Svechnikov was one of four players to be placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday, forcing the league to cancel the Canes' matchup with the Wild.

As of now, Svechnikov should be expected to miss the next five games, though the NHL could decide to postpone some additional contests. It's been a disappointing two months for Svechnikov as he has scored just two goals in his last 18 outings in November and December. The winger has chipped in eight helpers over that stretch, including four with the man advantage, so it hasn't been a total loss for fantasy players.
