Four players on the Vegas Golden Knights have tested positive for COVID-19, the team confirmed in a statement provided to Sportsnet.
“Four Golden Knights players recently tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Those individual players have been self-isolating and are all recovering well,” the statement reads. “As a precautionary measure, the Golden Knights’ off-ice player areas (locker room, lounge, gym, training room and video room) will be closed to all players and team staff through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.”
The statement goes on to say that the team’s practice facility, the City National Arena, remains open under guidelines laid out by public health officials in Nevada. As has been the case since the NHL first returned to play this summer, no other information about the identities of the players was given.
“We will continue to follow recommendations and guidance from the CDC, NHL and our local officials to ensure the health and safety of our community, players and staff,” the Golden Knights said.
The NHL is targeting Jan. 1 as the start date for the upcoming season, though the league’s return-to-play plans have yet to be finalized.
