DALLAS - The Dallas Stars’ next two hockey games against the Colorado Avalanche have been postponed because of COVID-19 related issues.
The Stars currently have eight players and two other staff members currently on the COVID-19 protocol list.
The team said its game Wednesday in Colorado and Friday night's traditional New Year's Eve game at the American Airlines Center will be rescheduled for a later date.
The NHL also said the game between Chicago and Winnipeg on Wednesday has been postponed for the same reason.
Last week, the league postponed all games involving Canadian-based teams, including the game between the Stars and Winnipeg, because of the highly contagious omicron variant.
There’s no word yet on a make-up date for the affected games.
