Sunday’s Flyers-Rangers game latest COVID postponement

The Flyers will stay at No. 12 for next month's NHL Draft.

      The list of Flyers’ postponed games has grown to four.

      The NHL announced late Wednesday that the scheduled game between the Flyers at the New York Rangers on Sunday has been postponed, due to three Philadelphia players in COVID-19 protocol (Travis Sanheim, Claude Giroux, Justin Braun).

      The Flyers have already had this previous Tuesday’s game at Washington postponed as well as Thursday’s and Saturday’s home games against the Devils. The latter two were originally postponed because of New Jersey players in protocol.

      The NHL announced the Flyers will have their home practice rink, the Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J., closed until Monday.

      According to the league, the decisions were made by the NHL, the NHL Players’ Association and the Flyers’ medical groups.

      In a press release, the NHL said: “The Flyers’ organization has, and will continue to follow, all recommended guidelines aimed at protecting the health and safety of its Players, staff and community at large as set by the NHL, local, state and national agencies.’’
