Svechnikov has exited the COVID-19 protocols and was spotted in practice Sunday, according to Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer.

The winger was one of five Carolina players that exited the COVID-19 protocols this weekend, and the fact that he was able to skate Sunday is certainly a good sign for his availability ahead of Thursday's game against Montreal. Svechnikov has registered nine goals and 12 assists this season, but he was trending in the wrong direction in recent weeks since he had scored just twice over his last 18 outings.
