The Pittsburgh Penguins have announced that one of their players has tested positive for COVID-19. He is not in Pittsburgh and has been in isolation since experiencing symptoms, but has already recovered. Those who came in close contact with him have been notified. The identity of the player has not been revealed.
This is the ninth NHL player who has tested positive (at least publicly revealed to have tested positive) following five members of the Ottawa Senators and three members of the Colorado Avalanche that were diagnosed months ago.
