St Louis Blues defenseman Justin Faulk recently admitted he’s doesn’t enjoy playing hockey games in Canada. The Blues are currently on a Western Canada road trip and faced off against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday and head to Calgary to take on the Flames on Monday night.
Faulk met with the media late last week and had this to say about playing away games north of the border right now:
I’m not looking forward to going to Canada one bit. But we’ll play some hockey games and get it over with and then come back. I mean it just seems to be that things are going a little bit differently up there than they are here. I like where we’re at in this country, so we’ll go with that
The testing measures are certainly different between the USA and Canada at the moment for COVID-19 and when you cross the border, these are the types of things you have to worry about. Add in the attendance issues of not having full capacity and it surely brings a different element to road games in Canada at the moment.
The 29-year-old defenseman is enjoying himself a fine season in St Louis as he’s scored five times and added 11 assists in 34 games. Here’s the full video of Faulk chirping Canada and their health protocols:
