VANCOUVER (WNCN) – Sebastian Aho, Seth Jarvis, and a member of the Carolina Hurricanes training staff were placed into the team’s COVID-19 protocol and will remain in Vancouver, the team announced Monday evening.
The Hurricanes didn’t say how long the two players and the training staff member will have to remain in Vancouver.
Jarvis assisted on Martin Necas’ third-period goal in a 2-1 loss Sunday night in Vancouver. He played 16:12 in the loss. Aho didn’t play due to an undisclosed illness. In the past four games, the team has only scored one goal that either Jarvis or Aho didn’t contribute to.
The ‘Canes are scheduled to play in Minnesota on Tuesday.
Carolina previously dealt with COVID-19 issues when defensemen Brett Pesce and Tony DeAngelo were placed in the league’s protocol. They were cleared to play but unable to travel to Canada due to the country’s quarantine rules.
