The Vancouver Canucks will not be playing the Edmonton Oilers Friday night, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported.
Oilers/Canucks — originally scheduled for tomorrow night — will be postponed. Not sure yet about Maple Leafs/Canucks on Saturday.

As the Canucks continue to try and get healthy after a COVID-19 outbreak ravished the team, a decision has been made to postpone Friday’s game.
Canucks forward J.T. Miller spoke out bluntly on Wednesday saying he “doesn’t feel ready at all” to come back to action. Miller wasn’t on the COVID list at any point, but was still off the ice quarantining for the last few weeks.
Quinn Hughes, meanwhile, reportedly needed IV treatment that caused him to lose weight while teammate Brandon Sutter reportedly had “dreadful” symptoms.
Vancouver is scheduled to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday, but one has to question whether or not that game will go on.
This is a very fluid situation, and one that appears to be changing on a near minute-to-minute basis.
