The NHL announced Thursday that the Vancouver Canucks' game against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday has been postponed.

The league made the announcement one day after Vancouver forward J.T. Miller delivered passionate remarks saying his team was being rushed back after a COVID-19 outbreak, adding that it is "dangerous to a lot of players."

"What we're being asked to do is not going to be too safe, if you're asking me," Miller told reporters Wednesday.
