The continuing list of postponements and reschedules has finally hit the Texas Stars. Manitoba is the latest victim, which postpones both of next week's games. After tonight's game against Rockford, Texas's next game will be December 31. The Stars had a few games rescheduled last season due to COVID and the winter storm. This is the first postponed Stars game of the current season.

Here's the release:

The American Hockey League today announced that due to league COVID-19 protocols and related travel concerns affecting the Manitoba Moose, their game at Iowa tonight (AHL Game #373) has been rescheduled for Wed., January 19, at 7 p.m. CT.

In addition, Manitoba’s games at Texas scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 21 (AHL Game #389) and Wednesday, Dec. 22 (AHL Game #401) have been postponed. Make-up dates have yet to be determined.

The Moose organization continues to follow enhanced protocols at the direction of team medical staff and the AHL.
