Rodrigues (COVID-19 protocols) exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Friday.

While the Penguins will get Rodrigues back ahead of Sunday's clash with the Sharks, they also placed Jeff Carter in the protocols Friday. Even with the potential return of Jake Guentzel (upper body) and Bryan Rust (lower body), the 28-year-old Rodrigues figures to remain in a top-six role for the time being. In his last 10 outings, the Toronto native has registered three goals, all with the man advantage, and six assists.
