Head coach David Quinn and assistant coaches Jacques Martin, David Oliver and Greg Brown will not be on the bench for the contest.

Instead, the Rangers will turn to coaches from its AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack, to fill-in on Wednesday. Wolf Pack head coach Kris Knoblaugh will serve as the head coach while associate head coach Gord Murphy and Rangers associate general manager Chris Drury will act as assistants.

Having an absence due to COVID-19 protocol is not uncommon this NHL season, as playing the campaign amid the pandemic has led to exposure, outbreaks and contact tracing. Still, an entire coaching staff missing in action is quite a unique situation.

New York's next scheduled games come Friday and Saturday against the Capitals, and given the new development, it's unclear if Washington's opponent will have its coaching staff back in action for those contests.
