The Vancouver Canucks announced on Sunday that they have canceled their training camp activities for the day out of precaution after players could have been exposed to COVID-19. The NHL will announce if any players tested positive for the virus.

This is the third time in as many days that a team has had to cancel a day’s worth of training camp plans due to COVID-19. The Dallas Stars’ training camp closed for a few days after six players and two staff members tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday and the Pittsburgh Penguins canceled Saturday’s activities after possibly being exposed to the virus.

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

The Stars are the only NHL team so far to have games postponed as they will not play their first three games as initially scheduled.

The Canucks are slated to open the season at the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday and play them at Rogers Place in Edmonton again on Thursday.
