The NHL has suspended the Calgary Flames.

The NHL stated on Monday morning that the Flames would be suspended for a few days due to an increase in positive tests inside the club. The fact that these positive test results came in rapid succession, all within a 24-hour period, appears to be why the NHL acted so rapidly in this case.
Elias Lindholm, Andrew Mangiapane, Brad Richardson, Adam Ruzicka, Chris Tanev, Nikita Zadorov, and a member of the training staff have entered the NHL's COVID-19 Protocol.
Here is the NHL's official statement:
''The National Hockey League announced today that as a result of six Calgary Flames Players and one staff member entering the NHL's COVID Protocol within a 24-hour period, concern with continued spread, and the likelihood of additional positive cases in the coming days, the team's games will be postponed at least through Thursday, Dec. 16. The decision was made following consultation by the NHL's, the NHLPA's and Club's medical groups.
As an appropriate precaution, the team's training facilities have been closed, effective immediately, and will remain closed for Players until further notice. The League is in the process of reviewing and revising the Flames regular season schedule.''
The Flames organisation has followed and will continue to follow all suggested guidelines set forth by the NHL, local, provincial, and national agencies to protect its players, staff, and community.
