After postponing Wednesday’s Flames - Canucks game due to COVID protocol, the NHL announced that three more Canucks contests have been postponed.

In total, at least four Canucks games have now been postponed: Wednesday’s game against the Flames, two against the Jets, and one versus the Oilers.

As of Thursday, two Canucks players are in COVID protocol: Adam Gaudette and Travis Hamonic. According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, a total of eight players and one staff member have now tested positive for the virus.

(Do note that entering said protocol doesn’t guarantee that a person has necessarily tested positive.)

The Canucks hope to resume their schedule on April 8, and cannot practice any sooner than April 6. With these four postponed Canucks games added, the NHL’s now seen 45 games postponed due to COVID-19 protocol.
