Two more Calgary Flames players and another staff member entered COVID-19 protocols on Thursday.

Forward Dillon Dube and defenseman Oliver Kylington became the 17th and 18th players on a list that also includes head coach Darryl Sutter, his two top assistants and at least eight support staff members.

The NHL postponed all four games on the Flames’ schedule this week. They are scheduled to return to action next Tuesday against the visiting Anaheim Ducks.

Dube, 23, has 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in 28 games this season. Kylington, 24, has 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) in 27 games.
