National Hockey League postpones Hurricanes’ games through Saturday

National Hockey League postpones Hurricanes’ games through Saturday”

Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour and his staff, along with those around the National Hockey League, will be required to wear masks during games this season. Staal had been on that list since Friday, with the Hurricanes losing at Detroit on Saturday then winning 4-2 at Nashville on Monday in that span.

It looks like they won't be playing at all in the immediate future.

Tuesday's clash between the Carolina Hurricanes and Nashville Predators is postponed due to COVID-19 protocols, the league announced.

A makeup date has yet to be announced.

The NHL did not specify which team prompted the postponement, though four Hurricanes players were added to the COVID-19 list Tuesday. Monday's daily report listed Jordan Staal and Mikael Granlund as the only players from Carolina and Nashville with COVID-related absences.

Carolina's home opener was scheduled for Thursday against the Florida Panthers, the first of six straight games the Hurricanes were to play at PNC Arena, though without fans. Throw in the fact Dallas, with a preseason outbreak of 17 players with positive tests, has yet to play their first game and even though the National Hockey League expected these kinds of issues were going to arise, this is more than a little troubling. Their first four games were postponed after 17 players tested positive. The Predators next play the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center on Friday. All of Dallas' players and staff have reportedly recovered without suffering serious complications from the virus.
