Granlund is unavailable due to the league's COVID-19 protocols.

Coach John Hynes said Sunday that Granlund was expected to miss the beginning of the season due to quarantine, so this news isn't quite surprising. The Finn was listed as a non-roster player for Thursday's game against the Blue Jackets, so this news clarified his absence. Expect Granlund to return to his usual top-six role once he's officially cleared.
