NHL Delays Canucks’ Return to Play After COVID-19 Outbreak
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — The NHL has delayed the Vancouver Canucks’ return to competition. The Canucks have not played a game since March 24 due to a COVID-19 outbreak. They were previously scheduled to host the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night. The league says the team won't play that game and it did not immediately set a new date for Vancouver's return. The league says the decision was made with input from the NHL Players’ Association and medical staff from teams. The NHL plans to announce additional changes to the schedule for North Division teams on Friday.
