The NHL postpones Thursday’s Ducks vs. Red Wings game
The NHL postpones Thursday’s Ducks vs. Red Wings game and reschedules it for January 9.
— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) January 6, 2022
The announcement is a result of Anaheim encountering COVID-19 related issues.
Hours before the game, the Ducks placed Sam Carrick, John Gibson, Hampus Lindholm, and Vinni Lettieri under the league’s COVID-19 protocols. They joined teammates Nicolas Deslauriers, Ryan Getzlaf, and Derek Grant, who are already under the protocols. Trevor Zegras cleared protocols but was not going to play Thursday regardless.
Over at FanDuel Sportsbook, Zegras is a +200 to win the Calder Memorial Trophy. He only trails Lucas Raymond, who sits at +170.
Zegras is second on the team in scoring, with 25 points in 30 games, while Getzlaf is fourth with 20 points in 29 games.
Coming into tonight’s game, Anaheim sits second in the Pacific division but has lost four of its past five games.
COVID-19 strikes again. The good news is the NHL has already rescheduled the game. When that line comes down, you’ll be able to find it at FanDuel Sportsbook.
