The St. Louis Blues have apparently canceled practices due to favorable coronavirus tests involving members of the organization.
Per The Athletic’s Jeremy Rutherford and Scott Burnside, the Blues shut down their centers before Friday’s arranged exercise coming from ” multiple” favorable tests, but they are “anticipated” to reopen for practice Monday.
Rutherford and Burnside kept in mind the Blues used a multipurpose center in Maryland Heights, Missouri, for an exercise Thursday, and it was open for public usage the following day.
The NHL is presently in the 2nd stage of its “Go back to Play” plan. Teams are permitted to open training centers in their home cities so gamers can take part in voluntary individual activities with an optimum of six players and minimal staff allowed the structure at the exact same time.
Per Larry Brooks of the New York Post, the NHL is encouraging teams the third phase (training camps) won’t begin until at least July 13 pending ratification of the return-to-play contract between the owners and players.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie has actually reported Aug. 1 is the target date to start the 24- group postseason, however the league has yet to make a formal statement.
