OTTAWA — The Ottawa Senators have placed a sixth player in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, announcing Wednesday that defenceman Josh Brown has been added to the list.
Brown joins forwards Austin Watson, Dylan Gambrell and Connor Brown and defencemen Victor Mete and Nick Holden on the list.
The Senators cancelled their practice Wednesday for precautionary reasons. They said they will return to the ice for a skate Thursday morning before hosting the Los Angeles Kings later that day.
Associate coach Jack Capuano is also in the league's COVID-19 protocol.
Mete was added to the list Tuesday, hours before the Senators faced the Boston Bruins.
Ottawa cancelled its practice Monday after Holden and Capuano were placed in the protocol Sunday.
Later Monday, the team announced that Connor Brown and Gambrell were entering the protocol and would not travel to Boston.
Watson entered the protocol on Friday.
