Two more Blackhawks added placed in COVID-19 protocol originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Nicolas Beaudin and Ryan Carpenter were placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, the league announced Saturday. The news comes hours after the Blackhawks canceled practice "out of an abundance of caution due to potential exposure of COVID-19."

Adam Boqvist, Alex DeBrinat and Lucas Wallmark were added to the list earlier this week, which means five Blackhawks are now in the protocol.

Here's the official wording from the NHL on what that means:

"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."

The Blackhawks, as of this writing, are scheduled to host the Columbus Blue Jackets at the United Center on Sunday. Beaudin and Carpenter each played in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.
