Dubnyk (COVID-19 protocols) still isn't practicing Sunday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports. Dubnyk's inability to practice suggests he won't be available for Monday's Game 1 against the Blues. Jonas Johansson should continue to back up Philipp Grubauer until Dubnyk works himself back into game shape.
Dubnyk (COVID-19) is expected to join the Avalanche at practice Saturday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports. Dubnyk has been out nearly two weeks after testing positive for COVID-19 but could be back as early as Monday for Game 1 against St. Louis. The 35-year-old is 3-2-0 in five appearances since he was acquired by Colorado.
Dubnyk (COVID-19) has tested positive for the virus and will be out a minimum of two weeks, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports. Dubnyk was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol earlier Monday, and it's now confirmed that he will be missing time while battling the virus. Per Chambers, Dubnyk will quarantine in San Jose and return to Denver once he's healthy again. The Avalanche will likely roll with Philipp Grubauer and Jonas Johansson while Dubnyk is out.
Dubnyk was put on the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Monday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports. This move should rule Dubnyk out for Monday's tilt with the Sharks. Assuming Philipp Grubauer gets the starting nod, Jonas Johansson would likely serve as the backup. Dubnyk owns a 3.25 GAA and .886 save percentage in five games with Colorado this season.
Dubnyk stopped 22 of 25 shots in a 4-3 win over San Jose on Saturday. Dubnyk didn't get to celebrate many victories while with San Jose this season, but he improved to 3-2-0 since being acquired by the Avalanche at the trade deadline. However, the veteran netminder has logged a sub-.900 save percentage in each of his last three appearances and now owns an .895 mark on the year.
