Golden Knights-Sharks postponed Thursday because of COVID-19


The game between the Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks scheduled for Thursday at SAP Center in San Jose has been postponed after a Sharks player entered NHL COVID-19 protocol.

San Jose’s training facilities have been closed until further notice. 

A makeup date has not been announced.

The Sharks played their first home game of the season at SAP Center on Feb. 13 after playing their previous 12 on the road due to COVID-19 restrictions in Santa Clara County, California, that included a ban on contact sports. 

San Jose held training camp in Arizona because of the ban, which went into effect in November and was lifted Jan. 25.

The Golden Knights are next scheduled to play at the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday; the Sharks are next scheduled to host the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.

Vegas had three games postponed earlier this season due to protocol, including two against San Jose.

The NHL has postponed 41 games this season, including 37 because of COVID-19 protocol. Four games were postponed because of weather-related issues.
