CALGARY, ALBERTA (AP) - Food poisoning has forced the Western Hockey League to postpone the Spokane Chiefs’ next two games.

“It is difficult to be 100 percent sure, but all symptoms indicate that it is highly likely that this represents a case of food poisoning,” Spokane team doctor Dr. P.Z. Pearce said in a statement.

The league said Saturday’s Chiefs game at Tri-City would be made up on Tuesday, and a home game scheduled for Sunday against Kelowna will be played on Monday.

“Obviously the health and well being of our players is the No. 1 in these situations,” Chiefs general manager Tim Speltz said. “Unfortunately with this illness we are unable to ice a team. We appreciate the co-operation of the Tri-City Americans and Kelowna Rockets.”
