A Boston Bruins Player Has Tested Positive For The Coronavirus

The Boston Bruins announced a player tested positive for the coronavirus. The unnamed player has undergone two other tests that have come back negative. Some of the Boston Bruins have returned to voluntary workouts, but this is a reminder that plans may not go through as hoped.

The Bruins released the following statement:

Phase 2 of the NHL’s Return to Play Plan requires all players to be tested for COVID-19 prior to using the team’s facilities. As part of this process the Bruins were advised that a player tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The player underwent two subsequent tests, and both returned negative. The player remains asymptomatic. The Bruins will continue to follow CDC recommendations and adhere to the NHL’s protocol.
All Bruins players who have returned to this point during Phase 2 have now returned negative test results.
The Bruins, in conjunction with the National Hockey League, are providing these details in an effort to be transparent and will provide no further information at this time.
