Canucks play­ers hit by out­break of mumps

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

— The Van­cou­ver Canucks say at least one player has been di­ag­nosed with mumps and that sev­eral oth­ers have shown symp­toms of the highly con­ta­gious virus. Troy Stetcher is the only con­firmed case, while fel­low de­fence­men Chris Tanev and Nikita Tryamkin, along with for­wards Mike Cha­put and Markus Gran­lund have all shown symp­toms. The Canucks said Fri­day that play­ers with symp­toms were im­me­di­ately tested and quar­an­tined for a five-day pe­riod or un­til test re­sults prove neg­a­tive.
