Vancouver Canucks to resume NHL season on April 16, pending results of COVID-19 tests | CBC Sports

The Vancouver Canucks will begin practicing on Sunday — as long as they get negative COVID-19 test results.

The NHL said that if the Canucks get a clean bill of health, they will play the Edmonton Oilers on April 16. Vancouver still has 19 players on the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol list.

The decision was made by the NHL, NHLPA and Vancouver’s medical groups.

A total of seven Canucks games have been postponed between March 31 and April 14.
