Anaheim – Alexander Volkov

Boston – Jake DeBrusk

Florida – TBA

Los Angeles – Brendan Lemieux

Minnesota – Zach Parise

Montreal – Joel Armia, Eric Staal

NY Rangers – Brett Howden

As 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. Included in the NHL’s list of possible reasons for someone being on the list is are the following:

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.

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 . (1) an initial positive test which remains unconfirmed until confirmatory testing is completed pursuant to the Positive Test Protocol ; (2) mandated isolation for symptomatic individuals pursuant to the Positive Test Protocol ; (3) required quarantine as a high-risk close contact in accordance with the Positive Test Protocol ; (4) isolation based on a confirmed positive test result and/or; (5) quarantine for travel or.

other reasons as outlined in the COVID -19 Protocol . Players removed today: Brad Marchand, Boston Bruins; Travis Boyd, Vancouver Canucks. As reported earlier, Vancouver’s Gaudette has tested positive for Coronavirus. Of course, with Boyd switching places with Gaudette and Marchand dropping off Boston’s list, this was actually a net positive day in the league’s battle with COVID . Especially when considering that Volkov, Lemieux, and Staal are only on the list due to protocols involving travel, related to their recent trades, there are only six players whose health status is actually unknown.

(1) an initial positive test which remains unconfirmed until confirmatory testing is completed pursuant to the Positive Test Protocol; (2) mandated isolation for symptomatic individuals pursuant to the Positive Test Protocol; (3) required quarantine as a high-risk close contact in accordance with the Positive Test Protocol; (4) isolation based on a confirmed positive test result and/or; (5) quarantine for travel or other reasons as outlined in the COVID-19 Protocol

Players removed today: Sean Kuraly, Boston Bruins

Kuraly coming off means it’s another good day for the NHL, even though Adam Gaudette’s positive test was confirmed today. The Vancouver forward will miss a minimum of ten days, but hopefully, no more positive results will show up among the Canucks roster.

With a full report in on time from all 31 teams, here is the list for today Pageau in particular was curiously absent from the Isles’ lineup for their Sunday afternoon contest without any explanation from the club, but as assumed he has been sidelined by the league’s COVID Protocol . The team surely hopes it is a case of a false positive or some other minor occurrence, as Pageau is even more important to New York right now given the long-term injury absence of
