As the news just seems to get worse day by day, the Oilers have been struck with more positive cases, which has now forced the league to postpone their game until next weekend, as they will play Saturday, January 15th.
The Oilers covid protocol list now has these players on it: Connor McDavid, Derek Ryan, Tyson Barrie, Slater Koekkoek, Brendan Perlini, Kailer Yamamoto, Evan Bouchard, Ilya Konovalov, with Tyler Benson and Warren Foegele being the two latest ones to be added. Along with those players, multiple Oilers’ staff members were also placed on covid protocol.
Along with tomorrow’s game, the Oilers were forced to postpone three home games before this and another game this coming weekend in Winnipeg.

It’s a mystery when the Oilers will play their next game, as the story is changing every minute, it seems.
