The Chicago Blackhawks have cancelled today’s practice at Fifth Third Arena out of an abundance of caution due to potential exposure of COVID-19.— Chicago Blackhawks (@NHLBlackhawks) January 30, 2021
On Monday, the NHL placed Chicago Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat and defenseman Adam Boqvist on the league's COVID-19 protocol list.
The move means DeBrincat and Boqvist won't be able to play, practice or travel with the team until they are cleared.
The Blackhawks play the Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday at the United Center. A morning skate will also be held there that morning.
