Alex Ovechkin was placed on the NHL’s unable to play list as part of the league’s COVID-19 protocol.
Ovechkin and several teammates violated the league’s protocol by gathering together in a hotel room, which was considered an unapproved area. It is unclear how long Ovechkin will be unavailable for the Capitals.
Ovechkin has played four games, scoring one goal and recording four assists, averaging 19 minutes on the ice per game.
