New York Rangers winger Kaapo Kakko and St. Louis Blues forward Sammy Blais have been added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list.

Kakko was not in the lineup when the Rangers beat the Washington Capitals on Saturday afternoon. Blais will not play when the Blues host the San Jose Sharks Saturday night.

This is Kakko's second appearance on the list this season after he was on it for two days at the start of February. Being on the list does not necessarily mean a player has tested positive for COVID-19.
