Buffalo Sabres head coach Ralph Krueger has tested positive for the coronavirus. He has been isolated.
Krueger has entered into the NHL’s COVID protocol. He is the latest person with the Sabres to test positive.
Depending on his symptoms, he could be isolated upwards of two weeks. If the Sabres return to action before he’s cleared, the team will have an interim head coach.
Buffalo has had their games postponed through February 8th. Four players on the team have also been put on the protocol list.
The four players include Taylor Hall, Rasmus Ristolainen, Tobias Rieder, and Brandon Montour.
These players are also in isolation.
The Sabres last played on Sunday, January 31st. They played against the New Jersey Devils in Buffalo, New York.
With the postponement of games, the Sabres are the third team to pause their season. The Devils and the Minnesota Wild have also paused their activities.
The Sabres have shut down their facilities on Monday indefinitely.
The 61-year-old Krueger is in his second season with the team. He guided the Sabres to a 4–4–2 record before the postponement in the season.
Krueger guided the team to a 30-31-8 record in his first season in Buffalo.
