The Dallas Stars have reportedly cancelled practice for COVID-19 related reasons, according to Saad Yousuf and Sean Shapiro of The Athletic.

Matthew DeFranks of the Dallas Morning News adds that the NHL, not the team, will handle any announcement related to the practice cancellation.

During training camps, teams are not permitted to identify any players who are unavailable due to COVID-19 testing, but once the season begins any player who tests positive will be identified and isolated away from his team.
