VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Canucks will begin practising on Sunday as long as they get negative COVID-19 test results.

The NHL said that if the Canucks get a clean bill of health they will play the Edmonton Oilers on Friday.

The decision was made by the NHL, NHLPA and Vancouver's medical groups.

A total of seven Canucks games have been postponed between March 31 and April 14.

The NHL has rescheduled those games with the team's 56-game schedule now ending on May 16.

Vancouver still has 19 players on the NHL's COVID protocol list.

The Canucks organization said it has followed all recommended guidelines aimed at protecting the health and safety of its players, staff and community at large as set by the NHL, local, provincial and federal agencies.
