Avalanche games postponed to Feb. 11 after Gabe Landeskog added to COVID-19 away roster – The Denver Post

The Colorado Avalanche won’t play another game for at least a week.

The NHL announced Thursday night that all Avs games have been postponed until at least Feb. 11, “following players’ recent entry into NHL COVID protocols,” a statement read. Medical advisors for the league, NHLPA and Avalanche, in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, have determined that action is necessary as additional test results will be analyzed in the next days.

The action came hours after Avalanche captain Gabe Landeskog was added to the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol absence list, joining teammate Tyson Jost.

The Avalanche, who were scheduled to face the St. Louis Blues in back-to-back games this weekend, have closed their practice facilities. These facilities will remain closed indefinitely.

“The League is in the process of reviewing and revising the Avalanche’s regular season schedule and it is expected that a decision on next week’s games will be made in the coming days,” said a statement from the NHL. “The Colorado organization has, and will continue to follow, all recommended guidelines designed to protect the health and safety of its players, staff and the community as a whole, as established by the NHL, agencies local, state and national.”

The Avs did not practice Thursday instead of facing the Minnesota Wild at Ball Arena. The game was postponed Wednesday after Jost and five additional Wild players were added to the COVID-19 protocol absence list. A sixth Minnesota player, Nico Sturm, joined the roster Thursday with Landeskog, and the Wild now have seven unavailable players. The Wild team’s headquarters have been closed and all of their games postponed until at least Tuesday.

The protocol absence list can be the result of a positive test, an unconfirmed positive test, or a contact tracing.

Landeskog was among four Avalanche players added to the roster to start training camp, and he missed the first three days of on-ice activity.
