Gaudette was pulled from practice Tuesday after testing positive for COVID-19.
The league’s rules require players and staff to be tested daily and any time an individual’s initial test comes back positive, the lab does a second test on the initial sample.
If the second test is negative, a second sample is collected. If that second sample returns a positive result, it is considered to be a “confirmed positive.”
The league requires individuals who test positive to self isolate for 10 days, and for close contacts to self isolate for 14 days.
The Canucks are scheduled to play the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.
