Vasily Podkolzin is healthy-scratched while Covid-19 wreaks havoc with overseas hockey schedules

It has been challenging to follow the Vancouver Canucks’ NHL properties playing overseas this hockey season so far. The Covid-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc with the various over-the-pond leagues’ schedules. Scheduled games are cancelled regularly, even at the last minute. New contests are also added out-of-the-blue to the daily offerings. Long gone are the guaranteed games published on lists months in advance. This unpredictability is made easier by the empty or barely populated rinks at most venues. Fixed schedules are there more so for the paying customers than the players in normal times. Not so much in the new normal.
