Evan Rodrigues enters COVID protocol as NHL struggles continues

The Pens are scheduled to play next on Wednesday in Toronto, but while there is no news on the status of that game, it’s not looking good either as of right now with defenseman Jake Muzzin joining a list of 14 players (plus head coach Sheldon Keefe) currently on the COVID list. To combat all the positive tests, the league and player’s association have been flexible to amend the roster limits and add back the taxi squad that they had last year.
