WHL suspends actions for Moose Jaw, Crimson Deer and Edmonton because of COVID-10

CALGARY – The Western Hockey League has postponed five games after suspending team activities for the Edmonton Oil Kings, Moose Jaw Warriors and Red Deer Rebels.

The league said in a press release Tuesday that three teams had multiple players and staff added to the WHL COVID-19 protocol list for showing symptoms or testing positive for COVID-19.

The Warriors games on Friday in Lethbridge and on Saturday in Medicine Hat have been postponed, as have the Oil Kings games on Friday in Red Deer and on Sunday in Medicine Hat and Red Deer’s home game on Saturday against Lethbridge.

The postponements are in addition to three games in early January that the WHL postponed due to capacity limits in Manitoba. Moose Jaw’s game on Monday in Winnipeg has been postponed, as has Calgary’s game in Brandon this Friday and Winnipeg on Saturday.
