After long COVID pause, Canucks ready to play Oilers

Just over three weeks since they most recently were on the ice for a game, the Vancouver Canucks will return Friday night with a home game against the Edmonton Oilers.

A COVID-19 outbreak left 22 players and four staff members testing positive overall. There were 16 Canucks players on the COVID-19 list earlier this week, and as many as seven players were still on the list Wednesday.

The Canucks finally are scheduled to have their first practice Thursday in advance of Friday's game and will be immediately tested against the Oilers' powerful offense.
