Lucas Wallmark has been added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, the league announced Wednesday. He becomes the third Blackhawks player to be placed on the list, joining Adam Boqvist and Alex DeBrincat.

Here's a reminder of the league's explanation for players in the protocol:

"Continuing for the balance of the 2020-21 season, the NHL is sharing the names of Players who are “unavailable” to the Club (to practice, travel or play in games) due to COVID protocols. Such “COVID Protocol Related Absences” can be the result of a number of factors including, among others: (1) an initial positive test which remains unconfirmed until confirmatory testing is completed pursuant to the Positive Test Protocol; (2) mandated isolation for symptomatic individuals pursuant to the Positive Test Protocol; (3) required quarantine as a high-risk close contact in accordance with the Positive Test Protocol; (4) isolation based on a confirmed positive test result and/or; (5) quarantine for travel or other reasons as outlined in the COVID-19 Protocol."

Wallmark, 25, has three assists in five games for the Blackhawks this season, playing in a third-line role. He had been a healthy scratch for the past two contests with Carl Soderberg in the mix.

The Blackhawks are slated to play the Nashville Predators on Wednesday night before returning to Chicago for a four-game homestand against Columbus and Carolina.
