The Pittsburgh Penguins canceled their practice and scrimmage on Saturday for precautionary reasons after possibly being exposed to COVID-19, according to NHL.com’s Wes Crosby.

On Friday, the Dallas Stars were forced to cancel their training camp activities for the day after six players and two staff members tested positive for COVID-19. Their practice facility will be closed for a few days and their first three games of the 2020-21 season have been postponed.

The Columbus Blue Jackets also had multiple players miss practice on Friday in observance of the NHL’s COVID-19 protocols.

The Penguins are set to open the season on Wednesday at the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Washington Capitals are scheduled to visit the Penguins on Sunday, January 17, and Tuesday, January 19.
