Golden Knights general manager Kelly McCrimmon is self-isolating after testing positive for COVID-19.
“We are aware of a positive test result involving Vegas Golden Knights General Manager Kelly McCrimmon,” per a statement from the team Sunday. “Kelly is self-isolating and will follow the protocols and recommendations from health officials and the National Hockey League.”
Puck drop is set for 5 p.m., with the Golden Knights trailing 2-1 in the best-of-7 series.
This is the second positive COVID test to come from a team’s staff/management in this series. Canadiens coach Dominique Ducharme tested positive for COVID prior to Game 3 and will likely need to isolate for 14 days before returning.
No players from either team tested positive when the league released its daily COVID protocol list at 2 p.m.
