The NHL has deferred the Colorado Avalanche’s games through Feb. 11.
Colorado turns into the fifth group shut down, joining Vegas, New Jersey, Buffalo and Minnesota. Dallas and Carolina were placed on hold in January due to flare-ups.
The Avalanche right now have two players on the alliance’s COVID-19 rundown: skipper Gabriel Landeskog and forward Tyson Jost. Colorado played the Wild, who presently have seven players on the rundown, multiple times over the previous week and right now had their game booked for Thursday night delayed.
There are 40 players from 11 groups on the COVID-19 inaccessible rundown, and the association established new conventions Thursday trying to moderate the spread of the infection.
