The Canucks will be without Tucker Poolman, Brad Hunt, Luke Schenn, and Juho Lammikko for at least the next eight days as players are required to quarantine for 10 days before returning under the NHL’s COVID protocols.
Additionally, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet is reporting that assistant coach Jason King will not travel with the team to San Jose in accordance with the NHL COVID-19 protocol.
COVID-19 has ravaged its way through the NHL over the past week. Currently, over 25 members of the Calgary Flames have tested positive, including former Canucks Jacob Markstrom and Chris Tanev.
The Canucks will arrive in San Jose Wednesday evening and face off against the San Jose Sharks tomorrow. Puck drop is at 7:30 PM.
