The two contests that have been postponed include:
Jan. 8 matchup between the Senators and Canucks.
Jan. 15 matchup between the Senators and Jets.
For Winnipeg, who was originally set to host the Seattle Kraken this Saturday and the Minnesota Wild on Monday, they’re now scheduled to play just one game between Jan. 7-17. After their contest against the Detroit Red Wings on Jan. 13 concludes, they’ll be off until heading to Washington to face the Capitals on Jan. 18.
Amid the current COVID-19 surge, all seven Canadian franchises are currently being affected by attendance restrictions in some form.
The Jets are slated to resume their schedule against the Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena on Jan. 13, beginning at 6:30 pm CT.
