The NHL postponed two more games Friday due to coronavirus-related attendance restrictions in Canada.

Saturday night’s game between the Ottawa Senators and host Vancouver Canucks, and the Jan. 15 game between Ottawa and the host Winnipeg Jets will both be rescheduled.

With the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, capacity at indoor sporting events is currently limited in Canada, depending on the province.

Public health orders in British Columbia limit the attendance to 50 percent capacity in Vancouver. Manitoba, Winnipeg’s province, also has a 50 percent cap.
