Oskar Lindblom & Scott Laughton added to NHL’s Covid-19 protocol list
After having to add Morgan Frost, Justin Braun, Jake Voracek, Claude Giroux and Travis Sanheim, the Flyers have added two more players to the list.
This certainly doesn’t bode well for the Flyers Lake Tahoe game currently set to take place on February 21st. The NHL has already begun putting together a back-up plan for another East team to play the Rangers. I fully expect the Flyers to be pulled from this game after the news today.
Adding players to the Covid-19 protocol list doesn’t necessarily mean these said player tested positive for Covid-19. It could mean they were in close contact with someone who tested positive or back traced from another positive test. I don’t want to sit here and guess about other people’s health, it’s not my place. I just hope everyone involved (especially Lindblom since he’s high risk) is healthy and able to get back to playing the game we all love.
