COVID-19: OHL postpones 3 games involving Guelph and Kitchener

The Ontario Hockey League has postponed the next two games of the Erie Otters against the Guelph Storm and Kitchener Rangers.

The American hockey club has stopped all team activities because 13 players tested positive for COVID-19.

“All affected players are currently asymptomatic or show mild symptoms and the league and the team will continue to monitor their well-being,” said the OHL on Wednesday.

“The Ontario Hockey League had previously put in place specific COVID-19 protocols, including mandatory vaccinations for all members of the OHL community, including players, staff, officials, and billets.”

Both the Otters’ game in Guelph on Friday and the home game against the Rangers on Saturday have been postponed.
