Postponed NHL premiere for some teams

The NHL has planned to start a delayed and shortened season on January 13. At least one match is now forced to be moved due to several corona outbreaks. It is in the Dallas Stars that six players and two leaders have left positive corona tests. The team has now quarantined the players and closed its training facility for the time being.

Dallas was supposed to start the season against the Florida Panthers away, but is now forced to cancel that match. Dallas will be able to return to play on January 19 at the earliest. This also affects at least one game with the Tampa Bay Lightning and another game against the Florida Panthers. Probably more games will be moved and the NHL is now working on rearranging the game schedule.

The Columbus Blue Jackets held a number of players out of today’s scheduled practice out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with NHL Covid-19 protocols. However, it remains to be seen whether this will affect their season premiere against the Nashville Predators on January 14.
