According to TSN’s Frank Seravalli, four Carolina Hurricanes players tested positive for COVID-19, which forced Tuesday night’s game at the Nashville Predators to be postponed.

Hurricanes captain Jordan Staal has been on the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol list since last week.

This is the fifth game that the NHL has had to postpone this season due to COVID-19. All of the games postponed feature teams within the Central Division (the Dallas Stars’ first four games were postponed after six players and two staff members tested positive).

The Hurricanes beat the Predators at Bridgestone Arena by a score of 4-2 on Monday night.

The Hurricanes are scheduled to host the Florida Panthers on Thursday night and the Predators are slated to visit the Stars on Friday. Both teams have started the season 2-1-0.
