NHL Rumors: Senators ‘Expected To Make Announcement’ Of Positive COVID-19 Test


The coronavirus has been making its way through the NBA with Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert and teammate Donovan Mitchell being the first two to test positive.

Four members of the Brooklyn Nets, including Kevin Durant, also have tested positive for the virus.

And now it appears it has made its way to the NHL.

According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Ottawa Senators are “expected to make an announcement soon regarding a positive test of COVID-19.”

Hockey Night In Canada’s Elliotte Friedman reported a “player has tested positive.” If confirmed, it will be the NHL’s first.

Here are a few more details from Friedman:

Ottawa has played the Los Angeles Kings, Anaheim Ducks, New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins over the last two weeks.
