The scheduled Wednesday night game between the Calgary Flames and the host Vancouver Canucks was postponed due to COVID-19, according to the NHL.

The announcement was made within two hours of faceoff after Vancouver forward Adam Gaudette as well as an unnamed Vancouver player and a Canucks coach entered COVID-19 protocols. The Canucks are scheduled to play Saturday in Edmonton to kick off a seven-game road trip.

The Flames don’t have any players on the COVID-19 list and are slated to travel to Edmonton to play the Oilers on Friday.

The NHL will further update the situation on Thursday.
