The Vancouver Canucks have cancelled practices and workouts Sunday out of an abundance of caution due to potential exposure of COVID-19.

Vancouver is the fourth team to have training camps impacted by the coronavirus over the last three days. The team said further updates about Monday's practice would be announced later.

The Pittsburgh Penguins cancelled practice Saturday after a potential exposure to COVID-19. The NHL was forced to delay the start of the Dallas Stars' season in light of six players and two staff members testing positive for the novel coronavirus.

The Columbus Blue Jackets also announced Friday that multiple players would miss practice due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.
