The Western Hockey League has announced the postponement of four games in Manitoba due to the province's capacity restrictions.

The game originally scheduled for Jan. 1 between the Red Deer Rebels and Brandon Wheat Kings will now be played on Feb. 7. The following matchups have also been postponed to a later date:

Monday, Jan. 3: Moose Jaw at Winnipeg
Friday, Jan. 7: Calgary at Brandon
Saturday, Jan. 8: Calgary at Winnipeg

The NHL recently postponed Canadian-based games due to capacity restrictions, along with one other date due to COVID-19-related issues, which included Winnipeg Jets games.

The province of Manitoba recently ordered a limit on large gatherings, which led to the Jets banning fans from home games until at least Jan. 11.

A maximum of 250 spectators can attend a hockey game under current rules.
