Defenceman Travis Hamonic has been added to the NHL’s COVID list.

Hamonic joins Vancouver Canucks teammate Adam Gaudette and an unnamed coach on the league’s COVID protocol list, which was updated this afternoon.

In addition, the NHL has announced that the next three Canucks games have been postponed.

“Pending test results in the coming days, it is expected that the Canucks will be able to resume their game schedule on Thursday, April 8, with a return to practice not occurring before April 6,” the NHL said in a media release. “The Canucks’ organization has, and will continue to follow, all recommended guidelines aimed at protecting the health and safety of its players, staff and community at large as set by the NHL, local, provincial and federal agencies.”

The Canucks were supposed to play road games in Edmonton (April 3) and Winnipeg (April 4 and 6). Their next scheduled game is April 8, on the road against the Calgary Flames.
