The NHL announced that the game between the St. Louis Blues and Vegas Golden Knights scheduled for Thursday night at T-Mobile Arena has been postponed after Golden Knights defenseman Alex Pietrangelo and a coach have entered the league’s COVID-19 protocol.

The entire Golden Knights’ coaching staff sat out Tuesday’s game between the two teams after one coach tested positive. GM Kelly McCrimmon, Henderson Silver Knights head coach Manny Viveros, and Silver Knights assistant coaches Joel Ward and Jason Heyward filled in for head coach Peter DeBoer and his staff during the Golden Knights’ 5-4 shootout loss.

This is the ninth game that the NHL has had to postpone this season due to COVID-19 protocol.

The Blues are scheduled to visit the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday while the Golden Knights are not scheduled to play again until Monday when they take on the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center.
