  • Seattle: Dec. 19 vs Toronto

  • Vancouver: Dec. 18 vs Toronto, Dec. 19 vs Arizona

These changes come after other postponed games were announced earlier this week. Calgary, Colorado, and Florida all had their games postponed on Friday and until at least the end of the holiday break and no games have been rescheduled at this time.

For some teams, they’ll be off for a while. Adam Vingan reports, “The Predators are done until after the holiday break. Their games tomorrow at Carolina and Tuesday vs. Winnipeg will be postponed.

For the teams who are still playing, there are a number of roster players out and some clubs will have to forge ahead with depleted lineups. Edmonton will play Seattle, Chicago will play Dallas, New Jersey will play against Detroit, the Los Angeles Kings will play versus Carolina Hurricanes, Ottawa Senators will play the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Kings have made a number of roster moves, as Jacob Ingham (G) has been recalled from the Greenville Swamp Rabbits (ECHL) and Jordan Spence (D) has been loaned to the Ontario Reign (AHL). Cal Petersen (G) has been placed on the non-roster/COVID-19 list. The Canucks are down defenseman Tyler Myers,  joining Luke Schenn, Juho Lammikko, Brad Hunt, Tucker Poolman, and Tyler Motte. P.K. Subban has been placed in COVID protocol for New Jersey, while the Oilers are down Duncan Keith, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Ryan McLeod, and Devin Shore. The Red Wings won’t have goalie Alex Nedeljkovic, wingers Carter Rowney and Givani Smith.
