The National Hockey League has paused the Detroit Red Wings’ schedule through at least Dec. 26, the league and team jointly announced Sunday.
The announcement came on the heels of three more Red Wings players and one staff member entering COVID-19 protocol.
Forwards @Pius Suter, @Joe Veleno, and @Sam Gagner, as well as assistant video coach Jeff Weintraub, have entered protocol, joining @Robby Fabbri, @Michael Rasmussen, @Filip Zadina, @Carter Rowney, @Givani Smith, @Alex Nedeljkovic, and coaches Jeff Blashill and Alex Tanguay on the sidelines.
Also on Sunday, the NHL announced it would postpone all cross-border matchups through at least Dec. 23.
As a result of this schedule change, the Red Wings are currently set to return to action on Dec. 27 against the New York Rangers.
