Canucks have virus trouble

VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Canucks have canceled their training camp practices and workouts due to potential exposure to COVID-19.

The Canucks said in a release that Sunday’s cancellation was made “out of abundance of caution” and provided no further details.

The Canucks’ decision comes as NHL teams gear up for an abbreviated 56-game season that is set to start Wednesday, when the Canucks are scheduled to visit the Edmonton Oilers.

Vancouver is the fourth team to have its training camp affected by the virus.

The Dallas Stars announced Friday six players and two staff members had tested positive for during camp, while the Columbus Blue Jackets kept some of their roster off the ice due to possible exposure.

On Saturday, the Pittsburgh Penguins canceled practice for the same reason.
