Each day, the NHL will publicly release the list of players who are unavailable to their respective teams due to being in COVID-19 Protocol. Even though the league is still waiting on reports from the Bruins, Oilers and Penguins here are the rest of the results:© Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports The Flyers placed Jakub Voracek (COVID-19 protocols) on non-roster injured reserve last week.
Boston – TBA
Edmonton – TBA
NY Rangers – Kaapo Kakko
Ottawa – Ryan Dzingel
Philadelphia – Justin Braun, Travis Konecny, Scott Laughton, Oskar Lindblom, Jakub Voracek
Pittsburgh – TBA
Toronto – Alexander Barabanov*
As a reminder, inclusion on this list does not mean that a player has tested positive for coronavirus or even that he has been confirmed as a close contact to another positive person. Included in the NHL’s list of possible reasons for someone being on the list are the following:
(1) an initial positive test which remains unconfirmed until confirmatory testing is completed pursuant to the Positive Test Protocol; (2) mandated isolation for symptomatic individuals pursuant to the Positive Test Protocol; (3) required quarantine as a high-risk close contact in accordance with the Positive Test Protocol; (4) isolation based on a confirmed positive test result and/or; (5) quarantine for travel or other reasons as outlined in the COVID-19 Protocol
Players removed today: Claude Giroux, Philadelphia Flyers
Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe explained to reporters, including Chris Johnston of Sportsnet Tuesday morning, that both Barabanov and Scott Sabourin had inconclusive results on a PCR test Monday and were sent home as a result, although both samples came back negative upon retesting. It is unclear whether Barabanov’s appearance here is due to another test result.

Zaya Wade has officially met one of her idols!
The teen interviewed Michelle Obama for a virtual Q&A session on Thursday, which she later shared on Instagram. Before the pair discussed advice for teen readers of Becoming, Zaya took a moment to admit she was a bit nervous to meet the former First Lady.© Zaya Wade/instagram Zaya Wade, Michelle Obama
"I'm meeting an idol. I'm literally meeting an idol," said Zaya, who is the daughter of NBA star Dwyane Wade. "[I've been] preparing for this moment for so long."
Obama, 57, reassured 13-year-old Zaya that she was just as excited to meet her.
"I hear you're slotting me in between school, so I feel very special," she joked. "Ask your teacher for forgiveness from me because you're doing me a favor."

Zaya started off the Q&A by asking Obama's advice for teens "who want to be themselves and thrive like you have and currently are."
"Well, like you have and currently are," Obama said to Zaya. "I am just so proud of you, you know, being just an amazing role model and embracing your truth."

"At your age, or in the teenage years and probably through your 20s, you're gonna be experimenting with so many versions of yourself, right?" Obama said. "All young people are trying on different versions, different voices, they're learning more about their intellect, they're learning about what they love, what they're good at, what they like. This is the period of exploration."

The best-selling author encouraged Zaya and other teenagers not to put pressure on themselves to figure out who they want to be at such a young age.
"You're not supposed to know yet," she assured.

Obama then turned the mic over to Zaya, asking what advice she had for young people trying to find themselves.
"We all think that we thrive with people who are just like us, but I think getting a different perspective from someone else who isn't like you really helps," Zaya said. "That definitely helped me in becoming me and defining my truth."
