NHL releases COVID-19 testing results from first 5 days of training camp

·1 min read

On Monday, the NHL released the COVID-19 testing results from the first five days of Phase 3's formal team training camps.

Only two players tested positive within the window (July 13-17) after 2,618 tests were administered to more than 800 players. According to the league, both players that tested positive "have self-isolated and are following CDC and Health Canada protocols."

The NHL is not disclosing the names of players that test positive. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, players that test positive for COVID-19 will be deemed "unfit to play", just as injured players are.

The Blackhawks will finish their training camp on July 26 before heading to Edmonton for the NHL's 24-team postseason tournament the same day.

The Hawks take on the St. Louis Blues in an exhibition game on July 29, then begin their best-of-five qualifying round series with the Edmonton Oilers on Aug. 1.
