Rangers coaches to miss Flyers game due to COVID-19 protocols

The whole Rangers training personnel will be not available for Wednesday night’s video game (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN) versus the Flyers at Madison Square Garden.

According to the group, head coach David Quinn and assistants Jacques Martin, David Oliver, and Greg Brown will miss out on the video game due to COVID-19 procedures. AHL Hartford head coach Kris Knoblauch, associate head coach Gord Murphy, and associate GM Chris Drury will lag the bench.

Being put on the COVID-19 procedures list doesn’t suggest that any of the coaches checked favorable for the infection.

From the NHL:

Such “COVID Protocol Related Absences” can be the outcome of a variety of elements consisting of, to name a few: (1) a preliminary favorable test which stays unofficial up until confirmatory screening is finished pursuant to the Favorable Test Procedure; (2) mandated seclusion for symptomatic people pursuant to the Favorable Test Procedure; (3) needed quarantine as a high-risk close contact in accordance with the Favorable Test Procedure; (4) seclusion based upon a validated favorable test outcome and/or; (5) quarantine for travel or other factors as laid out in the COVID-19 Procedure.

Since Wednesday’s upgrade, Phil Di Giuseppe stays the only Rangers gamer on the NHL’s COVID-19 procedures list. Adam Fox and Pavel Buchnevich have actually been eliminated after missing out on Monday’s loss to the Flyers.
