Bratt was added the the COVID-19 protocol list Wednesday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
Bratt has resided on injured reserve since Jan. 14, and it's likely that it was related to a mandatory quarantine due to COVID-19 protocols. The 22-year-old currently has no timetable for a return, but he won't be able to practice or travel with the team until he gains full clearance. Bratt is expected to jump into a middle-six role whenever he's cleared to play.
The Devils placed Bratt (undisclosed) on injured reserve Sunday, TSN reports.
Bratt missed all of training camp while engaging in contract negotiations with New Jersey, but he finally agreed to terns on a two-year extension Sunday, so his placement on IR is likely related to the mandatory quarantine he'll need to complete before joining the Devils. The 22-year-old winger should jump into a middle-six role whenever he's cleared to play.
The Devils signed Bratt to a two-year, $5.5 million extension on Sunday.
Bratt is coming off a solid 2019-20 campaign featuring a career-high 16 goals and his third straight 30-point season. The 22-year-old winger should have a spot in New Jersey's middle six and continue his consistent scoring pace this season.
Bratt netted a goal on two shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blues.
Bratt has racked up five goals and four helpers in his last nine appearances. The 21-year-old winger is up to 32 points (16 goals, 16 helpers), 99 shots and a minus-4 rating in 58 games this year. He needs just three more points to match his career high of 35 from his rookie season.

He now has 15 goals, 16 helpers, 96 shots and a minus-4 rating in 56 contests. A chance at the 40-point mark isn't out of the question for Bratt.
Bratt scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Capitals.
He opened the scoring midway through the first period by beating Ilya Samsonov on a clean breakaway, and he nearly had another goal in the second when he redirected a Nikita Gusev shot, only for the puck to clang off the post and get tucked home by Wayne Simmonds. Bratt now has five goals and 11 points in the last 12 games, and while he likely won't maintain that pace down the stretch, the 21-year-old should still be productive in a top-six role for the rebuilding Devils.
Bratt finished with two points in a 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal on Tuesday.
Bratt posted the primary assist on Miles Wood's opening goal and also scored a goal of his own later in the game that made 3-0 for the host Devils, though, their lead wouldn't last. Despite the loss, Bratt impressed and has now found the scoresheet in four consecutive contests.

Monday's game was Bratt's first multi-point outing since Dec. 27 (three points vs. Toronto) and moved him up to 18 points for the season, in 41 games. The first-line winger hasn't produced like a top-line player in 2019-20, so relying on Bratt for fantasy purposes is not what we'd call a wise strategy. He's better used in a reserve role, only being inserted when the matchup calls for it or in strategic DFS situations.

The Devils will already be without rookie Jack Hughes versus New York, making the potential absence of Bratt all that more impactful. If the winger does miss time, Nikita Gusev would be the most likely candidate to step into the top line in addition to replacing Bratt on the No. 1 power-play unit.
Bratt scored a goal and two assists in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.
New Jersey's top line of Nico Hischier, Kyle Palmieri and Bratt had a hand in every one of the team's tallies and was largely responsible for the Devils even getting a point out of a game where they were mostly outplayed.
