Montreal Canadiens forwards Cole Caufield and Joel Armia have entered the NHL COVID-19 protocol.

Both players were in the lineup in Monday's loss to the Arizona Coyotes but will now not be available Tuesday in Dallas against the Stars.

The Canadiens currently do not have any other players in protocol, but were forced to postpone a number of games earlier this month due to an outbreak that touched a majority of the roster.

Caufield has one goal and eight points in 29 games as a sophomore player. Armia, a veteran winger, has one goal and five points in 32 games.
