The Vancouver Canucks' season being brought to a standstill by the COVID-19 pandemic makes players and coaches elsewhere in the all-Canadian North Division uneasy for that team and their own. 

Sixteen of the 22 players on the Canucks' active roster were on the NHL's protocol list with Sunday's addition of forward Marc Michaelis and defenseman Jalen Chatfield. 

A member of the coaching staff had also been affected. 

The Canucks are off the ice at least until Tuesday and have had four games postponed because of the virus.
