NHL: 3 Winnipeg Jets matches postponed due to participation restrictions

Several Winnipeg Jets games have been postponed due to current capacity restrictions on participation.

The NHL announced Tuesday that three games involving the Jets will be postponed until later in the season, “due to current attendance restrictions in certain Canadian cities.”

The matches involving Winnipeg include a New Year’s Eve game in Calgary against the Flames, a home game against the Seattle Kraken on January 8, and a home game against the Minnesota Wild on January 10.

Makeup dates have not yet been announced.

Manitoba’s public health orders for indoor sporting events with tickets currently limit assembly sizes to 50 percent of the venue’s capacity, or 250 people, whichever is lower.

The NHL has postponed 70 games this season and started its holiday season on December 23rd due to COVID-19 incidents among players and coaches. The game resumes on Tuesday.
