DESPITE NHL’S 99% VACCINATION RATE, OTTAWA SENATORS GAMES POSTPONED DUE TO COVID

We’ve reached the period in NHL history where the league will postpone games for a fully vaccinated hockey roster. Ottawa Sun columnist Bruce Garrioch reported Monday that the Ottawa Senators will have games this week against the Devils, Predators and Rangers postponed because the team has 10 players in COVID protocol.

Garrioch noted in a weekend report on the Senators COVID issues that before a recent three-city trip to “COVID-19 hotspots” of Dallas, Chicago and St. Paul, Minn., team GM Pierre Dorion made “a point of going to the dressing room to speak with the group before the Senators went on that trip. He told them the best bet was to proceed with caution while on the road and to stay with teammates as much as possible.”

It’s unclear how many of the 10 players are showing COVID symptoms or if they’re asymptomatic.
