Canuck participant, defenceman Tyler Myers, was included to the COVID-19 protocols nowadays. Luke Schenn, Juho Lammikko, Brad Hunt, Tucker Poolman, Tyler Motte, and assistant mentor Jason King have been all set on that checklist previously this 7 days.
4 Toronto Maple Leafs are also on the checklist: Alexander Kerfoot, John Tavares, Jason Spezza, and Wayne Simmonds.
Three Arizona Coyotes also entered COVID-19 protocols previously this 7 days: Lawson Crouse, Jay Beagle, and Alex Galchenyuk.
On Sunday at 11:59 p.m., the B.C. government’s new restrictions kick in, restricting potential to 50 p.c for occasions with crowds in extra of 1,000.
That suggests foreseeable future Canucks house online games will only be at fifty percent-ability until January 31, when the province’s limitations are scheduled to expire.
