According to a report from Vancouver Canucks insider Thomas Drance of The Athletic, yet another member of the team has been added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list bringing the total to at least 18 players.
Here are the players on the list form yesterday according to the NHL:
Vancouver – Travis Boyd; Jalen Chatfield; Thatcher Demko; Alex Edler; Adam Gaudette; Travis Hamonic; Jayce Hawryluk; Nils Hoglander; Braden Holtby; Bo Horvat; Quinn Hughes; Zack MacEwen; Marc Michaelis; Tyler Motte; Tyler Myers; Antoine Roussel; Brandon Sutter
That's three-quarters of an entire NHL team... how the league expects this team to get back on the ice in the next week to finish their season is beyond me. At this point the NHL HAS to be looking at the possibility of shutting the team down for the season. The ramifications of a move like that though are frankly enormous... what a tough situation.
