Domi, who has Type-1 diabetes, is considered high-risk due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Players have until Monday at 5 p.m. ET to announce whether they will opt-out of playing without punishment, but this agreement between team and player will allow both to make a responsible decision over a longer timeframe.
Domi had 17 goals and 44 points in 71 games this season. Canadiens defenceman Karl Alzner opted-out of returning to play on Saturday.
