NHL News : Nylander out after exposure event, but NHL still allows Leafs to play tonight

Nylander out after exposure event, but NHL still allows Leafs to play tonight

Some serious conflicting messages from the NHL here.

Published on by HockeyFeed in NHL News

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.
