The Bruins won’t be back on the ice until after Christmas.

All three Bruins games between Sunday and Dec. 26, when the league’s vacation ends, have been postponed, the team announced on Saturday afternoon. The Bruins had a game against the Senators in Ottawa scheduled for Sunday before playing home games against the Hurricanes and Avalanche.

The Bruins had already postponed their game against the Canadiens in Montreal, which was scheduled for Saturday.

It was also announced that forwards Taylor Hall and Curtis Lazar entered COVID-19 protocols on Saturday, bringing the team’s total to nine. Brad Marchand, Craig Smith, Patrice Bergeron Jeremy Swayman, Anton Blidh, Trent Frederic and Oskar Steen are the other seven players already in COVID-19 protocols. Two Bruins staff members have also entered COVID-19 protocols.

With the NHL being part of several sports leagues facing COVID outbreaks, the league and the NHLPA have announced more stringent COVID-19 improvements that will be followed until at least January 7.
