Some late breaking news before the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Montreal Canadiens.
Leafs' forward William Nylander has been placed on the COVID list.
It seems it's a precautionary measure as Nylander might have been a close contact.
The Leafs announced that Alexander Barabanov will jump into the lineup and the game will go on as scheduled.
More details to come before the game.
For precautionary reasons, William Nylander will not play tonight vs Montreal as he has had exposure to a possible positive case with a close contact outside the team. Nylander is isolating and the situation will be re-evaluated tomorrow pending the results of further testing.
