The San Jose Sharks won’t be hosting the Vegas Golden Knights at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, this coming Monday and Wednesday. 

The NHL announced on Friday that both of those games have been postponed due to ongoing COVID-19 issues impacting the Golden Knights. The league previously scrapped Thursday’s showdown between Vegas and the St. Louis Blues after the Knights were without all their regular coaches for Tuesday’s loss to St. Louis. 

As of Friday evening, three Vegas coaches and a fourth member of the team are isolating per the league’s coronavirus-related protocols. Vegas defenseman Alex Pietrangelo and an additional member of the coaching staff entered the protocol on Thursday. Vegas’ facilities are closed until further notice. 

The Sharks were set to host Vegas in Glendale due to a Santa Clara County health order that prohibited team contact sports. That order has been lifted, however, and the Sharks are scheduled to return to SAP Center in San Jose on Feb. 13 against the Anaheim Ducks.
