The NHL announced that tonight’s game between the Golden Knights and Blues has been postponed.
As a result of a player and another member of the Vegas Golden Knights coaching staff entering the NHL’s COVID Protocols, the team’s game tonight against the St. Louis Blues will be postponed. The decision was made by the League’s, NHLPA’s and Club’s medical groups after recent tests warranted more caution while the League continues to analyze test results in the coming days.
The team’s training facilities have been closed, effective immediately, and will remain closed until further notice. The League is in the process of reviewing and revising the Golden Knights’ regular season schedule and it is expected that a decision on next week’s games will be made in the next 24-48 hours. The Golden Knights organization has, and will continue to follow, all recommended guidelines aimed at protecting the health and safety of its Players, staff and community at large as set by the NHL, local, state and national agencies. -NHL Press Release
Since you have no game to recap, would love to see this take. Potential Seattle Expansion team and how it compares to VGK Expansion lineup or VGK Expansion biggest misses (players we could have picked that have budded into solid players).
So only one player has tested positive? I thought that was the purpose of the taxi squad? I’m confused as to why a game has to be canceled because of one player. I would love to know who was the first coach to test positive and start this domino effect
Daryl, I believe a person can be infected and contagious before actually testing positive. So, if a player “ tests positive and has been in contact with other players it’s possible others have been infected. I could be wrong about that, but it would explain the self-isolating of the coaches Tuesday, and now that it has affected a player the need to postpone the game. Sounds like if in the next 24-48 hours there aren’t more positive tests they might be able to resume play as scheduled.
You are probably right but if that’s the case why wasn’t everyone put on lock down after the first coach tested positive? He had to have been around the players or at least around another coach who was around the players
It was inevitable that covid would make an impact! It is raging, but still have people saying it is fake or some such crap! It’s just ridiculous, that after one year, some are not taking this serious. They whine about wearing masks, about not going in person to a hockey game. Well tell you what. If the vast majority doesn’t wake up, this virus is going to continue for a long time.
Nobody believes uts fake, we just don’t believe it’s as bad as they say it is. Funny how this year there have been only 4 deaths from the Flu. The father of my martial arts instructir died 2 days ago and they said it was covid related…. He had covid 2 months ago.
Remember Sturgis last year… Thousands of people attended and only 4 got covid from going.
Now our President wants us to wear multiple masks smh.
Do me a favor, go hide in the corner, count me out. I’m grown up enough to exercise good judgment DOC, I will never listen to a bunch of leftists hypocrites who have no intention of following these dictates they impose on us. This is a political virus, exploited by Marxists politicians, who you love, to centralize more power. Its a Marxists/Communists dream come true. Well, I will never bend to a hypocrite pretend Governor and politicians all over the country who violate their terms they impose on us. We can’t even put together a hockey game, filled with young, fit athletes. What a con job you have swallowed hook line and sinker.
By the way, a comment I made was taken off. I never used profanity, I made my points, but criticized political leaders. Cmon Ken, these politicians are hammering us, we deserve better. I’m surprised by your censorship. We must fight for the preservation of our freedoms, I will never apologize for this.
He probably took out your comment because it was incoherent babble.
Nobody wants to hear regurgitated, debunked talking points.
