This brings the grand total to 64 games postponed by the NHL this season, and all but three of those have been in the last two weeks. The league will provide another update on Sunday, determining the status of more future games, and potentially the 2022 Winter Classic at Target Field in Minneapolis between the Minnesota Wild and the St. Louis Blues.
There are a total of 142 players currently on the league’s COVID protocol list. Only three of 32 teams do not have a player that is on the list: the Wild, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Pittsburgh Penguins.
We will have to see where this goes, but right now, it’s possible no NHL hockey will played in the remainder of 2021.
