The Carolina Hurricanes announced on Tuesday that 100% of their team has received their COVID-19 vaccines prior to the start of training camp for the 2021-22 NHL season next week.

The Hurricanes face the Tampa Bay Lightning for their first preseason game on Tuesday, September 27.

Newly-signed defenseman Anthony DeAngelo is known for being a supporter of former United States President Donald Trump, who has publically dismissed the idea of getting vaccinated. Many of his followers have also refused to get vaccinated.

The NHL has required players, staff, coaches, and management members to get vaccinated prior to the start of training camp. The regular season is set to open on Tuesday, October 12.

The Buffalo Sabres announced that fans over the age of 12 must be vaccinated to attend games at KeyBank Center this season while the Vegas Golden Knights will not require fans to have been vaccinated to attend games at T-Mobile Arena.

The Sabres said that guests under age 12 do not have to be vaccinated but have to wear a mask inside at all times beginning on September 25. From that time through October 31, fans with one dose can go but they must be fully vaccinated to attend after that.

By “fully vaccinated,” they mean that you have to have gone two weeks after your final shot.
