The NHL did not specify which team prompted the postponement, though four Hurricanes players were added to the COVID-19 list Tuesday.
The NHL already postponed the start of the Dallas Stars' season after six players and two staff members tested positive for the virus.
Hurricanes players Warren Foegele, Jordan Martinook, Jaccob Slavin and Teuvo Teravainen joined captain Jordan Staal on the unavailable list because of COVID-19 protocols.
The teams aren’t scheduled to play again in Nashville until the end of the season with back-to-back games on May 7-8.
Now the Predators, who gave players Tuesday off after the postponement, are scheduled to visit Dallas on Friday night for the Stars' season opener.
