The National Hockey League has postponed the Ottawa Senators’ next three games after assistant coach Jack Capuano and 10 other players tested positive for COVID-19.

“The NHL will postpone games vs. New Jersey Tuesday along with Thursday vs. Nashville and Rangers here in Ottawa Saturday because of the COVID-19 outbreak with 10 players in protocol. The club has cancelled its flight to New Jersey. #Sens,” tweeted TSN’s Bruce Garrioch.

The league also released a statement regarding the ongoing situation.

“The Senators organization has, and will continue to follow, all recommended guidelines aimed at protecting the health and safety of its players, staff and community at large as set by the NHL, local, provincial and national agencies,” the NHL said in a statement. “As an appropriate precaution, the team’s training facilities have been closed, effective immediately, and will remain closed for players until further notice.”

The Senators were beaten 4-0 by the Calgary Flames in their latest game on Sunday.

“It’s unfortunate, but as long as guys are safe, that’s the No. 1 priority,” defenseman Michael Del Zotto said. “But after that, it’s an opportunity for other guys. It’s a next-man-up mentality.”
