Sabres’ Casey Mittelstadt added to NHL’s COVID-19 protocol list; eight players now on list

The National Hockey League announced today that Buffalo Sabres has been added to the NHL’s COVID-19 Protocol List.

He will not be available for practices, travel or games until he is removed from the protocol.

Currently, seven other Sabres players – forwards Taylor Hall, Tobias Rieder, Dylan Cozens and Curtis Lazar, and defensemen Rasmus Ristolainen, Brandon Montour and Jake McCabe – as well as head coach Ralph Krueger are in protocol.

Buffalo’s practice facilities were closed indefinitely Tuesday, and the NHL postponed four Sabres games as a result of Hall and Ristolainen entering the NHL’s COVID Protocols.

Mittelstadt has one assist in two games played this year.

Yesterday, the NHL announced 12 revisions to the Buffalo Sabres’ 2020-21 schedule. The list of changes can be found here.

Buffalo’s next game is scheduled for Thursday against the Washington Capitals at 7 p.m. at KeyBank Center.
