NEW YORK -- The NHL has postponed the Calgary Flames' next three games after six players and a staff member entered the league's COVID-19 protocol over a 24-hour period.
Postponed games include Monday night's game at Chicago, Tuesday's game at Nashville and Thursday's home game against Toronto.
The team said all three would remain in Vancouver. The Hurricanes lost there 2-1 on Sunday, with Aho missing the game with what the team originally said was an illness. Carolina played at Calgary on Thursday, winning 2-1 in overtime.
The league said in a news release that the games were postponed due to concern about continued spread and the likelihood of additional positive cases. The Flames' training facilities were closed until further notice.
Calgary is the third NHL team this season to have games postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak. Last month, the Ottawa Senators had three games postponed and the New York Islanders had two games postponed.
