Tonight’s game between the Canadiens and the Oilers is currently in limbo due to two players – Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Joel Armia – who have to enter the COVID protocol after tests for them or those around them had to return other thing that negative. Both players took part in the team’s morning training, which means if they were infected there is a risk of viral spread.

It’s a similar situation to the only other game at the Bell Center this season between the two clubs, when it emerged that Jesse Puljujarvi had had an inconclusive test (although it later turned out to be a false alarm). This game was simply delayed for an hour to get test results for other players.

If the game continues, (1) it means that the situation is probably not as bad as feared since the two players in question were with their teammates earlier in the day, and (2) the Habs will have to complete alignment. with the players of the taxi team. It would have been nice to see players like Lukas Vejdemo and Jesse Ylõnen get their shot, but with the Laval Rocket playing in Calgary, places will likely be given to Laurent Dauphin and Michael Frolik, the two forwards held in reserve.

For now, all we can do is wait and see what the league decides to do and hope that neither Kotkaniemi nor Armia have been infected.
