(AP) — Eleven NHL players tested positive for the coronavirus during the first two weeks of voluntary workouts.
Veteran forward Jason Spezza expects those results to continue as more tests occur and training camps are set to open July 10. But the league is not considering quarantining players, coaches and staff during those mandatory sessions. Instead, players are being instructed to remain home when not at the rink.
The hope is avoiding public settings as much as possible prevents any outbreaks before games would resume in two “hub” cities in late July when teams will be isolated from the general public.
