Toronto Maple Leafs dealing with COVID outbreak as games are postponed

The Toronto Maple Leafs placed head coach Sheldon Keefe, assistant coach Spencer Carbery and three players in the COVID-19 protocol on Saturday.

Goaltender Jack Campbell and defensemen TJ Brodie and Travis Dermott were the players affected. Earlier Saturday, the NHL postponed Toronto’s road games against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night and the Seattle Kraken on Sunday night.

The outbreak involves seven players. Forwards Alexander Kerfoot, Wayne Simmonds, Jason Spezza and John Tavares were placed in the protocol on Friday.

The Maple Leafs also had their game against Calgary postponed on Thursday due to the Flames’ COVID-19 issues.

“I think everyone’s a little on edge and unsure of what’s happening,” Toronto general manager Kyle Dubas said on a conference call on Saturday.

Toronto is slated to play next Thursday when it hosts the St. Louis Blues.
