Schedule Changes: A Postponed Game Rescheduled & Arena Swap



NHL Expansion Draft New York Islanders

The New York Islanders had five games postponed this season due to COVID-19. On Tuesday, the National Hockey League announced schedule changes for the Islanders, as one of those five games will be made up in January, with a venue swap for the final two meetings of the season against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The only rescheduled game forced another postponement, bringing the Islanders season total to six. There is no date for the previously scheduled contest between the Columbus Blue Jackets at the Islanders that was slated for Jan. 18.

The swapping of venues for a game on Jan. 22 and Apr. 17 was a necessary move due to the rules and regulations in Canada due to COVID-19.

The NHL also announced that a contest on Jan. 18 between the Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.

The Islanders West coast road trip that was scheduled from Jan. 4 to Jan. 11 was postponed by the NHL back on Dec. 31 has not been rescheduled as of yet.
