Seven Vancouver Canucks have been added to the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol record, bringing the crew’s complete to 14.
The NHL introduced Saturday that goaltender Thatcher Demko, defenceman Tyler Myers and forwards Bo Horvat, Tyler Motte, Travis Boyd, Jayce Hawryluk and Brandon Sutter have been added to the record.
They be a part of goaltender Braden Holtby, defencemen Alex Edler, Quinn Hughes and Travis Hamonic and forwards Adam Gaudette, Zack MacEwan and Antoine Roussel.
The information comes as British Columbia set a file for optimistic circumstances Saturday with 1,072 new infections, up 1,018 from the day earlier than.
It stays to be seen whether or not the elevated variety of Canucks gamers beneath protocol will lead to further missed video games for the crew. Vancouver has already had 4 video games postponed, and as of now the crew can not follow earlier than April 6.
Gaudette was pulled from Tuesday’s follow following a optimistic take a look at outcome and added to the record that afternoon.
The NHL postponed the Vancouver’s Wednesday matchup with the Calgary Flames after one other participant — later recognized as Hamonic — and an unnamed member of the teaching workers entered the league’s protocols.
Holtby, Edler, Hughes, MacEwan and Roussel have been added Friday.
WATCH | Rob Pizzo recaps week 11 within the NHL’s all-Canadian division:
A participant on the COVID-19 protocol record has not essentially examined optimistic.
The league’s protocols require gamers and workers to be examined day by day. Any time a person’s preliminary take a look at comes again optimistic, the lab does a second take a look at on the preliminary pattern.
If the second take a look at is damaging, a second pattern is collected. But when that pattern returns a optimistic outcome, it is thought of to be a “confirmed optimistic.”
The league requires people with optimistic checks to self isolate for 10 days, and for shut contacts to self isolate for 2 weeks.
