The NHL has delayed their return to play by a day, cancelling all December 27th games.
This, of course, includes the Vancouver Canucks’ game against the Seattle Kraken, which was set to take place on the evening of the 27th as the Canucks look to stay undefeated in the Bruce Boudreau era.
In a statement, the league said:
The National Hockey League announced today that its regular-season schedule will not resume prior to Tuesday, Dec. 28. The League had planned to resume its schedule on Dec. 27, but in order to allow the League an adequate opportunity to analyze League-wide testing results and to assess Clubs’ readiness to play, the target date for resumption of game play will be pushed back an additional day. Teams will return to practice on Dec. 26 and it is expected that the League will provide an update on its return to play plans by the end of day on Sunday.
The Canucks’ game against Seattle will be rescheduled at a later date.
More to come.
