Senators’ Artem Zub has inconclusive COVID-19 test, held out of lineup against Jets

The Ottawa Senators announced ahead of Thursday night’s game against the host Winnipeg Jets that defenceman Artem Zub would not be in the lineup for “precautionary reasons” after an inconclusive COVID-19 test.

The team says that Zub’s inconclusive test result came back on Thursday after testing negative on Wednesday.

Josh Brown was slated to dress in Zub’s place.

The 25-year-old rookie has played six games with Ottawa, recording two assists.

The NHL has postponed 35 games this season, but the seven Canadian teams in the North Division have yet to see their schedule interrupted.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published February 11, 2021.
