On Tuesday evening the Ottawa Senators announced that one of their players tested positive for COVID-19. The team did not reveal the name of the player. While several players from the NBA and soccer have tested positive for the coronavirus, this is the first case of COVID-19 discovered in the NHL. The Senators had this to say in a statement, "As a result of this positive case, all members of the Ottawa Senators are requested to remain isolated, to monitor their health and seek advice from our team medical staff.” Before the league made the decision to suspend its season last Thursday, the Senators had played the Kings, Ducks and Sharks, all on the road. There is no timetable when the league will return to normalcy.
