Declared unfit to play without more details on Thursday, forward of the Boston Bruins David Pastrnak has been placed in quarantine after being in contact with an individual who has had the COVID-19.
This was revealed Friday at The Athletic officer of the Czech J. P. Barry, ensuring that his client had received a diagnosis negative.
The co-recipient of the trophy Maurice Richard in 2019-2020 had trained on Wednesday, but had been deemed unfit for the competition the next day, which has prompted many people to ask questions. Pastrnak has not skated with his teammates Friday, not more. The duration of the absence is unknown for now.
Same situation on the side of Ondrej Kase, who is a good friend of Pastrnak. The Czech has missed the last two workouts of the Bruins for some odd reason. Joakim Nordstrom also lacked the call Friday.
“I don’t want to judge Pasta or Kase without knowing the facts of what happened before they get here. I know they have traveled from Europe. Like a lot of guys, they had to be placed in quarantine or to isolate themselves from the team or have X number of tests negative,” said head coach Bruce Cassidy, Thursday.
The latter hopes that the national League will allow players in quarantine to train alone, while little details have been given in this sense.
The Bruins will fly to the “city bubble” in Toronto on the 26th of July.
