Erne (COVID-19 protocols) is on the ice for pregame warmups against Tampa Bay on Saturday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. As such, Erne appears to have cleared the league's protocols after missing Tuesday's game against Columbus. He should jump back into his usual middle-six role.
Erne was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocol Wednesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. This news comes as a bit of a surprise, considering Erne already spent time in the league's protocol earlier this season. Khan speculates that the placement could be due to a false positive COVID-19 test, but the transaction will keep Erne away from traveling and practicing with the team.
