No Devils games will be played until next Tuesday – at least. 

Not good news for the New Jersey Devils. Four additional players have been placed on the COVID-19 Protocol list, putting 10 total players on the list. As a result, the NHL has postponed all of the team’s games through Feb. 6.

The Devils’ next possible game would be Tuesday, Feb. 9 against Pittsburgh.

The Devils COVID Protocol list now includes Mackenzie Blackwood, Connor Carrick, Aaron Dell, Andreas Johnsson, Janne Kuokkanen, Michael McLeod, Kyle Palmieri, Sami Vatanen, Pavel Zacha, and Travis Zajac.

The Devils facilities will remain closed to all players until further notice.
