Blackhawks Host Capitals Tonight

The Blackhawks are back on their home ice tonight to clash with the Washington Capitals. Chicago had its game on Monday against Calgary postponed due to COVID-19 issues for the Flames. The ‘Hawks have been off since a 5-4 loss in Toronto on Saturday. That dropped them to 10-15-and-2 on the season.

Guerin Named GM Of US Olympic Hockey Team

USA Hockey has promoted Minnesota Wild general manager Bill Guerin to take over as general manager of the men’s Olympic team. He takes over two months after Stan Bowman’s resignation in the wake of the Chicago Blackhawks’ sexual assault scandal. New York Rangers general manger Chris Drury was named assistant GM. Meanwhile, some NHL players say they are unsettled by word that a positive COVID-19 test during the Winter Olympics in China could lead to a long quarantine. The International Olympic Committee has said an athlete who tests positive in China will need to produce two negative results 24 hours apart. If they’re unable to do so, the quarantine period could last from three to five weeks. The NHL has until January 10 to pull out of the Olympics without financial penalty if COVID-19 causes enough of a disruption to its season.

NFL

Browns Facing COVID-19 Outbreak

For the second straight season, the Browns are dealing with a major COVID-19 outbreak during their playoff push. Cleveland’s postseason hopes were rocked when the team placed eight players on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The eight include top wide receiver Jarvis Landry, tight end Austin Hooper and starting offensive linemen Wyatt Teller and Jedrick Wills Jr. Those players will all likely miss Saturday’s crucial game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Rams, Chiefs Have COVID-19 Issues

Kansas City’s two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Chris Jones was placed in the COVID-19 protocol, one day after wide receiver Josh Gordon was added to the list. Chiefs coach Andy Reid wasn’t sure whether either player will be available when the AFC West leaders visit the Chargers on Thursday night. Rams receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and six of his teammates went on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday. Defensive backs Terrell Burgess and Juju Hughes, tight end Brycen Hopkins, tackle Alaric Jackson and injured nose tackle Sebastian Joseph-Day also went on the list. The Rams activated tight end Tyler Higbee from the list.
