Two Victoria Royals hockey games have been postponed after two players on the opposing team have tested positive for COVID-19.
The games on Nov. 12 and 13 between the Royals and Spokane Chiefs have been postponed after two Chiefs players tested positive, according to a press release from the Royals Thursday.
They say Spokane has stopped all team activities for the moment, including on and off-ice training and practices while they wait for further test results, according to the WHL.
Players on all rosters including operations staff and office personnel need to be fully vaccinated by a Health Canada approved vaccine, according to the league.
The Victoria Royals say fans who have purchased tickets for Saturday and Sunday’s games will be asked to hold their tickets until the rescheduled date is announced. They will then be able to change their tickets for new dates.
The Royals will be back on the ice on Nov. 19 and 20 when they play the Kamloops Blazers and Vancouver Giants back-to-back.
