The Islanders announced on Friday morning that Anders Lee and Ross Johnston were both placed in COVID-19 protocol.

Lee, 31, was originally drafted by the Isles in the sixth round (pick No. 151) of the 2009 NHL Draft, and has played in 532 career games since making his debut during the 2012-13 season. He's recorded 188 goals and 136 assists (324 points), including 52 power play goals and 32 game winning goals in his 10-year career.

Johnston, 27, signed with the Islanders as an undrafted free agent on March 31, 2015 after playing with three teams over four seasons in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. He made his NHL debut during the 2015-16 season, and has since played in 87 games over six seasons with the team. Johnston has only played in one game this season for the Islanders.

New York has gotten out to a slow start this year, going 5-6-2 (12 points) through their first 13 games as they're currently in last place in the Metropolitan Division. They've been outscored by opponents 39-29 in those games.
