Thursday’s San Jose Sharks-Vegas Golden Knights game is latest postponed by COVID-19
San Jose’s game against the Vegas Golden Knights scheduled for Thursday night has been postponed after Sharks forward Tomas Hertl entered the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol on Wednesday.
It’s the 36th NHL game this season to be postponed for virus-related issues and 40th counting the Texas snowstorm that affected the Dallas Stars.
The league on Tuesday announced a major revision of its schedule.
The Sharks’ facilities have been closed. The team canceled practice Wednesday but said that decision and the postponement “was made out of an abundance of caution.”
The NHL had eight players on its COVID protocol list on Wednesday, tying Tuesday’s season low. Four are from the Philadelphia Flyers.
