The national players of the Adler Mannheim no longer have to compete in the German Ice Hockey League (DEL) before leaving for the Olympic Games.
The game of the eight-time champions on Friday evening at the Nuremberg Ice Tigers was canceled at short notice because the Franconians could not provide a playable team due to a corona outbreak.
At the beginning of the week, the Mannheimers also had a total of 14 positive corona tests in the team and in the coaching and supervisory staff. According to SID information, at least one Olympic participant is affected.
On Thursday, the Mannheim health department lifted the complete quarantine for the team and parts of the team resumed training.
The selection of the German Ice Hockey Federation (DEB) meets on Monday in Mannheim and flies to Beijing on Wednesday.
