NEW YORK--The National Hockey League announced that as a result of five additional Minnesota Wild players being added today to the NHL's COVID Protocol Related Absence List, the team's games will be postponed at least through Tuesday, Feb. 9. That incudes the matchup on Thursday at Ball Arena against the Colorado Avalanche.
The team's training facilities have been closed, effective immediately, and will remain so until further notice. The League is in the process of reviewing and revising the Wild's regular season schedule.
The Wild 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.
