This just in, the Toronto Maple Leafs have removed forward William Nylander from the lineup for tonight's game against the Montreal Canadiens due to a COVID-19 exposure event outside of the team. Incredibly though, the game has been allowed to go ahead according to the NHL.
Check it out:
The question is... when was it discovered that Nylander had been exposed to the virus? Had he come into contact with teammates after the exposure? Has he produced a negative test result? Because if he had come into contact with teammates after the exposure event and hasn't produced multiple negative tests, I don't see how this game can go ahead as scheduled.
More to come.
