  COVID protocol-related absences: 03/31/21 Each day, the NHL will publicly release the list of players that are unavailable to their respective teams due to being in COVID-19 Protocol. Here is the list for today: © Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports Anaheim – Alexander VolkovBoston – Jake DeBruskFlorida – TBALos Angeles – Brendan LemieuxMinnesota – Zach PariseMontreal – Joel Armia, Eric StaalNY Rangers – Brett Howden Vancouver – Adam GaudetteAs a reminder, inclusion on this list does not mean that a player has tested positive for Coronavirus or even that they have been confirmed as a close contact to another positive person.

Jake Paul is set to fight in another boxing match, although this time it'll be a much more worthy opponent in Ben Askren.

Paul initially fought KSI's little brother Deji Olatunji as an amatuer in the undercard for the first Logan Paul and KSI fight (which he won after Deji forfeited). He then turned professional, winning via TKO over YouTube personality AnEsonGib. His second professional fight was against former NBA player Nate Robinson, and Paul won with a vicious knockout.

Now he faces Askren, a retired MMA fighter and Olympic wrestler. While Askren has an impressive resume, he's also never fought in a boxing match before. Askren and Paul have different thoughts about how that will factor into this fight.

NHL postpones Wednesday's Calgary-Vancouver game

  NHL postpones Wednesday's Calgary-Vancouver game The NHL has decided to ere on the side of caution as a result of Adam Gaudette’s positive COVID-19 test.  Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reports (Twitter link) that tonight’s game between the Canucks and Flames has been postponed.  TSN’s Frank Seravalli tweets that the decision was made after more information has surfaced regarding Vancouver’s test results; that information obviously has not yet been made public.

"This is boxing versus MMA, and you're going to see the difference," Paul said during the fight press conference. "You're going to see the difference of a wanna-be fighter, a guy who choked in the Olympics, a guy who choked in the UFC, and now a guy who is going to choke against Jake Paul. I'm going to end this guy's career."

Askren, on the other hand, says this will be an easy transition.

"When you think about it, boxing is so much easier than mixed martial arts. You just have to take your two hands and punch somebody in the face," Askren said to MMA Fighting.

Although he does admit it's a different sport. But he's still confident saying, “If I want to beat up an amateur boxer, it ain’t gonna take me more than three months of training to do so.”
