The Canucks cancelled their practice entirely on Sunday, citing “an abundance of caution.” That they returned to practice on Monday was a positive sign. Or, rather, it was a negative sign: everyone on the team tested negative for the coronavirus.


According to Canucks head coach Travis Green, the cancelled practice was due to a false positive for a player on a COVID-19 test.
