The New Jersey Devils have had all games postponed through at least Saturday due to NHL COVID-19 protocol.
In addition, their training facility will remain closed for players until further notice.
The NHL announced Monday that games against the Pittsburgh Penguins at PPG Paints Arena on Tuesday and Thursday, and a game against the New York Rangers at Prudential Center on Saturday, were postponed. Rescheduled dates will be announced at a later time.
Devils forwards Andreas Johnsson, Janne Kuokkanen, Michael McLeod and Pavel Zacha were placed on the NHL COVID-19 protocol list Monday. Also on it are goalie Aaron Dell, defensemen Connor Carrick and Sami Vatanen, and forwards Travis Zajac and Kyle Palmieri. Forwards Jack Hughes and Jesper Bratt and defensemen Ty Smith, Matt Tennyson and Damon Severson were added to the list Tuesday. Forwards Nathan Bastian, Nikita Gusev and Yegor Sharangovich were added Wednesday.
Carrick was placed on the list because he left the Devils to be with his wife for the birth of their child. Vatanen is serving a quarantine after signing a one-year contract Jan. 7. Dell is quarantining after being claimed on waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan. 18.
The Devils are next scheduled to play the Penguins at Prudential Center on Feb. 9.
