LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The National Hockey League announced today that as a result of a San Jose Sharks Player entering the NHL’s COVID Protocols earlier today, the team’s game tomorrow night against the Vegas Golden Knights will be postponed.
The decision was made by the League’s, NHLPA’s and Club’s medical groups while the League continues to analyze test results in the coming days.
As an appropriate precaution, 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 Sharks’ regular season schedule.
Two games between the teams were postponed earlier this month after a VGK player and staff members tested positive or were exposed.
The Sharks’ 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.
