A similar statement from the Canucks team said that they were 100% behind the move.
They were to play the Vegas Golden Knights, who also posted on social media that they stood completely behind the players.
"This is bigger than hockey," said the Canucks, and games are not expected to be rescheduled until Saturday at the earliest.
