The Canucks were scheduled to return to game action on Friday night against the Edmonton Oilers before facing the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. Both games were postponed due to concerns from Vancouver’s players about playing so soon after recovering from the COVID-19 outbreak that affected at least 21 players and four staff members.
Vancouver's first game back will be played on Sunday against the Maple Leafs as part of a special Sunday edition of Hockey Night in Canada, which will air at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Sportsnet.
Nylander was placed on the NHL’s COVID List on April 7 after coming in close contact with a positive case from outside the Maple Leafs organization.
The 24-year-old has recorded 13 goals and 17 assists in 39 games with the Leafs this season.
