The Otters' roster is not affected by COVID-19 and is still scheduled to complete in the team's next game on Thursday at Niagara.

However, previously scheduled games against Hamilton on Friday and Guelph on Saturday have been postponed. It was not immediately clear if Hamilton or Guelph had COVID cases on their teams.

The Otters have had seven games postponed because of COVID-19 protocols, including five home dates. One of those dates, the Martin Luther King Jr. Day game, did get a replacement opponent when Saginaw came to Erie instead of Sarnia.

Erie's first three games in February will be on the road, starting with one game in Sarnia on Feb. 4 before two at Saginaw on Feb. 5-6.

After that, the Otters are scheduled to play six consecutive home games Feb. 9-19.
