NHL COVID-19 protocol list tracker: More than 150 players have missed time this season in the protocol – CBS Sports

Despite trying to mitigate the challenges of staging a season during a pandemic, with a shortened 56-game regular season with only divisional play, the NHL has seen quite a few players miss time as a result of COVID-19. When a player is out, he lands on the COVID-19 protocol list, but a positive test isn't required to wind up on the list. Some players have tested positive COVID-19 while some may have just been exposed to someone that has tested positive among other factors.

Players that have appeared on the league's COVID-19 Protocols List can be the result of several factors including:

The Vancouver Canucksare one of the teams that have been heavily impacted by COVID-19 during the 2021 season. The Canucks have had 22 players and an additional four staff members test positive for COVID-19 since March 30. The team's games have been postponed through April 16 to give the team more time to recover and prepare to return to play.

In addition, the Buffalo Sabres had six games postponed as a result of COVID-19 protocols while the New Jersey Devils had five games postponed earlier this season.

Here's a closer look at which players have missed time and how many games they've missed as a result of COVID-19.
