VANCOUVER, British Columbia — A Covid-19 outbreak inside an N.H.L. team that began on March 30 has now impacted most of its players.
The Vancouver Canucks said in a statement released by a team physician and an infectious disease doctor on Wednesday that the organization had 25 confirmed cases, 21 players (three from the taxi squad) and four staff members. The statement, from the team physician Jim Bovard and the infectious disease physician Josh Douglas, also said that “the source infection is confirmed a variant.”
